Default TV guide not working

I have a HDPVR setup with a dual LNB. Both tuners are reading >95% signal strength and quality, and I have no problem in recording live TV, or other scheduled recordings.

The TV Guide however does not work. When viewing by channel, only the first 2 or 3 items show up. As I change channels, I can see that for about 1/2 second the remainder of the schedule for the day flashes up, and then disappears again, leaving 2 or 3 items displayed.

HI
ideally the signal quality should be 100%

have you tried viewing by time?

Extended guide was a bit erratic over the weekend, but seemed to be okay again this morning -- i don't think it was decoder related either.

Some channels were complete and others not --
Did not matter which view was used either.

This is a known bug when in favourites mode, its much better in All channel mode. This is being addressed in a software update
