When you have to send a re-auth signal, how about doing a checksum on the guide to see if current, if not - reload the current guide and not have to wait to 4am
Using your DISH remote, press the [SAT] > [GUIDE] > [Right Arrow]. Repeatedly press the right arrow button until Pop-up "318" displays. Select "Yes" on Pop-up "318". The guide should begin its download.
That does not work. I press the right arrow until it goes no further, and no popup ever appears.
Can you send me a private message with your phone number and 4 digit security code so I can look into what could be causing this issue?
