    All the other new HD channels have full guides. These two only go out 2 hours. Anyone else with this problem?

    Same here. I noticed this as well. It *might* go hand-in-hand with the fact that 5-MAX hasn't actually had any HD on it yet. Maybe the channels have just launched, literally, and the folks at MAX haven't had the time to get their guide updates propagating to all the EPG services?

    This problem fixed itself, left receiver off for a guide download and the listing came back.

    Actually, today is the first day they had full 9-day EPG data. The first overnight there was none. I also noticed that many shows on 5-MAX are now saying "HD" in the descriptions... but as yet I still have not actually seen any HD on that channel.

    The full guide was available, I got it by doing a check switch, try this the next time a new channel is added.

    I did that as soon as the channels were added. Until this morning there was only 2+ days of EPG info being streamed. The first night they did not have a full 9-day EPG. No amount of checkswitching would help :)

    FYI, even though the guide has 5-MAX programs marked as HD now... still no HD on the channel.
