Hello TerryW47. I am sorry to hear that you're having an issue with your guide updating multiple times a day. Your guide should automatically update during the nightly update, and unless forced, it shouldn't outside of that. I would be more than happy to help find out why your receiver is behaving in this manner. Can you tell me which model of receiver that you have please? If you're not sure, it will be located on the front of your receiver near the left hand side.
