    been a Directv user since 06, love it, besides the slow menu and guide.

    got the HR34 yesterday, ok

    got the new update 0x04c4, the issue is when i turn off the tv and HR34 off. when I turn it back on I dont get signal to the TV. thought it was the hdmi cable switched it

    changed plug outlet
    switched input on tv
    thought it the tv, reset HR34, after it boots, just turn off tv and turn back on its fine.

    and if turn off both , and turn both back on , no signal on tv, but the hr34 still works. i hit rec and the light comes on.

    tv is brand new LG
    anyone else has this issue?

    I'm using the D* remote. hit the off button.
    leave, come back,
    hit the on button, TV turn on shows what HDMI signal. HR34 lights up,
    but TV says no signal.
    hit the reset button on HR34 and it goes to the reboot screen on the TV.

    after it reboots it works fine.

    If i turn off just the TV, and leave the HR34 on. come back, and turn the TV on it works .

    It just dont work if the HR34 turns off.

    I'm stumped. any CE people have this problem?

    This is a inconvenience, if i turn both off by accident, I have to RBR the HR34 to get signal to the TV.

    Dunno yet I'll try that.

    But if that fixes it, doesn't that mean I have a Bad Box.

    Do you turn on the tv first or the hr first? Did you program the remote to do both by hitting the actual on and off buttons? And that's how your doing it?

    If so, I would first suggest that you stop resetting the hr, I don't think thats really solving your issue, just masking what is. It sounds likes a handshaking issue. Try turning on the tv by itself, and after its fired up and ready to actually go, then turn on the hr. See if that helps. Also, if you can, especially if my first suggestion doesn't work, hook up with component cables, and disconnect the hdmi cable, and see what happens.

    When you turn the dvr back on and get the blank screen does changing channels bring up a picture?

    Since the new update on the 21st, I have had to reboot once because could not rewind or fast forward live shows..remote just beeped. I also hwd to power off once because screen froze. I flipped to double play and other tuner was fine. Hit power on remote on/off and tuner was fine.

    CINEMAplus is not working. When I select CIMEMAplus I get the submenu (New Movie Releases, All Movies & Shows, Showroom). When I select anyone of those it just goes back to the currently playing channel instead of bringing up the On Demand screen.

    Version is 0x04C8

    Was just watching the Doctor Who Christmas special (this year's) on BBCA. Around the 28 minute mark I tried to skip forward over the commercials but at that point the skip forward went all the way to the end and the Save or Delete box popped up. Skip back went back to where I was. Tried skip again same thing. I fast forwarded past the commercial and that was OK unless I tried to do more than fast forward 1. If I did again it jumped all the way to the end. Again skip back to me to where I was and I fast forwarded 1 past the commercials. At the next commercial break I tried the same thing and again it jumped to the end. Before the 28 minute point I had been able to skip with out jumping to the end. By skip I mean the mode where it flashes up frames of the video it is skipping over. I had also recorded the same show on one of my old HRs and when I tested with that copy from the HR34 with MRV the skip worked OK thru out the entire show.

    The HDMI port on my HR-34 is not comminicating correctly with my system when it is first started up. The video connects perfectly but the audio does connect unless I do a red button reset. I have tried various cables with no luck as well as various HDMI ports on both the receiver and TV directly with no luck. This is the same set-up and connections that worked flawelessly on with my HR-24 with no problems prior to the HR-34 installation. Anyone have a solution?

    Probably the easiest solution is to use the HR34's Component Video (red, blue, green RCA cables) connection instead of HDMI.

    Which receiver make and model? It would be good for DirecTV engineering to know there's a potential HDMI handshaking issue with that particular AVR.
