    1. Could you be holding the button down just a bit and getting slo-mo?

    2. Not sure what to say here, but if your reactions were slower, you'd have more to reverse, yes? I guess I've learned to anticipate when the commercial runs are nearing their end, and hit Play at that point. Not always, of course.

    The RC71 is controlling the AVR volume / mute but won't cut it on/off. This was selecting the Sony model STRK502P.

    I see. The only way my Denon gets shut off is because of its links to the TV.

    Y, with the RC65 you have to move the slider. RC71 can't do that so it forces another remote.

    To be clearer, my RC 71 can control the volume of my AVR, or if it's off, the volume of my TV. If I am running all three, the Off button shuts all of them off.

    interesting problem with 1 channel since i got this firmware. i have the SD channels hidden so that i only see the HD channels, but everytime i go to channel 213 the SD channel comes up. i have to manualy select the HD channels either from the giude or hit the channel return button to go back to previous channel which switches it to the HD channel for 213. i have not found any other channels so far that do this

    Are you perhaps using a favorites list that omits 213?

    no, any way i go to that channel it comes up SD. be it from me punching in the number on keypad or selecting from the 9 favorites that come up and when you press the up arrow.

    There are channel lists that restrict what channels you can receive without keypunching the numbers. Is 213 in your guide?

    Latest news... Just lost satellite signal in the Exede internet connection after six days plus of continuous connection, due to local weather. (thunderstorms) A quick check of the Genie shows full recording activity during the fade with no loss of signal. Confirms that the new LNB restored full functionality for TV as well as restoring the normal higher dynamic range for TV during fading weather. Comparing dynamic SNR levels of the Exede hardware indicates that this fade was over 7 dB to the Via-Sat 1 bird so the similar DTV birds were able to continue to function during roughly the same 7 dB fade cycle.

    Time to catch a fish!

    Since my HR34 got the 6DB upgrade I have noticed a few episodes of freezing audio and video on both live and recorded shows. The box will sit there for 5 or 6 seconds then return to normal operation.

    Don't remember seeing this before 6DB.

    But, by your own admission, it's technically not turning off your AVR. Your AVR turns off because it's getting no signal so your RC71 isn't turning off your AVR. The RC71 doesn't turn my AVR off either.

    Admission!? Don't think I've denied anything.... :smoking:

    But: It's not lack of signal to the AVR that shuts it off. I'm far from expert in this, but I believe the TV, recognizing a signal from the C71 to shut off, signals the DVR to also shut off.

    When I am in FFWD with my HR 23 and HR24, when a commercial ends and exactly when the program resumes, pressing PLAY will auto-backspace about 5 seconds into the end of the commercial and let me see the program restoration from its very beginning. Doing the same with my HR34, pressing PLAY at the resumption of the program doesn't backspace at all, or at least far enough to restart from at the end of the commercial. I have to use my 6 seconds REPLAY button to get me back to the end of the commercial. Sometimes I even have to press REPLAY twice. In other words, my HR23 and HR24 automatically act AS IF they hit the REPLAY button when I FFWD > PLAY and the HR34 does not. It would be a very simple matter for the DTV programmers to make the HR34 auto-rewind in the same manner that the HR23 and HR24 do when one presses PLAY while in the FFWD mode. After a year of nagging about this, I'm convinced they simply don't give a rat's.

    Still the same. Any disadvantage to forcing the download? Thx.

    I'm seeing this too on my newly installed HR44 with 2 clients...for me it seems like its only 2 or 3 seconds though. Also occasion pixellation/artifacts in the image, almost as if rain fade is ocurring...but no rain in the area. Tech spent a lot of time working on the signal strength so I'm pretty sure that the dish/lnb/alignment isn't the issue.

    You can try forcing all you want but you won't get it until your account is authorized for it. Best thing to do is wait.

    Got 0x06db 17 days ago. My HR34 crashed for the fourth time today. Never crashed with the previous two softwares. Had to do an RBR -- again. I thought a quick RBR didn't flush the program guide. Every single time I've done an RBR on my HR34 since I got it 16 months ago the program guide has been flushed. What's more, RBRs erase all of my modified START EARLY END LATER settings.

    HR44/500 records repeats for all series links even though they are setup to only record first run episodes.
