Electronic Program Guide

The Electronic Program Guide (EPG) is a feature that lets you scan an on-screen listing of available channels and television program data for an extended time period. Using a remote control, the user can select specific listings from the on-screen display to tune to a current broadcast and select programs to record.

There are multiple ways to programmatically access guide data using the Windows Media Center API.

For Windows Media Center applications, see the following APIs:

For creating the XML document, see the clickToRecord element.

For more information about scheduling TV programs, see Scheduling Recorded TV with Click-To-Record.
