    Sounds like you have a bad switch or bad coaxial cable conection. Does it happen only when you change the channel or at random while watching tv?
    What is your signal strength?

    I had the same problem with mine...I put my switch out side and it rained on it. It then rusted and wouldn't switch fast any more. I have to change the channel then back a few time to get the channel to come on.

    As for the channel guide...I have to turn my receiver off ever hour to get the next hour of whats on. Your date and time has to be right!! Toronto time zone should be -5 GMT.

    Hope this is helpful!

    For the channel guide I have put mine on channel 1352 and it gives me the guide for the next 48 hours.
