    Tried using the doubleplay today on my HR44 700 and it wasn't working. Kept giving me an error that all tuners were being used "all tuners are recording or watching tv" with a list of the 5 tuners below the error. 1st tuner showed whatt was currently on and the rest said "unavailable"..."software download". I reset the machine and the download of 0x740 started and completed now everything is hunky dory. Figured I'd share.

    I know it's off topic for this thread but is there some way to show the list of tuners when there isn't an issue?

    Not sure if this is what you are looking for with this question, but to find out what channel each tuner is currently on. You can use the "SHEF" command procedure on networked DVRs explained by DIRECTV tech. "dielray" at the time here;

    Make sure the boxes are set to allow for external control.

    Has anyone noticed better PQ with this update? Things look a bit more clear, less compressed if you will.

    HR44-700

    Audio delays when switching tuners

    When using Doubleplay or PIP, if I switch to a buffered tuner I get a 3-5 second audio delay. If the buffer I switch to is live, there is no delay and the audio is instant with video. The issue also existed in 0725. I use 2 audio outs, one is HDMI to a Pioneer 1020 k AVR and the other is the Audio Out jack on the HR44 which transmits to a wireless speaker. The audio delays happen on both sources identically. The cables are the same that worked with my previous HR24 that didn't have this problem.

    After I un-pause a recording it will often pause again until I press the replay button.

    Also, PQ seems better. Very noticeable when viewing the guide or menus.

    You can actually force the upgrade early if you wish;

    Since the FW watcher site is back up I see, you can simply monitor it for x0740 to appear in the stream usually between 6-7 AM EST and then do a receiver reset followed by 02468 at the appearance of the "Hello, Your Receiver Is Starting Up" screen.

    I know a there are still a number well-meaning people on the forum today who still insist this doesn't work, claiming your receiver has to be allegedly "flagged" to get a new NR during its progressive roll out. But I've found this claim not to be true.

    Do not try to force an upgrade!

    You have been told this several times. Just watch the TV and learn how the normal things work.

    Even if there were answers to these questions, it wouldn't help you one bit.

    Relax, watch some TV, figure out how your DVR works.
