Still after 5 days extra menu has not populated...
The screen saver is a big pain. Needs to be turn off.
Came home at lunch today and had the Pink Screen when i turned on the TV. I tried switching inputs on both the tv and the avr and nothing helped. Tried to turn off the HR34 and nothing happened. Had to perform a hard reset to get back up and running. Didn't have time to check recordings from the morning to determine if it was a problem with the box or inputs. First real issue i have had.
I am also getting the screen saver coming on during recorded show. Turning off power saver doesn't do anything.
Ours is doing the Whole Home drop also, as well as the screensaver problem. PLEASE give me the SD GUI.
I did a menu restart and it stopped doing that for me.
AHHHH The VOD skipping bug is still there and what sucks is I don't have another DVR to download the program to so I have to continue to deal with this awful bug. :nono2:
Just wanted to feedback a thankyou! This works for me! I did need a 10 second pause before the poweron but at least my one button "WATCHTV" on my Harmony remote (650) is working without the annoying PINK screen problem.
One item that I have noticed in this release is that the little triangles in the upper and lower right of a scrollable list that extend beyond a single screen are missing. Also, as has been noted elsewhere autocorrect does not work as it does with all the rest of the DVRs.
Occasionally when tuning to a new channel, I receive the banner but no audio, no video, and no OSD.
It remains this way until I direct tune to the same channel that I am on which restores the audio and video.
Only on my HR34 this started occuring.
I have a series set to record "BOTH repeats and new" and to Keep at Most 10 shows and to keep until "DISK IS FULL".
It now stops recording the show when there are 10 shows on the DVR.
Previously it would delete the oldest and keep recording new shows.
Very Annoying that I had to change it to Keep All when I will have to delete half of them manually...
When I see a movie in the guide for next week; and click View Upcoming, it no longer shows viewings before where I am in the Guide.
So I can't record an earlier showing unless I go into "SEARCH" and find the title and then it lists all the showings.
The "VIEW UPCOMING" has always before shown any previous showings available in the Guide, not just the ones in the future of where I was in the Guide.
Example: Today is Monday, I am looking at Friday's Guide and see a movie I want to Record and want to see if it is playing between today & Friday. The View Upcoming doesn't show them anymore, I have to exit to Search menu and search for the movie.
HDMI handoff has gotten better and was able to go back to Native On and not have the TV give me Audio with No Video.
Turned my HR34 on yesterday morning and got nothing but the dreaded pink screen. Totally unresponsive to commands from the remote. Had to do an RBR. During the reboot the pink screen came up again for awhile and then it went black with the little box popping up telling me no hdmi connection. Eventually it went through it's gyrations and went back to normal.
I don't know what D* did with this latest update, but it has made my particular HR34 perform much worse than before. I was one of the fortunate ones that had had no problems with his HR34 since receiving it! Oh well.
Still get a garbled Guide screen
I'm still getting the "program starts approx. 30 seconds before the guide changes over". Getting that since I acquired the 34 in Feb. Is there something to do to fix it or will it
take a software change??
0x057C: In spite of the good things, my particular HR34 still has these problems: 1. Backspacing still doesn't work properly. IN FFWD I press PLAY and most of the time the 34 does not backspace the appropriate number of seconds at all. When it does backspace, it either backspaces not enough or way too much. Once I pressed PLAY while in FFWD speed setting 4 and the DVR backspaced over a minute. My HR23 and HR24 backspace the appropriate number of seconds for each speed setting every time. C'mon DTV, just copy that code. 2. Even worse, sometimes when I am in FFWD and I press PLAY, nothing happens. The DVR continues to FFWD until I press PLAY about 5 times. RF mode, new batteries. 3. Sometimes when I use FFWD to get to the end of a recorded video, the SAVE/DELETE window does not appear. 4. Sometimes when I press FFWD, I get a freeze frame. Then about 2 or 3 seconds later the picture fast forwards, but not from the point of the original freeze frame. It starts the FFWD a few seconds later. 5. My MANUAL RECORD still starts 30 seconds late and ends thirty seconds late. I set all three of my receivers to MANUAL RECORD at the same time and the HR23 and HR24 started and ended properly, but the HR34 was 30 seconds late starting and stopping. 6. My 0x057C HR34 still refuses to record partials less than 10 to 20 seconds. However, some of the short partials will eventually play back if I let them sit for a while (incubate) or if I record something after them. Weird. 7. This is new: sometimes when I change change channels or start a recording, the bottom 7/8ths of the screen is suddenly pure white. 8. Also new: when I am scrolling through a LIST of recordings or scrolling through a SMART SEARCH result, the little UP/DOWN arrows aren't there any more. I liked them. All in all, 0x057C is very disappointing to me. I personally find the the 0x057C HR34 to be extremely sluggish to remote control commands, and then there's the times when the 34 doesn't do anything at all to a remote command. Then sometimes when you have to press the remote control twice get the HR34 to respond, it somehow buffered the first command that it didn't respond to, and then it does twice of what you wanted it to do. My 1977 Apple II was an infinitely better machine than this junk DTV is defrauding the American public with. My opinion. Thanks.
Can you explain what it is you're reporting?
When a program starts actually showing on the TV, I immediately click the guide button and the guide is still on the previous program. Once approx. 30 seconds have passed the
guide actually moves forward and reflects the current program (hope this makes sense).
There's a white slash at the top of the guide that shows where you are in time, it moves every minute. The guide itself only moves every 30 minutes. If the station/network you are watching starts their show at say 9:59:57, instead of 10:00, the guide will still be showing the 9:30 to 10:00 "chunk" when that show starts. Same goes for shows that start at times like 10:01, 10:15, 10:21, etc.
The damn thing again canceled two things I had set to record as a series record all that were not a repeat. In the history, for both it says:
This episode was canceled because it did not match your show type settings or the program has already been recorded. (13)
My HR34 is also droping off of my Whole Home network fairly consistantly. Menu reset brings it back.
