In case anyone notices BTV guide update issues this week, I noticed the snapstream network status site (http://status.snapstream.net/blog/) mentions some potential server downtime. Here's what the site says:

Guide Data Server Updates and Periodic Downtime Jun 27 - Jul 5
The servers that provide guide data to Beyond TV are currently undergoing maintenance and upgrades. There may be brief periods of slowness or unavailablity during this time.

The window for these changes extends to July 5th.

Thank you for your patience.

That'll be all those maxtor drives going into the box then I guess.

Expect another outage the following week when they start to fail :)

No, those drives don't go anywhere near the front end servers. They're just some big, slow storage for a few other things we needed to do internally.
