    Considering I've tried it on two other PCs and am having the same problem--the program is unresponsive--I can only conclude it is, in fact, a DirecTV2PC problem.

    Wish I could help, but I'm still baffled by 11 receivers in an apartment. :lol:

    There are several in each room! The living room alone has 3, while each bedroom has multiples. One of these days the hundreds of thousands of hours of recorded material WILL be viewed! :p

    You may have railed into too many DVRs for DirecTV2PC, as I don't know of too many with 11 and use this app.

    Just an FYI--the program isn't designed that way. On the lower left of the screen is the "Menu" icon and "Back." The latter is grayed out, and when one clicks on "Menu," the receiver's menu pops up. There is NO other menu available except that of the receiver being viewed, and considering the program only allows one receiver to be viewed and not be changed, the program itself is rather worhtless.

    I don't think that's the problem, because not all of them are connected for logistical reasons. Right now there are 5 connected.

    "NO" that isn't the receiver's menu.
    Once you select system setup you get this:

    I wonder if I have an older version or something. Weird.

    Well, clicking on that wasn't responsive as it was supposed to be.

    I'm going to try a few things and see if it works after that.

    I'm not having much luck with this. I've contacted Sony (they don't support 3rd party apps), CyberLink (they are looking into it), and AMD (filed a incident, nothing back yet). I've tried just about everything I can think of, but no luck. I know my hardware/software supports this app, I just need to figure out why D2PC doesn't detect it properly.

    Has anyone every resolved the issue of Screen Capture Protection? If so, how?

    I have the same problem after installing a HR34. Not sure if that is related or not!! The same program worked last night with no problems.

    I will work on it later on.

    Ok, after spending a couple of hours on the phone and reaching level 3 support at Sony, I've been told the ATI chipset/adapter does not support HDCP on my Vaio VPC-SA. The only hope is to get D2PC working with the Intel HD 3000 adapter.

    The issue I have with the Intel GPU is that the audio plays fine but instead of video I get a blank green screen. I'm thinking this may be that D2PC isn't compatiable with the Intel chipset. I've tried using an HDCP compliant external monitor over HDMI but same issue.

    Has anyone figured out a way around this issue? Is there any hope that CyberLink will release an updated D2PC? I have an email into CyberLink, but no response so far.

    Does anyone have this working with an HR34? I've tried this version and an older version. They see the HR34, Activate, but return "There are no recorded programs". I've tried RBR with firewall off and same issue. PC and DVR are on same subnet/same switch.

    I tried to use this app this morning and got the dreaded HDCP error message.
    I'm running Win7 64 and haven't had an issue before.
    Checking my audio driver status showed Windows [Microsoft] had updated the driver in November.
    "Thank you very much Microsoft", as you just broke this app for me. :(

    Since I know my hardware works, I had to go to Realtek's website and download their driver.

    Once again, I have no problem now with this app. :)

    The DirecTV2PC missing titles for the HMC HR34 PlayList has been turned over to DirecTV Engineers.

    We're in week three or as long or as I own the HR34. The CSR I spoke to wouldn't give any tracking details. So I'll just keep calling and emailing. They could be trying to hold out until DirecTV EveryWhere is release. But come Monday, I'll start asking for some account credits.

    When you pay $400 for a receiver, you do want everything to work. That includes the so-call FREE stuff.
