Default SD PVR EPG synopsis missing

Hi all, I've been searching the forum for issues on the EPG, but most seem to be related to the HD PVR. My very faithfull SD PVR has over the last few months been reducing the synopsis information from 6 days or so to around 2 now. I wondered if it was something to do with the smartcard swap, but all forum posts indicate this is not so. Is there anyway to force the PVR to reload the EPG at all? I've tried the usual reboot, but to no avail. Lastly, can anyone confirm that the SC swap now works 100% and do I have to take the PVR with me? Can I take it to a local agency as the trip to N1 city is reall not an option. Does the swap cost anything? sorry for all the questions, and thanks in advance!

The SD PVR TV Guide has between 6 - 7 days of titles and 1 - 2 days of synopsis.
The variance is based on the number of events, and traditionally on weekends (or now during the Olympics) when there are more events, the total number of days decreases.

The SD PVR has a data limit, we are looking at ways to improve this, but do not have any further info at this point to share (including possible timelines for any improvements)
