    My Premiere XL4 has been connecting OK each day but it only has guide date to April 2nd at about 4 PM. My other Premiere 750500 has guide data to April 6th. Is it safe to just force a connection without bricking it? I believe I can just go to the Network Settings and do a connect.

    OK...I will try. You know why I am afraid. :)

    I wonder why this happens, my TIVO where I needed the help is great and has program info to April 6th.

    Well, it is sitting at 49% now but the good news is that it must have seen new guide info. I believe that this seems normal that it pauses for a while. I wonder why?

    OK, it worked. Now it, too, is OK up to April 6th. Not sure why this happens!

    The active thread for service connection problems: Daily Guide Updates

    Yesterday was crap. One of my TE3 boxes made its scheduled connection at 17:58 EDT and it looks good. TE4 has slightly different definitions for good.

    It's impossible to say when, but it will happen. The TE4 guide is still a work-in-progress. It looks like a Series 4 guide.

    Well, I have 2 Premieres so my guides are TE3. The one I fixed yesterday is now 1 day behind again!

    I getting a 750500 in a few days. Do I need to watch what I do so as not to brick it? I plan on following normal setup routine.

    Today's service connection was not good. Maybe tomorrow. You will be happier if you consider 8 days of good data enough. Both TE3 and TE4 received a bad update today. For me, it's one day at a time. Monday night's late night is good.
