Congrats on the new setup and keep us posted on how you like it.
Is there a five post limit to view that? He currently at four.
Congrats, you did great.
An HR34 with H25s is a great setup.
Probably safe to assume you're running firmware 0x04C0 (check system setup screen).
If you do ever "restart" for any reason it would be cool to know some of the info from the receiver diagnostics screen such as hardware revision level. You can also see the hard-drive model on the test screen.
You get to the hardware screen by pressing SELECT when the screen shows "Running receiver self-check" during the boot process.
Very interested in the HR34 Hardware Revision level on that very first screen of the diagnostics menu.
If there is, I'm sure he'll figure it out.
No 5 post limit restriction for me once I joined the Group.
I wonder if this is the long term solution to no RVU clients and why the HR34 hasn't been certified.
Cool! And welcome!
IIRC, you have to have five posts before you can insert links or PM. No requirement for viewing links, which is what maybe was referred to.
Yes, my firmware is 0x04C0.

Thanks tgaratx ... perfect.
Since I don't think anyone brought it up here, the DirecTV November 2011 Field Services Update includes a portion of time explaining about the HR34.
There isn't any new information, so no one is missing anything, and there's no porn in the video for those that care for that sort of thing, so you're good either way.
Equipment manuals at directv.com show new GUI and HR34 manual is also there.
... let the anticipation of a larger rollout.... continue?
They are advertising a new 5 tuner media receiver in the Austin American Statesman...good luck getting one.
So, those of you that have been testing these so far, how do you guys like them? Any issues? Any other cool things you can share with us thus far? Any guess as to when they'll be available?
Great box for those that record a lot and watch a lot of tv like myself.
Only complaint is if it were to go down at some point I will have 2x the stuff ill lose from the harddrive, and 2x the recordings/series links ill have to manually put back in. Really hope to get a solution to that somehow in the future....making purchase of new boxes/upgrades/replacements easier on the customer...
Personally, I find an HD DVR with 5 tuners, 1TB, and PIP to be perfect. Quad tuner would also be fine, but 5 is awesome.
Never a tuner conflict, 220+ hours of HD is plenty (for me), and PIP is great for sports. Never a worry.
We'll always have at least two. If the kids were younger, I might have considered 3, but two is perfect now (and fits in a nice SWiM-16 configuration).
All in tandem with H25 remote units to enable everyone to access their content anywhere in the home (Basement, Kitchen, Bedrooms, ...).
Your set-up is very close to what I am looking for. That looks great!
How do I get what you have?
Just be patient, it will be a few more months before HR34s are available nationally.
Is that to existing subscribers or just new subscribers who meet the minimum TV requirement?
