I am wondering if I have a setting wrong. When we go to sleep at night we place the HR34 on local PBS with the intention of watching kids shows in the morning and being able to rewind as soon as we power up. In the past I would always have the live buffer and was able to rewind roughly 2 hours.

Now I have no live buffer every morning.

Any thoughts?

Set it to record, series link.

(Don't mean to be flip, but until the buffer gets straightened out, that's what I'd do.)

I've had the same issue for quite a while. I just leave my HR34 on all the time, then you have a buffer in the morning. If the panel is too bright, you can dim it. Its been said that this is not an issue, its the way the HR34 works. Although its strange that it sometimes it will buffer with it off and other times it won't.

I've noticed a quirk with my 34. It's fairly new, but I don't think I've noticed it until the latest software release.

When I'm in the "to do" menu, and select a future recording to be canceled, it tells me the program is currently being recorded, and do I want to cancel. It then asks to keep it or delete it. This occurs even if the recording is days away.

I'm seeing the same thing and others have reported it as well. I'm pretty sure this is an across the board thing where we're all experiencing it.

nsykes, there is uncertainty as to whether or not there should be a live buffer when the HR34 is turned off. Some people say they intermittently have one which proves there should be one. Others who have never seen a live buffer on their HR34 are not so sure.

Until the matter is definitively resolved, the work-around that RACJ2 gave you is the best bet.

I leave mine on all the time and occasionally when I try and rewind back into the buffer it freezes up and I have to change the channel to restore it to live.

That's why I suggest making a Series Link for anything you're (Not you, you!) interested in that might be a regular.

Having a backlog of kids' cartoons is probably a good idea anyhow.

Is anyone else still having HDMI issues with the HR34?


Yes not as bad or as frequent, but it is still there. A quick power off and on of the HR34 resolves it.

Was doing my own mini-marathon of Vegas last night with the TV buffering the NBC affilliate. After each episode, I had a buffer 90mins behind live - up until the last one when the buffer was dumped and I was back to live. So, it's definitely intermittent.

Me too. TV goes black sometimes. Obviously has something to do with the HDMI handshake. Not sure if it's the TV, HR34, or Yamaha A3010. I know the DTV boxes have had issues handshaking with Yamaha and Denons, and it appears this may still be true. :nono2:

Power cycling the Yamaha or HR34 corrects it-- that is, until it happens again.

I have exactly the same issue with all three of my RVUs unable to re-establish a connection to the HR34 after being powered off/on. HR34 reboot resolves the issue, until next TV power cycle. VERY frustrating. RVU is great, if only it WORKED!!

Anyone else seeing this issue/have a solution?

Just leave the unit on, turn off the TV. Not elegant, but the box in "On" burns just a watt or two more than "Off".

I wish it was that easy. The problem occurs after powering off the TV, not the HR34. The RVU TV does not re-connect after being powered off, and only re-booting the HR34 fixes the issue.

Posting this for a friend as this is the second time this week this has happened to him. He has Survivor set to record, and in the guide it has the record icon, but it wasn't actually recording.

History gives reason as Canceled because it does not match your show type settings or the program has already been recorded. (13)

This also happened with Mythbusters Sunday. I don't watch Survivor, but mine recorded Mythbusters fine.

He also had the screensaver come up while watching.

Have had the HR34 for only two months.

Successfully recorded Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace via SL for several weeks.

After 5c2 update recording above was cancelled becaust it didn't natch criteria listed in SL, or whatever.

So, I deleted the SL and reset another via the menu.
Last Sunday the HR34 recorded TWO versions of the Fox New Sunday. Same channel and everything. Looked and only one SL shows up in Series Manager.

Was in the guide last night and used Green to jump ahead 12 hours. A few seconds later I hit Green again. Nothing happened.

Worse, all remote operations stopped working. Couldn't do anything - not even turn off. I didn't time it but was probably around 5 minutes.

I was about to pull the plug when it came back.

I've experienced this at times. Not many, and it has happened with other functions. It is like the HR has had a brain fart. I've learned patience with it though. It seems in a few minutes it comes back to normal.....:confused:

Just curious before I had a HR34 if I was watching live tv then went to watch a recorded program............finished, then back to live tv on that same channel there was always live buffer there. Now when I switch from live tv channel to watch something recorded on the HR34........finish then delete recording and go back to the same channel I was watching before there is no buffer. Is this something that is just how the HR34 operates.... or a glitch?
