Not smart enough to know what "Menu Reset" means but I pushed the red button near the card and it made no difference.

This is equivalent, IMO, to the bloatware on cellphones and why I run CM versions.

Booooooooo DTV :(

My Whole Home issues persist. It's amazingly frustrating that for 4 straight firmware updates now , my HR34 cannot see my HR24 boxes and vice versa. WH was fine when I got the HR34 for many months, until it wasn't. Super super annoyed ...

It is very annoying and thinking of dropping the WH system now that I have Genie. My play list seems to come and go and was never a problem up until a few weeks back

Has anybody had any picture quality issues with their HR34 being hooked up to an AM21 and over the air antenna? I got the HR34 back in November. I have a Panasonic TC-P65VT50 plasma, that was fully calibrated and an Integra 40.4 receiver. My HR34 runs through the Integra receiver via HDMI and then out to the tv. The video processing ability of the Integra is turned off and I have the Native setting on the HR34 set to on. When I first got the HR34, the picture was nothing short of stunning. About a month later, I received the AM21 with a Solid State "blade" indoor OTA. I hooked it up to the HR34 without issue and picked up 43 local stations. Everything seemed fine until a few days later when I noticed alot of "posterization" when watching Directv programming. Whenver there is a solid background, it looks like water color paint that was smeared on a page. If it's a really dark background the effect is especially bad. I was watching Persons of Interest on CBS and the posterization on the black background from a night scene was awful. I've seen it on other shows and stations and even on some On Demand recordings. Some shows or stations are worse than others. My satellite strength is in the mid to upper 90's with several 100's on almost all the transponders. I have racked my brain trying to figure out this issue, since it's something I have only noticed after installing the AM21 and OTA. Is it possible that the AM21 and OTA is causing some sort of issue with the picture quality on the HR34? Before I uninstall anything, I was wondering if anyone else had this issue.

Are you still on firmware version 0x05C2? There's been an update since then.

I have an AM21 connected to a HR34 and I haven't noticed the issues you mention. If you think it's the AM21 just do a reset via the menu and when the box starts to reboot pull the power cord out of the AM21, then disconnect the USB cable from the HR34 the route the power cord to the HR34 and let it restart. Then see if the problem continues or not.

See post My Setup for configuration info.
