I'm have 3 frequent issues with my HR34.
The first issue is the most significant is it has been happening with the current and the prior firmware national releases. That problem in the HR34 recorded programs are shown on the play lists of each of my three whole home DVRs (HR20, HR21 and HR22) but about once every two weeks the new HR34 recordings cannot be played on any of the other DVRs because when I attempt to play the listed recording the menu items on the left side of the screen (resume, play, done, etc) are not displayed. Thus, I see the program description but there is no way to play it. Once I reset the HR34 then recording made after the reset can be played on the other DVRs but those older recording still have the menu selections missing. Note the same problem recordings can be played normally on the HR34 itself.
The second issue also has been present for the last two firmware releases and that is the HR34 when watching a live program may radomly display the directv screen saver screen after a few minutes of watching the progam. Then will usually keep happening until I reset the HR34 and the problem usually will not happen again for perhaps 2 to 4 weeks.
Finally the 3rd problem seen new with this firmware release. Sometimes when in do a forward 30 second skip the playback first backs up perhaps 20 seconds before skipping ahead 30 seconds from that point.
