I have owned this machine for over a year now and still class it as one of the best AV purchases I have made. It operated without issue until recently when I started having trouble with Guide + which is now officially driving me nuts! To explain Guide + always worked fine with on average 1 weeks worth of viewing stored. About 2 months ago this started to play up with gaps appearing until my grid became totally blank. It is important to point out that I had changed absolutely nothing with my set up so I would be confident it was down to nothing I had done. I had always downloaded via ITV analogue as I don't have Sky. Since the problems started I have scoured and posted on this forum and tried several fixes Resetting my postcode (both to my own and others in the local itv viewing region) to start afresh Re wiring my system in various permutations (I have both a roof analogue signal and one via my local cable tv provider- which incidentally both show as strong on my freeview box it loops through after being through the pioneer). These all have the same basic results:- The machine does a short initial download after which you can see the available channels in the guide plus. It then does the next full download (of the standard three scheduled per day) This now gives me about two full days guide (so assume machine is receiving clear data) Unfortunately despite completing downloads thereafter no additional information seems to be received. Therefore when my initial two days have passed I am stuffed again. This is a real bugbear for me as I really valued the guide+ feature. What would really help me is if as many Pioneer DVR-530H owners could let me know if:- How there Guide + performs? If they have experienced similar problems? If they have, did they find a fix? Going by other posts it does seem as if owners of other brands of machines that use Guide + have had similar problems so I think this is more of a problem with Guide + but to be honest their web site is poor in terms of support or contact details. I look forward to and thank anyone who is willing to help. I hate not being able to fix things!!! Thanks.
