    Ok thanks but I am in good shape right now and understand what you are saying about the outputs

    I also deliver the HR34's output to my television via HDMI, and then go from the television to a sound bar via optical cable. That way the sound bar obviously plays whatever is currently on screen (satellite, semi-retired TiVo, DVD).

    I just recently hooked the sound bar directly to the HR34 via a coax, in addition to the optical connection to the television. (My sound bar accepts both.) This enables my wife to enjoy music from the Sonic Tap channels without needing the television to be on. Just switch the bar from optical to coaxial, wake up the HR34 if necessary, type the channel number "in the blind" and enjoy.

    It might stay on coaxial for a couple of days at a time as it only needs to be switched back to optical if we want to listen to something not originating at the HR34.

    HR34 does not have optical sound output. Only digital or analog.

    Optical is digital too so for charities sake, the HR34 will pass digital audio via hdmi or coaxial digital connections only. It does not have an optical (toslink) connection.

    My HR34 keeps rebooting itself every half hour on its own. Is anyone else having this problem with the 0x5d3 firmware.

    I am also having consistant dropped MRV connections.

    I have all running HDMI. Genie HDMI to AVR, to HDMI to TV....seems to be once in awhile some handshake issues, yet not bad... My HR24 same setup was fine. The Genie has some bugs in it that's for sure. Hope they get them all fixed soon before my head explodes.

    Matt, i did have a lock up which caused a reboot, yet never just occurred without an issue first.

    There is definitely something wrong with the HDMI handshake from the HR34 -> Yamaha AVR. I only ever lose the handshake while the source is my HR34. It's really annoying to have to power cycle the DVR in the middle of a recorded show :mad:

    Winters,...
    Of course it's annoying.

    You could go HR34-> TV, and then TV-> AVR for audio. Added benefit: you don't have to always have the AVR on.

    I have the RX-A3010. It used to happen with my RX-A1010 also.

    Not a solution for me. I have 1 HDMI cable running inside my wall to my TV, and of course the AVR switches sources. Besides, who would want to listen to little TV speakers vs. my other 7 reference speakers? :rolleyes:

    Just was told by a friend that his screensaver is kicking in on live TV while watching the news.

    Still having continual slowdown issues, 20 to 30 seconds for the Genie to recognize the remote commands. And while traveling and trying to watch something via Slingbox on my laptop or phone, the slow commands are even more excruciating. A reset resolves it, but I'm having to do this is more often.

    Try tuning to channel one for one minute and see if your unit speeds up some afterward.

    That's interesting, haven't seen that one before. What is that supposed to do?

    I, too, have this problem with my Yamaha RX-V1800.

    Annoying but not disruptive. I just power down the system for a moment. You don't have to do a reboot.

    Long story, but it might help clear out the interactive stuff that loads on interactive channels that might be causing slow down for some people sometimes...

    I continue to have dvr scheduler problems with the hr34. Recordings via scheduler always fail to record anything. Someone here said turn off genie, but that didn't help. Weeks ago the CSR told me they had a fix they would push to my system but of course that was bs and nothing happened.
