If you start losing guide data, the receiver gives you a warning. If you lose it altogether, the receiver starts looking for the 101 guide data. In some circumstances, the receiver will actually reset...
Any SWM dish? What about a SWM3? That only sees the 99, 101, and 103. And a multiswitch? What if it's just a round 18? I think if you pick up the 119 it gets it's guide there, if not then the 101.
