Can anyone tell me which transponders on which sats have the guide info? I seem to be having the same problem as the original poster, and maybe my dish in need of a tuneup.

Most people here would not, at least until they had tried to grok the situation with the help of the vast experience represented here. [including several non-subs of DirecTV.]

I, for one, pride myself for solving technical problems without calling the Mfg. or provider unless necessary.

I bet you don't stop to ask for driving directions either. ;) :lol:

The transponder information isn't particularly useful as you cannot reasonably peak to a particular transponder.

Which slots have the guide data depends on your LNB configuration. Do you know specifically which LNB setup you have (single, Phase III, Ka/Ku 3, Ka/Ku 5)?

If you have a whole slot (or evens or odds) that are giving you poor CONUS signals, that's where you probably need to be concerned.
