Is there really no way to do this?

If there is, no one knows. Then again, I read that people in RVs that change locals frequently and have guide issues with their local channels found that unplugging the receiver for ~30 minutes seems to force some updates.

I appreciate the response. That hasn't worked after several tries for me.

Sometimes it will update if you turn off hopper and all Joey's it will update soon after and sometimes you need to wait for nightly update. No real ryhm or reason.

Totally agree with the no rhyme or reason lol. Occasionally I see on the TV Activity page where one tuner is updating the guide. This is while I'm watching a program, and most times, not all, while recording something at the same time. That tells me it doesn't need to be in any particular state to update, but maybe being in standby "can" somehow expedite it. Thanks!

In theory, all it needs is (1) available tuner, which is pretty much 100% of the time with a Hopper 3
