    I have an HR44 with a C41 client and several times now I've been fast forwarding through commercials and the fast forward freezes and I have to hit play and "play through" the freeze zone. It doesn't happen enough to know if it's shows, or device. But I am usually using the C41 when it happens. it's quite annoying because 1, it stops fast forward, and 2 coming out of the fast forward rewinds several seconds (10?) and I have to watch these things called commercials

    Any suggestions?

    My HR34/700 is acting similarly. When I hit FF through an advertisement and then play the video portion freezes. The audio portion of the recorded program continues as the video portion remains frozen. There is no work around (that I know). DirecTV is sending me a new unit. It was only a month or so ago that I lost all my recordings on the same unit. Trying to remember all the preset programming for record is not much fun either. Here I go again.......

    well, this isn't such a big problem that I want to replace my HR44 immediately, but if it continues I might ask for a replacement. But I would still love to see a way to transfer my recordings somewhere so when the replacement arrives I can transfer them to the new HR

    There is no way to transfer recordings from one receiver to another. If you replace your HR44, all recordings will be lost.

    Yes, only when I'm using FF. It does not get hung up during play.

    I know that. Hoping that one day that DirecTV will create a way to transfer recordings. Probably something based on some sort of user account and cloud support.

    Right now I can't say. We basically use the C41 as the primary TV and the HR44 is in the basement and gets used occasionally, and usually for live TV (sports, movies) I'll keep an eye on it.

    Current NR as far as I can tell, will check later today

    Press GUIDE and ARROW RIGHT at the same time on the front panel of the HR44

    those are good values. It might just be a defective client
