Return code Description
S_OK The method succeeded.


The method fails if the TIF has not received the program information from the PSI tables in the transport stream. The client should implement the IGuideDataEvent interface and wait for the IGuideDataEvent::ProgramChanged event to be fired.

Each VARIANT type in the collection contains a BSTR that uniquely identifies one program within the multiplex. To get more information about the program, pass the VARIANT to the IGuideData::GetProgramProperties method.

The returned IEnumVARIANT interface is not thread safe. Clients should not call methods on the interface from more than one thread.
