    I have the latest version of EyeTV. I just bought an EyeTV HD box off of ebay. I can get a picture, but I can't get the TV guide to show up. I also can't find any tv listings using the EyeTV configuration walk-through. I want to be able to control my cable box through EyeTV so I can access HD cable channels.

    Any ideas on how to resolve this?

    Sadly you must pay $20 a year now to get the program guide-it used to be free but no longer is.

    Do I need to subscribe to the program guide to be able to change the channel on my cable box through the EyeTV HD box?

    Your EyeTV should have an IR repeater that is placed in front of the IR receiver on the cable box. It needs this to send the remote signal to the box.
