This is the official Issues and Discussion thread for HR34, version 0x0582

Release notes: http://www.dbstalk.c...ad.php?t=208152

We ask that you keep polite and focused within this thread, and post as much detail as possible. If your receiver is set up for network issue reporting, please post the key generated by the receiver.

Being part of the DBSTalk community means working together to help each other document issues and come up with solutions. While everyone gets upset from time to time, this is not the appropriate place for vents or rants. All off-topic posts and discussion will be deleted.

When I powered on my HR-34 this morning after the software update last night, my tv was showing no signal from the hdmi source at the receiver. Then I started seeing flashes of video and audio appear, but no solid signal. I did a hard reset, and got the pink screen for the first time upon reboot. Since then I have seen short lapses of audio/video.

None of these problems occurred on my system prior to last night's release.

My box seems to have froze at 0% download. Suggestions as to what I came do. Is it safe to do a red button reset?

Yes, you can RBR at 0% or wait for it to timeout on its own and reboot.

My HR34 no longer has the screensaver coming on during playback of recordings after receiving the 0x0582 update.

Before I waste any more of my life on this hunk of junk, can anyone report if either of the following might be fixed:

1) People whose HMC has been disappearing from the Whole Home network?

2) People who have gotten glitchy recordings?

Is this a slow roll out because I have not received it.

I would hope so, as I've had it for a while and haven't had the problems you posted in the other thread.

I've only seen that once or twice.

What are your settings [native, resolutions, etc.]?

It is not a roll out. It is the NR and can be upgraded to now.

I am still experiencing the sound going off occasional when changing channels, or switching from a recorded to a live program. Have to turn the HR34 off and on the get the sound back.

Also for the first time I have seen the distortion in the column alignment in the Guide.

This release is even worse than the last one. Now I'm getting the following:

1) Getting signal errors on some channels, which requires a reboot. Fixes for a few hours, then seems to pop back up.

2) Losing whole house dvr. Other boxes can't see hr34.

3) When entering channel number, at times it does not go to channel. It will either stay on current channel, or end up on a channel completely black.

I'd much rather go back to the release before pandora and all that crap.

Sadly, the post a bit above this one suggests the problems are not solved.

Clearly, they don't affect everyone and clearly I need to demand a box swap out.

What concerns me is I don't believe swapping the box is going to achieve anything.

Got mine installed yesterday and everything works fine. Just a little sluggish when FF, other than that im loving this unit. The tech left his card just in case and said he rarely installs the H34's and asked me if i asked Directv to sell me the unit for just $100 installed.In fact he said mine was only the second one that he has installed within the last 4 months! Total time took about 20 minutes. The guy REALLY knew his stuff. Even though my internet was locked he figured a way to bypass that so i could still use ALL of the in demand features! Very impressed indeed....
