It sounds like for whatever reason your EPG isn't downloading properly. Issue 2 would probably cause Issue 1.

You won't find anyone that will repair something like that.

You shouldn't need your receipt for a warranty claim. Try it - there's nothing to lose.

Some other satellites transmit EPG data on each channel that confirms to the DVB standard. I believe at least 19.2E does.
