Same here , nothing but drop outs everytime I VOD with my HR 34, No recording issues. I decided, that if I want to VOD, i need to use my HR23, but this never has or had one Issue with on demand Playback. This is 100% an HR 34 issue!!!!! Stop trying to make it sound all the time like its not the receiver! Also any Pandora songs that are played on the HR 34 are Alos cut short at the end of the song. OK well, my computer, and tablets never do this, nor does my cell phone. You guys going tell us this isn't a receiver issue either? Cut the crap with this fanboy stuff, and lets get these issues fixed.
