    Yup, it's a known issue.

    Your welcome. I just put a "Light Dim" (lightdims.com) over the power light on my AM21, and other devices, and don't worry about it.

    Thanks for posting that. I was always under the impression that the HRxx boxes tended to ignore/delay IR commands for some reason. My HR34 exhibits far too much response lag when I press buttons on my IR remote (but fortunately not "minutes" like others are experiencing). I know that certain home theater hardware has firmware code set to ignore IR commands if they receive too many incorrect/invalid/not applicable codes within a certain time span-- it makes me wonder if the HRxx's are locking is out for a few milliseconds for each button press...

    It almost makes me want to replace my Harmony One with the Harmony 900... I just wish the price wasn't so steep.

    It's worth it. I love my 900.

    I decided to take a look at the reviews on the 900, and it seems that a lot of people have issues with it. It can't do sequences? Why would Logitech leave that out... strange... Anyway-- how well does it function with your HR34? Any noticeable difference from using IR?

    Sequences being left out are a bummer but I've learned to live without them.

    Mine works great with my home theater setup, which includes my HR34. I'm not sure what issues others have but I haven't run into any issues. Keypress entry is faster than with the DirecTV supplied remote but we're not talking leaps and bounds faster, just enough that you do notice a slight difference in speed. The biggest difference between the 900 and using the DirecTV remote is not having to make sure the remote is aimed at the HR34 since the 900 uses RF to communicate with IR Blasters.

    I get that once or twice a week. I often record on all five tuners, and it has happened when I powered up the HR-34 while all 5 are recording.

    Turned on the HR34 yesterday, went to the guide and it locked up. Would not reposnd to the remote (RF) but the live feed was still working in the preview box. Had to RBR. Response to the remote is now slow many times with it taking 5 or 6 seconds to respond to the remote.

    Do you have full guide data?

    It appeared to at the time but I couldn't scroll through the guide to see. I now have full guide data and it is still slow, sometimes it responds just fine, other times there is a few seconds delay for a key press.

    Every Monday for the past month or so the receiver is not taping my wifes soaps and I get in trouble.

    Is there anyway to fix this??? Why doesn't it happen any other days?

    What does history say is the reason they are not recording?

    It says and I quote

    All 3 of them say the same exact thing!!! But why would they say that when they are new episodes and season pass is set to record all.

    I left D*TV a year ago for a cox bundle. Cox last week dropped about a dozen channels from cable card (tivo) customers like me.
    I dropped them, called D*TV they just installed the HR34, I paired it with an am-21 and I'm in heaven.
    It's great to be back.
