I can't set up programs to record as nothing is on. Have run updates, channel scan, mythfill database. Still no EPG.

How do I get my EPG to come back on mythTV?

Is this a DVB (freeview in the UK and Australia) card that you are using? – Stuart Jan 4 '12 at 18:00

If your box stopped, crashed or you switched it off etc. - it is feasible one of the mythconverg tables got corrupted - in which case you need to run mysqlrepair

mysqlrepair -u mythtv -p mythconverg  

It will ask you for a password - which you can find in the .mythtv/mysql.txt file.
