    My HR34 has turned on by itself about 5 times or so in the last week, give or take a couple days. Well....it's always "on", but we've come in the living room and the panel lights are on. I checked, and there are no new updates either. Just curious if anyone else is getting this?

    Yes, many people are reporting reboots on their HR34s. DirecTV is triggering this for some reason.

    I hope you HR34 users are reporting this to tech support or any department that's in charge of that, I know I would.

    You can check the uptime in settings to see if it rebooted spontaneously when you were not looking.

    Also consider that these units can be set to work from an RF remote. Check to see if you have any funny recordings (not "Louie CK in concert" funny, but weird because you didn't schedule them). Your neighbors may be controlling your DVR without them even knowing it. If so, change the code.

    That's not it.....at least not in my case.
