    No, or at least not yet;

    Only on the component outputs of Blu-ray players when playing HD disc material is this restriction enforced to my knowledge.

    With DIRECTV receiver component outputs you only lose the ability to receive 1080p/24 Hz programming (currently limited to PPV) which is only allowed over an HDMI connection.

    I have never had a problem with the HBO, Showtime, etc. channels.
    I run the 720p and 1080i resolutions and Native to ON since some of those premium channels and several others like ESPN are broadcast in 720p.

    I know I've read of others running into a problem, but it may have been when they were using HDMI and Component (two TVs on one receiver)?

    Yes, could be what you're referring to;

    Whenever both HDMI and component outputs are used at the same time to two TVs, the receiver will disable the component outputs on an HDCP protected channel like the premiums if the TV connected to the HDMI connection is turned off, thus losing the HDMI handshake.

    You will get the same effect if you have both types of connections from the DTV receiver to ONE TV and try to use the Component Input.
    The HDMI does not communicate with the TV since you have chosen the Component Input so the DTV receiver kicks you down to SD mode and you have to press and hold the Exit button on the remote to get back to HD. This is of course once you have unplugged the HDMI on both ends of the cable.

    No, the component output will actually black out altogether with only a copy protection message displayed at the bottom of the screen if the HDMI cable is connected at both ends, but the handshake is lost for whatever reason, like when turning off the HDMI connected TV set, or the handshake becomes otherwise improper. Unplugging either or both sides of the HDMI cable will remove this limitation.

    The "press exit" feature on the remote has to due with viewing the newer HD GUI over the receiver's s-video or "composite" RCA connectors.

    Yep, seems as tho I lumped 2 problems together.
    Bottom line is do not have HDMI and Component ran from the DTV receiver to the TV at the same time.

    Audio drops when switching to a buffered tuner.

    This week I had my HR24 swapped out for an HR44. I now have an intermittent issue of a 3-5 second audio drop when I switch tuners in DouplePlay or in PIP. It happens a majority of the time, but not always. It only happens when the tuner I switch to has a buffer. i dont have the issue if both buffers are live. It appears I can force the audio back with some trickplay commands, or it may just be popping back in automatically after a few seconds (hard to tell which). The issue doesn't seem to happen on channel changes, just on tuner swaps. The HR44 is using the same HDMI port and cable as my HR24 did, and it worked fine. The HDMI goes through my AVR, a Pioneer VSX-1020-K.

    I'm having a similar issue. Recorded programming will FF, skip and rewind but will not play for more than a fraction of a second. Reseting my HR34 fixes the problem. Has occured twice in about 4 days.

    Since my original post about freeze issue, it's happening pretty consistently with every single recorded program. But FF still works. Hoping that D* releases a fix soon, because this is just totally unacceptable.

    I guess this is a very inconsistent freezing issue as after having significant issues on one on demand HBO show last week, I have not had a repeat occurrence.

    I was wondering if anyone else here has a Pioneer AVR and is having this issue. If so, please note your AVR model number.

    Running 0x725 on my HR34. What's up with SCORE GUIDE? The SCORE GUIDE prompt when I tune to a sports channel only appears about 50% of the time. IF and when it does, and when I then press the red button, sometimes I get the good old SCORE GUIDE I'm used to, but sometimes I get a new fangled SCORE GUIDE that look and acts like a Rube Goldberg invention. The horrible new format Score Guide takes 8 full seconds to appear when I press the red button, and then it is difficult and time consuming to navigate through. For example: If a baseball game is being played today and it finishes, the score of the finished game no longer appears on today's schedule like it always does with the old SCORE GUIDE. The final score is shunted over to something like Previous Scores. I can't remember the exact title of the tab. Then you have to scroll through about 8 pages to find the score of the game that just ended 2 minutes ago! Utterly stupid!

    BTW: With 0x725, my HR34 still oftentimes will freeze the picture when I press FFWD. Oftentimes when I use the FFWD setting 4 to get to the end of a video, the KEEP/DELETE prompt won't appear. My HR34 still will not auto-backspace enough when I go from FFWD to PLAY.

    jibberyerkibber....what you are seeing is the NEW HD TV Apps look, introduced with this update. I,too, have sometimes seen the new HD TV Apps "linger" after viewing it, then exiting it, then pressing the Red Button Scoregiude. It is intermittent for me though. The old Scoreguide still works for me. It is new and will probably go thru some modifications. Currently for me it does not have the correct start time for upcoming games. The start time listed are for the Pacific TZ, I live inthe Mountain TZ......
