This worked once for me, last night. I haven't had a chance to test it. Give it a try.

I had a power outage because of a wind storm, and my guide came up as a 1-hour guide. I didn't have any timers set to fire, so I rebooted. When the system came back up, it was still a 1-hour guide with the "no information" message on everything else. I hit the right arrow to move about 3 hours out, and was sitting there staring at the screen and scratching my head, when the guide repopulated and the "no information" messages disappeared. I decided to try again, so I went to the end of the guide, about 36 hours out, and sat on it for a while longer. SHAZAM! After a few minutes the full 9-day guide was back!.

This is voodoo electronics, and maybe it would help to barbecue a chicken, but hey, it worked once.

But, I've only seen the "no information" a few times. Usually it just won't scroll beyond Midnight Tomorrow.

SHAZAM! The problem is being caused by cosmic rays and solar flares. I predict that when we get past the storms, the guide will return to normal. Gomer P. told me this.:lol:

Completely off topic, but Gomer got the word from a 1940s and early '50s comic titled "Captain Marvel", published by Fawcett and not related to current Marvel Comics. Billy Batson, boy reporter for WHIZ radio, was given the power to turn into a superhero by an Egyptian sorcerer named Shazam. All he had to do was shout the sorcerer's name.

Don't forget to barbecue that chicken.

My 9 day guide was gone this morning. Back to two days, so I tried the "Caldwell Protocol" again and I guess my Shazam quit working. No 9 day guide magically appeared. Guess I need to find a chicken.

Larry,

I think that you are on topic. Yesterday after I posted SHAZAM!, I checked my 921 and the 9 day guide was back. :eek2: It only lasted a couple of hours.

Yesterday morning at 6;30am I had the 2 day guide. At 7:30 it was the 9 day and still there last night. :) This morning, back to the 2 day guide. :mad:

I tried the Shazam trick for 50 minutes, no luck.

I don't know. I thinking I need to get Lisa Bonet to dance around mostly naked a bleed a chicken over the 921. Yea, that'll do it.

Well, it's hard on the carpet. But, after that I'll probably be thinking about something else besides my EPG.
