Or more specifically, how to get it to go away?

Haven't invested any more time at this point, but I'll dig into the log file to see whether I can figure it out.
I looked through the PDF of the EPG123 install instructions and also went through the HTML pages version on Garyan's site, but I didn't see anything about the icons. There are some more threads on TGB dealing with icon issues, so maybe I'll see if I can locate a key or legend on there for them.
EDIT: According to this
post on TGB, Gary indicates the yellow (!) appears when you have less than a week of SD subscription time left. So anyone running the SD trial will probably see it, too. I just fully subscribed to SD today, so hopefully this will correct itself soon.
post on TGB explains the iconography pretty well. Green plus means there's an update for EPG123 available. Also, I found another recent thread where Gary indicated the current maximum for guide data in the US was 17 days.
In the client tool there are some choices as I recall. They are for size (or maybe density, cannot recall) and for "none" if you want to go that route. I set up a month ago and am leaving mine on for now. If you have a lot of questions, your best resource is probably TGB.
