I've posted about this before:
1. With 0x05d4, just as with previous releases, if I manually tune to a station that is not on my favorites list and then tune to another station that is, if I then hit the PREV button to go back to the "non-favorites" channel, the HR34 does not go there. Instead it goes to the top listed channel on the LAST FOUR list which, for some reason, is not the non-favorite channel I was just tuned to. Somehow the LAST FOUR list does not store and list channels that are not on my (I say my because someone will say they don't have this problem) favorites list. My HR24 and 23 don't have this bug.
2. With 0x05d4, just as with previous releases, if I try to record a short partial, say 20 seconds or less, oftentimes when I try to play that partial back I only get a black screen. I did a side-by-side test this morning with my HR34 and HR24 recording the exact same 20 second partial. The HR24 played it back fine, the HR34 didn't. Here's what I found, however. If I don't delete the HR34 partial that, at first, won't play back and just let it sit on the hard drive and "incubate" for a while, sooner or later it will play back, that is if it's not too short. Forget it for partials that are six seconds or less even though the HR34 always adds, for some infernal reason, a lot more time to the partial well after you press the STOP button. I wish STOP meant STOP -- right then and there.
