    If your receiver recently got a software update, it might take a couple of days for that info to be rebuilt. You can check to see if your receiver download new software on the Info & Test screen in the setup menu.

    Star ratings are found in the INFO panels of movies... my receiver DID get new software last night, so I guess some guide data was purged and will be replaced.... this is the first time I've seen this occur with a software update.

    On the info page for movies. They don't exist for all movies.

    Wish they use the Tomato rating system. which seems to be the new in-thing.

    About once a week, I'll go through the movie guide for movies in that week to set up my recordings for the week. Rotten Tomatoes can be a big help for films for which I am unfamiliar. There was some mid-eighties film I had not heard of, but had an interesting description in the guide. Quick check of "RT" showed a 7% rating!

    It can be quite useful in the right situations.
