    I have only had my Genie for 2.5 weeks and have started experiencing audio drop offs on recorded programs. I hope the release might address this issue.

    I just forced a download and it did download new software, but it was version 0x05FD. Are only certain boxes able to get 0x067C at this time?

    If your box isn't targeted for the new download, it won't get it and forcing a download unfortunately won't speed up the process.

    Live buffer still not working. Is this a feature that is just out the window now? I loved having it on my HR24 but almost a year with the 34 and I don't think it's ever worked. Every update I always check.

    I'm out of town until Wednesday- would love to hear if the 3D issue was fixed with this release. (Greying out of guide and no 3D channels until you turn HR34 off and back on). I'm also hoping the "jump back" issue was fixed- no jump back when fast forwarding through a recorded program from another dvr using whole home and pressing play.

    Huh? :confused:

    You mean you can't pause, RR, FF, etc. live TV on your HR34?

    I think he means no buffer coming out of standby which is still an issue. It's intermittent at best.

    Sorry all. Yes that is what I am referring to. Live buffer coming out of Standby mode. Still a no go on this release.

    Twice, since getting this update last Thursday, and never before, when selecting LIST nothing is shown in the list. The heading are there, but nothing in the list. The first time I could also not change the channel (this morning I could) and this morning when I selected "Setup" from the menu in an attempt to do a soft reboot the Setup menu items did not come up - just a blank box. So both times an RBR was required.

    Well it was when I first got the HR34 a month or so ago... Became progressively worse to not working at all. Got replacement after the run around for a couple of weeks. They really need to get some type of wide spread respect across all of them there. All comes down to a crap shoot on who you get and that just isn't right.

    Anyways, new unit thus far working good... Awaiting new update though.

    Update occurred last night... As suspected I see absolutely no difference... Skipping issues still exists and other odd quirks. Hey at least this new box hasn't locked up and pause issues. I'm starting to think these FW updates are for show more than anything else. I should get paid to be a Beta tester.

    HR34 is slower than ever with this release. Talk about going backwards. Seriously, how long can it possibly take to make just decent software? It's getting to be a joke ...

    I wish I could go back to the SD GUI myself. It was quite snappy then.

    Every since this download watch now feature has been giving error message saying internet speed is not fast enough to watch now. Speed 12-15 down 3-5 up. Hardwire Ethernet connection. Have got 5 accounts with Hr34 that have same issue.

    I cant believe there are no replies to this. If I was to post a stupid commercial from DTV there would be pages of comments to follow. Anybody else have an Hr34 that can go to the OD and try "watch now"? I have other HR24's in the same house and watch now works fine on them just since the latest NR software has this started.

    I haven't received the update yet so I can't really comment. I'm hoping it stops the system lockups when resuming from standby and changing channels. It doesn't happen every time, but when it does it takes a good 30 seconds before I can actually watch TV or do anything; freezes up solid.
