    I suppose that the change to the "small" progress bar is included in your "UI improvements" line but that is a HUGE item and one many of us have been waiting/asking for. Ithought that one would have gotten a line of its own....:D

    First update I've had to cause actual viewing problems ....

    Had to BRB reboot after HR34 was dead this AM >.. really took a long time then had periodic drop outs of sound/picture (to black) for a few seconds then back ... then after a few minutes rinse and repeat ... did a normal RESET ... seemed to be ok after that .... turned off. Came back, turned on ... PINK PINK PINK ... every channel ... did RESET ... seems to be OK for now ...

    So far ... not my favorite update! :nono:

    The HR34 needs to be "on" for the App to see it, at least for me.

    Hi all. Got the update this morning, and have not seen any new problems or issues.

    Pandora is a nice addition.

    I've heard you can watch TV and listen to Pandora at the same time.

    Is this possible?

    How does it work?

    I searched the forums for an answer, but came up empty.

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Edit:

    In the onscreen Help guide, it says:

    "You can also listen to Pandora while watching a program. While listening to Pandora, press EXIT on your remote and select "Yes, Play Pandora" to display video on screen."

    When I hit EXIT on Pandora, I get a box that says:

    "Leaving this screen will stop Pandora. Are you sure you want to stop Pandora".

    There are 2 options:
    1) Yes, Stop Pandora
    2) No, Play Pandora.

    If I click on Yes, Pandora closes.
    If I click on No, It reverts to the oriiginal Pandora screen.

    There is no "Yes, Play Pandora" option.

    Thoughts???

    I had audio and video dropouts until a RBR was done. I was thinking I had another HR34 with the HDMI port going out. How annoying.

    Yes, much better. Now if we could just get them to make it disappear when doing slo-mo or frame-by-frame that would be ideal. Don't know why but the things I'm trying to see in those modes is almost always down in the area of the progress bar!

    Same experience with the Pandora feature as cmasia.

    For my wish list-
    1. Not having to search 30 skip each time the receiver resets.
    2. Progress bar not showing during 30 second skip.

    Two improvements....

    Channel surfing is vastly improved. I can get "ahead" of the channel changes by a large amount and it always lands on the correct channel. Even if I'm going forward rapidly and then back up a channel, it gets it right. I think this is about as good as channel surfing can get on a DTV setup.

    At first I thought the same was not true for Guide surfing, but a reset resulted in a much better experience (this was the first update I didn't have weird fonts on the GUI and needed to reset, so I hadn't). No guide GUI redrawing issues when scrolling and it doesn't stutter and hang.

    Also, when you press the Info button on the remote, the banner comes up with the More Info button highlighted.

    Thanks, DTV!!

    The default behavior is to slip 30 seconds, which is more similar visually to a fast forward. An undocumented feature, is if you do a keyword search for 30skip, it changes the behavior of the button to skip forward 30 seconds. The bug is when you reboot the box, that setting has to be reentered.

    Technically the default isn't even 30 second slip at the moment. It doesn't work properly unless you search for 30SLIP.

    I'm noticing a quicker response on all commands and I really like the 2 second Banner Time option.

    Only when you keyword it. Until you do, the HMC acts like it has no default.

    There is an option. If you do a keyword search for 30SKIP it's 30 second skip you get. If you search for 30SLIP it's 30 second slip you get.
