The guide is updated via the satellite and I believe that is daily.
The TIVO information is populated into the guide when it phones home. It used
to call home every 2 or 3 days, now the thing is set up to call every 2 weeks or
something like that.
As far as the reboot goes. They should not reboot unless they are patched.
To be patched it has to receive the patch from the Satellite and then be
authorized to install it when it phones home, that is why people yank the phone
cord, cuz they don't want it to update.
I hope this helps.
