Outback Paul said:I got a 510 several weeks ago and it used to have 9 days of program guide but since the last upgrade I have to keep forcing the download of the guide. It no longer downloads automatically. By they way, I don't turn mine off.

If anything it might prevent EPG data from getting to the hard drive unless they have it programmed to spin up if it detects data is coming to the receiver. I have not had any issues with my 721 getting EPG data even while the receiver is on. When the receiver is on around 3 am EST I can hear it working and this leads me to believe that it is downloading updated EPG info.
