So far here is what I am not liking about the HR34
1. The freezing of the recording playback with no cure
2. The pausing of a show and then when you come back to play it won't. Only fix is the change channel but that deletes the buffer of that show
3. Very slow and buggy software
4. While watching a show, the box just locks up
5. And my personal biggest irritant....the backup function during fast-forward is horrible. My HR24 has a beautiful alogrithm that regardless of level of search (1,2,3,4) when you hit play it would backup perfectly. The HR34 either backs up extremely far or fails to backup at all.
So tonight we are watching the Survivor finale. We like to DVR about everything so we can FFD through commercials. Well tonight, we are 1.5 hours into the 2 hour finale and right before the final tribal council to see who wins and the playback just freezes. The timer at the bottom shows it is still playing but the show is stuck on a single frame. So, I fast forward. Nothing. I stop and start over and FFD to that spot and it still freezes. There is also a reunion show right after so we decided to fire that up from our playlist. We'd possibly see who won not knowing if they read the votes yet but that won't play. Not only will it not play, but the image on the screen when we select play is the a paused image from whatever channel the box was on last. No happy at all.
The box is a HR34. I just red buttoned it to see if that would fix it. Nope. Same thing. Heading to bed and would really like to see the end of Survivor. Really unhappy with the box. It's been buggy and nowhere near as smooth as my HR24 since we got it. Is this something that anybody can comment on from experience or knowledge about it? I really like D* and have for quite some time but this is really bad when a box this new acts so erratic. Something happened obviously and fried everything from that point forward.
Not sure if I am just venting or looking for answers so thank you for any replies and understanding
Heading to bed..........
