So I've had the HR34 since it was released and I've patiently lived through all its quirks but this is a problem. I had it set to record monday night football this week which starts at 8pm. I got home from work at 9pm, turned on the tv and the game was on live and it was recording as it was supposed to. I went to list and selected play and all I got was a screenshot of the live game I had just left. I could fast forward and rewind as much as I wanted and the screen never changed. I went back to the live game and it was fine but if I tried to rewind it wouldn't. I went to the list and selected other recordings and they all played perfectly. I've had this happen once before but I attributed it to signal loss during a storm but this evening was clear.

Anyone else experience this or have any opinions on the matter. I want to get it figured out before the season starts! By the way the HR34 has been working great since the latest updates and this is really the only issue I have. Thanks!

I have been having this problem too. :( I can recreate it almost daily. I record an early morning news show, and darn near EVERY DAY, it won't play! It's just like you said... when you select the recorded show, you get a still shot of what was on the live feed when you hit 'play'. and the progress bar is going, and going, and going. It looks like it's fast forwarding all the time, but the icon changes when you attempt to ff or rew, giving the impression that it's working. If you 'play' it still shows that still image, and never changes! I haven't found a solution to it yet.... have you?

If you go here and report your findings and details, it's likely that someone at Directv will take notice.
