    The series already recording message is still coming up. On a good note, the remote is no longer sluggish. After the last release my remote became ridiculously sluggish and now it's back to normal. I also see where they added a new search feature for TV Shows under search and browse. When I access it I get this message "You Might Like is currently updating. Please check back in 1 hour". I currently have genie recommends turned off since this feature really doesn't really interest me anyway.

    If you opt in to Genie Recommends that goes away.

    I believe they are trying to make more people aware of the Genie feature, even if you don't choose to use it right away. And the new search by "TV Shows" looks like it will give you more information on recommended shows that used to be on the main screen. Although the first time into it, it says "You Might Like is currently updating. Please check back in 1 hour." So I'm just assuming it will be similar to what used to be on the main "My DIRECTV" screen.

    And so far with this release, everything seems to be working well. No longer freezing on a black screen for extended periods of time, when you exit a recording.

    I don't think the potion in bold is an issue at this point, more like expected behavior.

    How many different series recordings can be set up on the genie's memory. The regular HD DVR used to be a limit of 50.

    The error message is still there but the action does take place.

    Sorry for the confusion of the two posts.

    I already had my first lock-up since the update.

    When I go to cancel a future recording from the to-do list, it is still saying that it has a partial recording that must be deleted.

    The last three software upgrades my box has hung at 0% download each time. I have to red button reboot and then the box will subsequently download the software OK within a few hours.

    It has happened again with this update and box is currently just rebooted.

    Got the 5d3 upgrade this A.M. and the issue, "pip locks up when you tune to the same channel in main window" is still there.
    Has been there in last couple of updated.
    Please DTV spend a little time on this and fix the problem.

    Despite the fact that I'm not sure why you would want to have the same channel in the PIP, I was curious. When I tried this, it did freeze when I selected a channel that was currently recording. When I swapped it, the PIP then worked fine, no freeze. Swap it back and it would freeze again. When I did the same test with a channel that wasn't recording, the PIP did not freeze at all.

    As a five-day user of the HR34, is there an obvious way to recognize whether the unit has received a software upgrade without delving into menus and looking at hexidecimal version numbers?

    I rebooted mine the first night, and it obviously performed a software update because it said it was doing so, but I don't know how it indicates this when initiating one on its own.

    Only real way is to turn off the front panel lights. The setting doesn't survive a reboot.

    Of course it doesn't necessarily mean it downloaded software, just that it rebooted, but if you have it on battery backup, the two generally go together.

    i could always tell because my recordings sort preference changes back to default (newest first) after a reboot. I prefer to sort oldest to newest. also, the 30 second skip used to default back to 30 sec slip but I think thats been fixed.
