    Like someone mentioned upthread, Directv2PC isn't showing anything that's in a folder.

    I am missing all icons on the Extras menu. No caller ID, no nothing. I did 2 resets and a a forced software download. No change. Called tech support and they were stumped. Supposedly bumped me up to next level and said I would get a call in the next couple of days.....who knows? I also have the white triangles caseyf5 is reporting (in my guide). Funny, most are on Viacom channels. Maybe I am supposed to feel special, that I got them back:grin: So far, no joy, on the new update.

    Wonder if any of these problems connect to when the 34 was made (ie did the maker have a "bad month")??

    Same here. EVERY TIME.

    I had my Harmony configured to leave the DVR on all the time so that won't help.

    I found that the power timing on the DVR device in the Harmony setup does NOTHING. I set it all the way up to 10000ms and it still turned it on right away (I have an 880).

    My current hack is to manually add a sequence to the end of the appropriate actions to power the DVR off, wait a few seconds, and power it on again.

    Normally that wouldn't be too kind to hardware but these things don't really shut off anyway. If it wasn't for losing recordings and series setup I kinda wish this frequent power cycling would toast the DVR so it costs DTV money :)

    One thing that is definitely not HDCP compliant is the HR34 software.

    Unbelievable that this crap would ever be released. Apparently there is NO quality control at DTV.

    Yes, I tried both of those solutions as well with no success. See my post about 6 back. I added a custom sequence to my activity to pause for 5 seconds and then issue the power on. I'm not sure all harmony remotes support this but if yours does it's been a very effective solution for me so far.

    I agree. The slo-mo sucks. DTV should have used a different key to get slo-mo like a double hit on the play button or something else..

    I would agree...the highest FF is basically useless as it skips back almost 90 seconds...

    I'm having the same issue with the Extras being blank. Tried 2 menu resets & nothing. Hopefully they will be pushed to the HR34 soon...

    +1 to the screensaver issue. My 2 year old keeps screaming every few minutes because his show is vanishing off the screen for no reason

    Just to report the recent problems I am having since this software upgrade. This has happen 3 times in the last week. It has all occurred when I am watching a show and select the Menue/To Do List/Series Manager or something on the Menue screen. The screen freezes. I can not exit out or select anything on the menue. I can not turn off the DIRECTV receiver with the remote OR manually at the box. I pushed the red reset button and it shut off twice but once I had to unplug the receiver. Everything eventually comes back, except I have lost a portion of what may have been recording.

    Is this something to do with the software upgrade or is it a more serious problem?
    I have the protection plan, should I call now or wait to see if it happen again. Any other suggestions?

    Rotten Tomatoes movie ratings are back. Yeah!

    Just noticed that the 4-hour Energy Saving feature appears to shut off Pandora if it was left running when the TV (i.e. remote usage) is shut off. We have music on all day, usually ch856, but recently started using Pandora Ambient, which seems to keep switching back to 856 in the afternoon.

    This has now happened to us twice in the last hour, on two different recorded programs. Started this afternoon. Recorded programs watched this morning, and since the update did not have this happen. Appears after watching the program without touching a key for 5 minutes. Very annoying.

    Did a soft reboot and it may have fixed it. Need more testing to confirm.

    Has anyone gotten their Extras menu to populate?

    Is anyone have an issue where their HMC drops off the Whole Home seemingly without warning then seems to come back? It appears to be my only box (of 4) that is doing this. The problem is also fairly recent.

    (I should add that I'm having the "screensaver problem" too.)

    The box is on the released version of the software, nothing funky.

    For the past two days one of four shows didn't record in my series manager. I checked the history and it said canceled and other three recorded. No one in my house canceled this as the HR 34 did that on its own. I deleted series and restarted a new recording. I also moved it up on the priority list in the series manager. That was strange for it to cancel a show suddenly.

    Got the same problem. (Not with the screensaver . . . my 2 year old screams every few minutes and the TV's not even on.)

    Did it give any reason for the cancellation?

    No, it doesn't say why it is canceled. Today it recorded after I deleted the series and then re-recorded the series again. I also moved it up on the priority list so it wasn't last place on the series manager. However, there are no other shows recording at the same time. Weird.
