I have a 508 that has not received the 9 day program guide for a few months. I have always received the 44 hour guide. initially, I thought the problem was the P308 software, but now I have the P309 software and the problem persists. can anyone tell me which transponder the EEPG is sent? the local dish network retailer claims that the 110 satellite signal strength is down and that is the cause of my trouble. my location is Kona, Hawaii.

The 9 day guide does come from the 110 sat. I dont know which transponder but if your not locking on to 110 you will not get the extended guide.

Any pattern to the missing transponders, like all odd or all even? That generally indicates a cable problem.

A 0 is really tough. If it was simply too low, I'd look at a bigger dish dedicated to 110. A 0 would indicate to me that you are totally out of the footprint, and if that's the case, I believe the technical term for your situation is "hosed".

you'll need 1.2 or 1.5m separate dish; I recall ppl from your state discussed 110W a few times here and at dbstalk.com
