    My new HR34 is hit or miss on conecting to the Internet, I have 4 other DVRs (HR20, HR22, & 2 HR23's) all 5 connected via SWM and using DECA for MRV with a wired CCK for Internet connectivity.

    All DVRs except the HR34 connect ok bringing up TV Apps fine. However the HR34 will fail on connecting to most of the TV Apps and does not have "wallpaper" for the VOD listings beginning on channel 125 like the others do. I have had SWM, DECA, CCK and the HR34 installed only since last Wednesday.

    I wonder if having more than 8 tuners on your SWM system is causing any problems.
    Since adding the HR34 brought the count up to 13.

    I see you had problems and got them resolved, Right?

    No I didn't have problems I was trying to learn the ropes because I didn't get a warm and fuzzy with the Directv tech. In the end I knew more about it than him but he got it all working.

    Now all dvrs still connect to the Internet fine but the HR34 is kinda hit or miss. I'm running a movie download test right now - so far so good but the TV Apps don't seem to work on the HR34 but do on the other 4 DVRs. Also the HR34 dosen't put the nice colorful graphics on the download channels at 125 like my other DVRs do. The HR34 says it's connected to the Internet and the movie download verifies that (about 10% now) but for some reason some of the stuff doesn't work. I was thinking about disconnecting the CCK and going straight through the HR34 for all Internet access but don't know if that would make a difference or not and if it did why would that be the case.

    When you experieince the problem again, verify your IP address for all of yur HR boxes and make sure that your router is properly assigning a uniqe ID.

    The HR34 is running the old software before the 1080p graphics upgrade. My 4 DVRs are running the new software. The HR34 is runing 0x4c9 while the others are running 0x57b. Have no idea how to get the new HR34 up to the same software version my others are on since I have already gone through the upgrade process all one night back in mid December on the other DVRs. Also don't know if that is the problem since I don't remember having this problem before my old DVRs were upgraded.

    The Weather TV App works on the HR34 but the one called Scoreguide won't work on the HR34 but does on the others. It gets a "not available" message. Getting this same message on many others that work on all the other DVRs but not the HR34. Also some of the graphics on the TV Apps are missing on the HR34 such as on Social TV and Flickr. Weird stuff.

    As I suggested in the other thread, reset your network settings and then Connect Now.

    Nope didn't help. Strange that it will connect to some of the TV Apps and won't others while my HR23's and others will connect to all without a problem.

    How's the HR34 connected to the Internet? Via the DECA network or it's Ethernet Port?

    Is using the HR34 instead of the CCK the recommended setup?

    It is a supported method, if that helps.
