4000 - Latest Problems - any answers?

Hi All,
I noticed, my model 4000 lately acting up with the guide...
anyone else? or any suggestions/solutions?
Here is what happening:

When i press Guide...i get the screen with what is ON...
Of course i see everything is kind of slow..but that is nothing
new - it is 4000 after all..
So anyhow - all shows are there...But if click on Info to see what is the show about - i get something like : Retriving sat. information, stand by... - usually i do not mind waiting..
but it is no use for most of the time..the information never comes up...
Also - when moving forward on guide - couple of clicks - and i see - "Info not available" all over the place...
So it kinda sucks..
I think even previous version(s) behaved somewhat better on Guide then that...
At the same time - IRD works fine otherwise..shows the video/audio - no prob..

So any suggestions or ideas?

If nothing could be done to help this problem, but Dishnet's engineers can do something to improve things - Join me please
to kindly request that from them...to maybe come up with new version for 4000 - to fix above problems...

Thanks for listening...

Sadly it may be that the "Limited memory" systems like the 1000/2000/3000/4000/5000 are running into problems dealing with all the locals and other data in the guide. So even if you don't get any locals, they are all still streaming in the guide and taking up resources to be read and then ignored?

Unless you are attached to the DD adapter or the UHF of the Model 4000, replacing it with a 301 may be pretty inexpensive (under $100) and get you away from alot of the bugs. My 4000 was starting to drive me crazy (especially when the UHF remote went bad and there was no IR component to use with a Universal Remote) the 301 brought be back to Normal (if you can ever call me Normal :D )
