    Happened approximately 2:30AM AZ time. Big download... Took awhile. System is much quicker.... Lag issues seem almost gone. Just caught it as i was heading to bed.... Quick look seems encouraging.
    Everything is more smooth period. My pause and not starting up seems to be gone, yet that happens more random. Couldn't get that to happen though flipping around stations. Will see more later but things looking better for sure at this point.

    Didn't notice the download until picture disappeared just after startup, this morn. RBR and all seems smooth. Download @ 2:19 AM, usual time.


    Most irksome need-to-fix still hasn't happened: disappearing audio when Dolby ON during SD broadcasts. Otherwise, seems OK.

    I've had this for about a week, and I've noticed it's come up with a DVR buffer when powering it on for me every time. I don't have any C31s in my setup.

    Well I am not sure if this is because of this update the the first episode of Hell's Kitchen tonight recorded black. And I found out why. It tried recording Channel 5 WNYW from New York city. Im in Columbus OH so it should have recorded 28. I have Hell's kitchen as a smart search. How would it even find that channel. Its frustrating to come home and find a worthless recording.

    Lag, non responsive remote is definitely gone on my unit thus far. Pause, resume, play issues have ceased to act up also... yet will need to wait a few days for confirmation on that as that particular issue is random and increases as time goes on.

    Thus far im really pleased though.... They finally got an update that makes me give Kudos.

    When you setup the Series Link for Hell's Kitchen did you do it as a "Far In Advance" deal? If so it appears as though the HR34 chose the national FOX feed, found in the 300's, and not your actual local FOX feed. That was a bug that's been reported in the past.

    Well my 3D is back to normal with this release and this is the first Wednesday that I havn't had to reboot the HR34. :joy: Good Job.

    I didn't have a live buffer coming out of standby, no big deal.

    I think most of my network far in advance recorded the east coast feeds.

    This is expected and you will get the new release when DIRECTV sends it to you. I would recommend that you do not force download firmware as others will suggest, it's not worth the risk.

    The new Version Ox067E needs to be in the stream in order for you to DL the newest national release. It is NOT currently in the stream, so doing a forced DL will result in the same version that you currenly have.

    Everyone should stop trying to force the download.

    As always it's a staggered push. Different areas will get it at different times.

    Have some patience and everyone will get the push.
