    I'm getting the recording pop-up today on ESPN2 on Mike and Mike In The Morning. It's never been on ESPN2 before. It wasn't on ESPNU's Unite morning show early in the day but is now.

    I've spent a bit of time today trying to recreate this and I'm not seeing these pop ups at all. Do you leave your HR34 on or put it in standby? I put mine in standby so of course I don't always have a buffer. I'm wondering if I don't see them because of that. I'll wait a few hours and then change channels to ESPN, ESPN2, etc, and see what happens.

    Same here, it happened three times in the span of 5 minutes on the Denver CBS Affiliate last night between 7:50 PM and 8:00 PM. Eventually, changing to another channel and back stopped it from doing it.

    Earlier, in the same hour, there were several sound drop outs. Again, changing the channel fixed it.

    Also, the recording pop up happens randomly on any channel. Sometimes it shows up when gong to a new channel, sometimes it shows up when one checks on info.

    Another twist the Sportsinfo popup comes up on channels ,which may not have that service. BeIN Sports did last evening. Hit the red button; nothing.

    Looks like the new release with Genie is causing mischief as in Jinn (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jinn).

    Same here. Every time I get an update, I loose it and have to do the network set-up gain. This time I can not get it to work! restarted the HR34 and everything! My HR21 can see the HR34, but not vice versa.

    Any idea folks?

    I received a message saying that I needed to turn double play off on my 2nd tuner if I wanted to record a 2nd show. Hmmmmm, 5 tuners shouldn't necessitate that type of message when only 2 shows are recording. I subsequently tested recording 5 shows at once, and it did, but the messages with this release are annoying and confusing.

    Genie will occasionally use four tuners.

    My HR34 updated last night. I have 2TB & AM21 attached. New problems since update:

    1) no audio or video on ch242

    2) no sound on random channels. E.g., csi recording from last night has no sound but sap works (first time we ever used sap; it was hilarious).

    3) OTA channels a/v stutter; didn't before.

    4) while recording last resort there was no sound. Which is why I tried switching to OTA. Stopping recording didn't help.

    5) menus are now very very slow to respond.

    In an attempt to get things working again I turned OFF genie and restarted. Nothing got any better.

    Maybe it wasn't such a great idea to make such a big change during network premiere week. I missed a bunch of premieres tonight due to these problems.

    This update is bad. Genie seems like a feature most people won't use and the pop-up messages "to record this program" are VERY ANNOYING and completely unnecessary.

    The white triangles on so many channels in the guide are ugly and bring clutter to what was a simple, clean interface.

    DirecTV seems to be going the way of many software companies with "feature bloat". How about just refining the features most people use and getting those to be rock-solid?

    Agreed. As a former early TiVo adopter I never liked Tivo's version and always turned it off. Based on the activity in this thread it seems my problems are unique?

    I just checked my "to do" list on on 34. It showed a "Vegas" recording set to run on Sunday. Near as I could tell, it's not even on Sunday. So I hit the red button to cancel it, hit Select and up pops a window saying that it is recording now. Whats that all about?
    I have not turned Genie on, nor will I after reading of all the problems. I have put up with a lot of "boo boo's" with the 34 and now they add this "bonus". What are you thinking D??
    Seems like they keep piling on the problems to this DVR with out a care in the world about fixing problems first.

    I noticed the same thing.

    I just got DTV installed yesterday & my HR34 updated to this release immediately. But everything I set to record recorded, and everything that I watched had audio. I did enable the Dolby audio for shows that have Dolby. Menus/guides are responsive enough. Probably on-par with the Dish VIP722k that I just replaced. I'm glad I was able to disable the scroll feature in the HR34 guide. I'll have to check into the 30skip thing I see mentioned here...

    Gio12 i'm having the same exact problem with whole home and have been since i got my HR34 a few months ago my HR21 can see my HR34 but at times my 34 cant see my 21. A restart always fixes it. I normally lose ability to see my HR21 from my HR34 like once a week so doing the restart thing is beginning to get on my nerves........hate restarting for a little glitch like this.

    OK. I turned off Genie and some of things I was experiencing are no longer happening.

    That is, I have not seen the DirecTV screen saver.

    Various recording popups remain. Record program and go back to beginning of a program being recorded. Turning off Recording Tips does not work.

    I am suspecting the DirecTV screen saver issue may have been the result of Genie wanting all 5 tuners to use at once.

    The programming guide issue still exists.

    As for dropped audio issue, it has not happened again, since Genie has been turned off.

    Premieres - Is OK, appears to be fairly accurate.

    Top 20 - At least half are unbelievable being in the Top 20

    Kids - Never populated, so have no idea.

    Spanish - Didn't Look

    By Interest - Missing 'Sports', 'SciFi', 'Horror', 'Science', etc.

    By Show Type - Missing 'Series', 'Sport Events', Have no idea what 'Standup' is because it never populated.​

    Summary - Useless

    I'm curious at to why with all the glitches still needing to be ironed out with the HR34....why there wuld be such a huge type of software update like this including this brand new "service" (Genie)???

    Also why only the 34 and not other DVR's? B/c the 34 has more space?
