    Thanks you DirecTV for getting rid of the Great Black Fog Of Confusion! Looking forward to using Pandora and not having to hear the same ch856 New Age songs over and over again.

    After this update, my receiver has started complaining about my HDMI cable not being sufficient for the copy protection required. It wants me to use component cables.

    Anyone else having this problem, or should I call directv. Do I really need to switch to component? I'll change the HDMI when this TV dies.

    First post here, hoping this is in the right place. Love the site.

    I'm guessing you are seeing this on a different TV hooked up to the HR34 over something other than HDMI? And you are probably trying to watch a premium channel like HBO, Cinemax, etc.

    If both of these are the case then this is because of HDCP. The premium movie channels have started enforcing HDCP on their programming. When you have a TV hooked up over HDMI with the TV turned off it doesn't properly complete the HDCP handshake. When the DirecTV receiver doesn't get a proper HDCP handshake it shuts down all video ouput and puts up the screen telling you to switch to component video.

    No, I have an older Sony SXRD connected to the HR34 via HDMI w/audio directly to a reciever. It's only 1080i and pretty old as far as HDMI goes.

    The message only shows on the premium channels after a few hours. If i restart, it goes away for a while, but I think it comes back after I shut off the tv/dvr.

    I suppose I could revert to the component cable instead, but was hoping not to have to crawling around behind to rewire it.

    In the guide on some channels there is a white triangle flag in the top right corner... what does this mean or do?

    So far so good on the update, I like it. Very happy with the progress bar cloud fis and the 2 second option for the graphics.

    Can someone explain the following which were identified as updated and improved?

    So I got a wonderful pink screen when I turned it on today. A simple reset fixed it but it was annoying to have to reset it. Does this update fix on demand so that I can actually watch on demand programs?

    I had a program set to record at 11:04 last nite. It didn't record "due to a software update". I got the new update at 3:42 this morning. Is that normal to have something
    canceled approx 3 1/2 hrs before an update? No big deal, just wondering.

    So the "wonderful" HR34 decided to update right in the middle of a program we were watching. OK so it updated and at least came back on after a long time. Now the stupid thing starts the screensaver while we are watching a recorded program. Sound continues, picture is the dumb logo crawling over the screen. The screensaver should only be on if some person selects it to be on. No screensaver should be the default.

    same here - was watching Perception and I know it came on at least 3x while watching it. Didn't time it to see if it's consistently doing it or just random. Maybe I'll do that tonite.

    So after this "update" ... there is apparently a sequencing issue when powering up my Sony Brava and the HR34 ... I use a Logitech Harmony remote ... programmed for "Watch TV" which powers the TV and the DVR ... after this update ... that causes the TV to be PINK on all channels unless I manually (via remote) "power off" the HR34 after the TV is powered up and then power on the DVR ... I tried switching the sequence of power up ... but the SONY TV's power sequence is apparently too long and so the DVR gets power before the synch can take place ... didn't happen before this update ... anyone know a way around this annoyance? :mad:

    I definitely disagree here. Screensaver on should be the default. This particular behavior of it coming on when it's not paused does need fixed.

    Went to turn closed captioning off on a recording I was watching. The main banner went away, but the closed captioning selection box remained on the screen. Not sure how long it stayed on the screen as I had paused the recording and gotten up to go do something. I know it was longer than 30secs though.

    While listening to Pandora I went to change to another one of my music channels and it locked up saying please wait and all I could here then was whatever TV channel it was tuned to. A reboot got it going again. I haven't tried switching again in Pandorda yet to see if I can make fail.

    Same here. I have to go to other my other DVRs to see Rotten Tomatoes. It kind of defeats the purpose of having a "media server"
