While the TV guide is on the screen, highlight setup, scroll down to general defaults, press enter. On the left side of the screen you will see the general defaults box. Scroll down to auto guide and select off. Scroll to "done" and hit enter. The TV guide will now NOT start until you hit the TV guide button on the remote.
Are there software updates I should have them do to it?
There is an update to fix some issues with the TV guide and cable cards. If you do not use a cable card there is no need to get the update. If you do, call Toshiba and they will send you the update on an SD memory card which you would install yourself. It's pretty simple.
Should they also replace the bulb and do a professional recalibration?
They will not replace the bulb if there's nothing wrong with it. Either it works, or it doesn't. Also, I would recommend a professional calibration, if you can afford it.
