    Some have the thought that every new version introduces more bugs.

    You don't like bugs? No bugs equal no mankind.

    Actually. except for the occasionally slow remote response, my HR34 has been behaving nicely since it got 0x08C2.

    Of course not every Genie receiver have issues related to software, I haven't experienced problems with the HR44(Yet)

    But this new software is to address issues with HR34's with previous SW or current, since it's not on NR yet.

    But it might fix one thing and break another... will see

    Performance issues can be caused by a lot of things. Now the Start Over situation, that was definitely a bug.

    I was one who was committed to keeping my 34 through the many issues even when I was told by many on these boards that the only fix was to replace it with a 44. The video/audio freezing exclusively on NBC shows started for me in Feb. after that month's software release. It took the next 2 software releases to fix that. Then the auto delete bug appeared and the software release to fix that brought back the freezing that was now on several other networks as well as the overall slowing of most functions, bringing up the guide, changing channels, etc. I had been arguing with several on here that the problem wasn't the 34 but the software, which may or may not be true but I finally got tired of the issues. Especially after talking to several DTV installers who have been in my neighborhood setting up new customers over the last several months who all told me they were aware of those issues and all their 34s had been replaced and they only had 44s to install.

    From reading many posts on here by others who have also determined that installers in their area also now have only 44s, it appears obvious that the 34 is slated for extinction unless you're unlucky enough to have a refurb forced upon you. But otherwise I think DTV is abandoning the 34 but still trying to fix the remaining ones with all these software releases. There have been more of these in the first 6 months of this year for the genies than I can ever remember in any other year. The problem is what they fix for one now becomes a problem for the rest. My 44 has been great since its install, I don't need another release. They should just quit trying to fix the 34s and replace them all and just be done with it.
