We were watching something recorded on the HR34 the other night and right as another program was finishing taping, we started getting (not pixelating) video noise while watching it. Rewinding gave us the same issue. We exited out and came back in after the recording light was off and it was fine. Even the part we had issues with.

Has this been reported?

Known problem. Apparently has to do with HDCP (copy protection). Turn off HR or TV and then on again and it will clear up - for awhile.

But, then it might have to do with the quality of tape that was being used! :D
DirecTV since '96, Waivers for ABC, CBS, NBC, & Fox, HR23-700 & HR24-500/AM21, using ethernet based MRV.

Does the HR34 take VHS or Beta tape?

It did download late last week.
The issue seemed to happen during True Blood the last several weeks. We did not have the occurrance this week so fingers crossed.

We are glad because I was having a problem finding any tape to replace in the DVR :D
