    Why doesn't the Settings-Info & Test screen show the date of the last fw, like it does with the HRs? Also, do the clients get the new fw if its left on, or does it get it when its in standby only? I'm just curious.

    As long as its powered on and connected, it will get the push even if in standby.
    To see the date of the push, you can go into Recordings/History and it will show the software download there.

    I am looking forward to getting this update so maybe my clients will be a wee bit more reliable. Such as turning off when told to turn off.

    Something got messed up with scaling/native in this release. My C41 is hooked to a 1080p Sony LCD, has been since installation in May. The C41 has been set to "native" with all resolutions checked. This weekend watched a FOX (720p) show from recordings and it was "zoomed out" with a black border all around. I figured the local station could have done that by themselves but fiddling around after the recording ended, any live 720p broadcast was doing the same thing. Definitely a new behavior. Set to non-native, 1080i/p only and things are back to "normal"ish.

    Received two client software downloads at 3:15 and 3:35 AM ET and both my C41-100 and C41-700 updated to 734. C31-700 is still on 717, however.

    C41-100 Diag all report 20131119-193F

    C41 paired with HR44-700, watching a recording via WHDVR from HR34, launch TVApps, get the loading message but that's it, never get the apps. TVApps works fine if watching live TV or recordings on the Genie that it's paired with.

    Still no RC71 discrete on/off for my Sony KV27FS13. Both remote power on and power off are toggles. The RC65x sitting right next to the RC71 sends discrete power signals to this TV TV.

    So I'm laying in my bed, unable to fall asleep due to a rather painful upset stomach that refuses to abateā€¦ and just as I'm drifting off in the dark, I catch this bright blue light that starts flashing quickly. I put on my glasses to see which of the many blue LED-equipped bits of gadgetry in the bedroom it could be, and it's the Genie client.

    Not knowing what was causing this, I leapt up out of bed and fumbled for the remote for the TV, thinking the Genie box had failed in some way and was crying out for attention. Turns out, it's just flashing because a firmware update is downloading. Talk about getting me all scared! I was beginning to think I'd be making an early morning service call. Whew, now I know not to panic if I see this again.

    734 installed just fine and I was surprised at how quick the client was back in service. No issues so far, I wasn't able to reproduce the scaling or apps errors the others reported. I could have sworn I had given my favorites list a new name, but now it's "MY LINEUP". Could the update have reset the name? It was set to All Channels after rebooting.

    On the bright side, it's made me forget about my stomach pains for a few minutes. :)

    I pulled the C31 out of my setup, wanted to get the 5 clients licenses I have in sync between the two Genie's in case that was causing any problems, so I can't help you, sorry.

    Getting the HDMI thing on certain channels....Could it possibly be my samsung soundbar? If the Genie Client thinks I'm trying to record on a hard drive or something that's irritating. I should be able to have my soundbar hooked up and have no issues.

    Interesting you got 724 and I still haven't. Hopefully we'll all get 734 soon and it'll be moot.

    C41 with 0734. In the audio menu I have sound effects turned off, but they are still on. This was the same on the previous software. Also if I select not to share playlist with my HR24, it reverts back to sharing after C41 is turned off and back on again.

    I've seen this problem since day 1 with the C31 clients.
