    Does it take a while to get complete guide data? I notice that some channels show up with gaps in the guide data..

    Took about a day or so for me, about 2 days for the search to fully populate and index the first time. So pretty much like Tivo.

    It does take the 24 hours.... That is just how DirecTV pushes the guide data out. It pushes the next "6 hours" constantly... then the rest is staggered over a 24 hour period.

    Earl, has the HR20 team taken into consideration at all some of the suggestions to store a backup copy of guide data on the HD so that it will load faster on reboots? Just curious, as this is probably my least requested feature addition.

    They have seen it... but they are more focused on getting rid of the reasons to reboot so often.
