    My wife tried to turn the HR34 (only had a couple of months) on this morning and it would not do anything. I uplugged it, waited and then plugged it back in. Started up fine. My wife mentioned that she had a hard time getting it to turn off last night. Is this a known issue, sign of somnething going bad or just one of those glitches that computer based hardware gets every now and then?

    I'd say just a glitch. I've not seen any Hr34s go DOA yet unless a significant power surge was involved. If it's in a power strip, take it out and plug it directly into the wall however.

    Installing these beasts everyday, I have had my fair share of HR34 come DOA. But I agree, this is a probably a glitch.
