This CKS topic does not cover the definitive management of dental abscess by a dentist.I have a KDL46NX720 and have in general been happy/successful using the rovi guide.Occasionally the guide comes up with no channel data but I have reliably been able to remedy that by: 1) Doing a Factory Reset2) selecting "update tv listings" in the guide settings This past week, the guide came up with no data and I followed my above procedure as usual.Also I am able to view streaming content for Netflix, Amazon etc. so its pretty clear my internet connection is fine. Each app delivers content in a unique way and would meet divergent needs for all practitioners, from the experienced clinician to the trainee.
