HR 34 Picture Too Big

Also check the aspect ratio on the HR34, did it get reset to 4:3?
I know the HR24 is OK per your message but that could be an HDMI signal issue.
If all else fails reboot the HR and even your TV by removing the power plug for a few minutes.

Can you swap Component and HDMI inputs on the HR34/24?

To swap the cables, I'd have to disconnect the current HDMI for the HR24 (It is connected to two TV's on either side of a double fireplace & the cables run through the wall). It can be done, though, & I might play around with them later especially if the pink screen issue continues.

Swap the other ends of them between the 2 receivers. See if the problem swaps receivers.
If it does, you have a bad cable or connection on the TV.
The pink screen and no sound, etc. is usually an HDMI problem. It could be the cable, the connection on either end or the software for the HDMI in the receiver.

Here is a WAG on my part. It is possible that the EXIT key was held down on your remote which puts the HR into SD(standard definition) mode. To return to HD, press and hold the EXIT key for a few seconds. Again it's just a guess......
I thought that too until I read in the first post they cycled through the resolutions. But never hurts to suggest everything.

I checked the TV settings & they were set to Wide: Full. I set it to Wide: Full Pixel & that seems to have worked for now.
Good! Does the TV not have a native setting? Or is it "Wide" vs. "Standard"?

I thought about that but the HR24 connected to the same TV was fine so I ruled it out. I don't know if the TV can do different resolutions for different connections (the HR24 is connected through component). I'll try that, though.
Yes, it can do different resolutions, aspect ratios, picture settings, etc. per input. That is why your HR24 was still fine. It appears that you fixed the issue, so that's awesome!
FYI, a pink screen usually shows up when a display is "thinking" its getting an RGBHV signal and is actually receiving a YCbCr component signal. The display usually auto detects eventually and the normal image returns but sometimes it gets confused and is stuck but as others have mentioned a simple reset or switching inputs should do the trick.
