    I have not made any changes to the setting on the AVR.

    Then it's possible the pass through setting on your AVR has always been set to something like "last used" and something else use the pass through last and it didn't "switch back". There's nothing in the HR44 firmware that would tell your AVR whether or not to use the pass through.

    The Guide seems to be about 30 minutes behind, which is now affecting my recordings. For example, House Hunters International was scheduled to record at 8:30 (MDT). What I got instead was the last 15 minutes of HHI and the first 15 minutes of the program that followed it.

    Also, the issue of the recorded program freeze still exists. Project Runway froze at the 1 hour 22 minute mark. Couldn't FF. Had to rewind and then FF, but the recording skipped about two minutes of the show.

    What's going on here? They seem to be making things worse with each update!!!!

    Old problem returns running 740.

    HR34-700 Report 20130823-1852

    This happen several updates back then the problem went away quite sometime ago.

    While watching a live show or a recording the screen will flash black then back to the picture. When the picture flashes back on it has black strips through it horizontally with huge blocks missing, not pixellation.
    This behavior seems to start more often after unit has been in pause for a while then return to viewing, however it can start all by itself after watching something without a pause in the mix.

    Might happen once all evening long and might not happen at all.
    What seems to stop this behavior is to put the box into standby then back on.
    Annoying but not a show stopper due to the infrequent nature of the blips.

    You are correct!!! Upon further troubleshooting I discovered my Pioneer Elite VSX 33 is no longer doing standby pass through with any source.

    Lost Audio using Doubleplay -

    While watching the ballgame tonight, I flipped to the news using Doubleplay. When I flipped back to the game I had lost all audio. Flipping back to the news, no audio as well. Tried playback of a recording, no audio there either. Switched to another source on my TV and came back, still no audio. Turned TV off, back on - no difference. Checked HR20 to make sure it wasn't a satellite issue - audio there. Ran system test, no problems found. Finally rebooted, audio had returned. Was not using AVR at the time, only TV speakers. Received 0x0740 Wednesday. Previous version was 0x06DB.

    Not using AVR then, but are you connected via AVR? If so, how?

    Since I got 740 on my H34 I had to reboot the H34 3 times during last week. All 3 of my C31 are loosing connection to it and all I see is a grey screen. Rebooting C31 doesn't help. I never had any issues before except for some network problems during the first week after the install last year. Anyone else seeing anything like that?

    I just got two genie minis yesterday and I've had two times now that I have had to reboot the genie to see anything on the minis. Is this supposed to be happening? I figured that a bug like this would have been fixed by now.

    Received 0x0740 on 8/21 and I'm in the central time zone. Haven't noticed any issues yet, but been traveling, so I've only been using it for a day or so.

    I am on 0x740 on the genie and 0x717 on the genie minis. This morning when I woke up neither of the genie minis were working. I had to leave for work before I could troubleshoot. Right now I'm somewhat regretting my switch to the genie/genie mini combo.

    Entering channel number does not change channel first time

    On channel 672-1, entered channel 41 - banner appears, disappears, channel doesn't change. Entered 41 second time and channel changed. This has happened more than once.

    Anyone else getting intermittent "flashing" via HDMI. Usually on dark scenes or SD programming. Sometimes only lasts a couple of seconds, other times requires a channel change (I'm using native) to clear up.

    Been having this problem for the last two releases. HDMI direct from Genie (34) to TV.

    I've had my Genie for about a month prior to last weeks update I had to reboot the box once.

    Got the software update last week and have now had to reboot my box at least 4 times. Once the server was running fine but the client would not connect, the other times the server froze up and would not respond to anything other then a reboot.

    I really really regret getting the Genie.

    Try flushing the guide. Reboot and after its fully back up reboot again.

    Report 20130826-1B91
    Sent from C41, issue happened on HR44-700 and repeated on C41-100

    Watching recording of Sunday's (8/25) Newsroom on HBO. At 14 minutes in the picture broke up and audio stopped, wasn't able to FF or skip past it until I skipped to the 30 min tick. Issue repeated on C41, where I sent report.

    EDIT: the Newsroom recording was being served from my HR-24.
