Missing Guide Info WTF

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.

The transponder information isn't particularly useful as you cannot reasonably peak to a particular transponder.
Can anyone tell me which transponders on which sats have the guide info?
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.
