Is there a way to trigger OTA Guide Update? I did a scan and added a few more stations. But the guide is obviously messed up showing descriptions on the wrong lines. Power cycle doesnt change it. Do I just have to wait?

What receiver? If a Hopper my guess is yes give it time to correct. VIP receivers should be correct immediately. Don't know about a Wally.

Doh. I have a Hopper 3. I expect it to update itself in time. Right now, for example, the guide has HSN (home shopping network) on one line but the description info is for the correct show. Only at the guide level it is wrong.

Turn the Hopper and any connected Joeys off (standby) and make sure there's no recordings in progress or scheduled for at least 30 minutes. The guide should start to update several minutes after you turn off the Hopper.

Ok thanks. Everyone watching now, I will try it tomorrow if it hasn't updated. It probably should anyway when everyone stops watching tonight.

I have seen the guide get messed up on ViP receivers after an OTA scan. On ViP receivers, you can force a guide update by rebooting the receiver or doing a Check Switch. For Wally or Hopper, just leave the receivers in standby like JSheridan said.

It should correct overnight. I have a hws and I rescan weekly and the same thing happens with mine.
