Step 1: Clean Start
This step creates a backup of the current WMC tuner configurations, guide subscriptions, and scheduled recordings in the [epg123]\backup folder. The database contents of the C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\eHome folder is deleted to remove all traces of the previous EPG database. If a Hauppauge Colossus HD PVR software tuner is installed, the software tuner configuration files located in C:\ProgramData\Hauppauge\MediaCenterService are deleted as well.
- Start the EPG123 Client program.
- In the Client Configuration & Actions group, click the [Client Setup] button.
- Click the [Step 1: Clean Start] button and wait for it to complete.
This step can take some time depending on the speed of the HTPC as well as how active the hard drive is. When the backup has completed, and the new database has been prepared, the [Step 1: Clean Start] button will turn green and the [Step 2: TV Setup] button will be available to continue with the next step.
