I'm not sure how to go about calibrating the Guru. I only set it so low because the last one I did I set for 230 and next thing I know it was at 290.

I'm not sure how to go about calibrating the Guru. I only set it so low because the last one I did I set for 230 and next thing I know it was at 290. I guess I used the wrong term. Did you confirm that the guru is accurate (sticking the probe in boiling water and checking for 212)?I boil water every 2-6 months and check to make sure nothing changed with my egg thermometer, Thermopen, Maverick & Guru.

How long has it been 178? You may be at the plateau. It may stay for 3 to 7 hours.
If you are getting close to your deadline, wrap in foil and bump the heat a little. Maybe 300 (350 if you are in a hurry). This will speed it up. Some people put a little liquid of their choice in the foil also. You may lose a little bark, but it will be done.
It sound's like the moral to the story is it's more tender towards the upper range of temps, 205 will be the temp I pull mine at I do believe.
