    Just upgraded about a week ago from an HR24 to HR34. When I try to access any On Demand channels other than 1000, I am not able. Screen just does nothing or if I am on 1000 and try to Browse channels, once I select an On Demand channel, the screen stays frozen on 1000. I am connected by DECA and internet connection is fine. No issues on my other HR24s.

    I have to ask...I assume you've tried a reset and all that? I had an issue similar to that awhile back (non DECA though) where the unit said it had Internet Connectivity but it really didn't. It took a couple resets and it started working.

    Channel 1000 and 1100 must be in your favorites list

    No way that is correct. This seems to be a receiver bug/issue. Thanks for the suggestion but On Demand works fine on my other HR24s and no On Demand channels are in my favorite list.

    I stand corrected. That actually works. Is this an HR34 novelty. My other boxes access these channel without the need for them to be in the favorites list.

    My CinemaPlus selections stopped working (i.e. nothing displayed upon selecting any of the three menu options) after the first day, and since other internet functions like apps and youtube were working, I couldn't understand why. Associating setting up our favorites with the failure of CP to work just didn't occur to me.

    Well, I just set up a bunch of the 1000's and CinemaPlus is back! It would be nice to have one small thread with a list of all these things us newbees to the HR series, and the 34's in particular, could reference.

    Ive had the HR34 for awhile now, and the only way I could get VOD to work in the beginning was to put the on demand channels in my favs.
