Is it normal for the guide to freeze for 30-60 secs? The display indicates "acquiring guide from satellite" or "retrieving program information". I have an elliptical dish, if case that makes some difference.

That seems to be par for the course for many of us with the Sony. It not only happens to me while moving forward in time on the guide, but also when simply sitting there and reading the guide. The guide will simply lose all its information and then it takes about 1/2 minute to reacquire. There is obviously a problem with the software in many of these boxes. I have a friend who has exactly the same problem with his. It doesn't appear that Sony is willing to acknowledge this problem.

I have an original first gen RCA box and it has been seeing slow and freezing guides for at least 6 months now. Previously never a problem since day one of directv. It seems the problem is Directv.
