I have 2 Hoppers - both have the new (230) update...... Program guides disagree w/one another....how do I know which one is right? How do I fix this and why would it happen? Everything is on my one home network.

Thanks!

Are you referring to guide info or the channel listing?

The on-screen guide was showing "parking wars" and "billy the exterminator" on A&E on one Hopper while the other Hopper listed "duck dynasty" in the same time frame(s).

Just a guess but forcing a reboot by pulling the plug on both might work.

Which one was right? Reboot the other.

Rebooting both ultimately worked. My question though is still: when I see differences that begin later in the day, is there any way at that point which one is correct?

Thanks again.

Most channels have their own web site. If the problem is only with A&E, go there.
