Yes, the E* employees forum *heavy sarcasm*...I'm the only one that posted that is an E* employee. I would hate to give the suggestion that you take less than one minute of your precious time to change your update time to make it more convenient for you. That just doesn't seem to be an option for you. You want E* to make things work at a time that'll work for you and who cares about everyone else? Sounds like your alarm clock may be off if you are missing the updates, because if you set it for 3am, that's when it happens DAILY. Then again, you'd probably complain when you couldn't go as far ahead in the guide as you used to be able to if you disabled the updates, and then would complain about having to wait the 5 minutes for the guide to download. Farewell to you as well, I'm sorry that the logical answers and extra steps that you might have to take to customize your update time is too much for you.
