Since you have an ethernet wired connection by the HR34 try this.
Remove the CCK.
Connect the ethernet to the back of the HR34.
Reboot the HR34.
If you have other receivers let us know what they are. They may or may not work properly.

I have 2 hr24 and I don't use the Ethernet port to connect them. It goes from the coax cable right to the deca adapter then the deca goes thru Ethernet to my router. It works perfectly in both receivers and never gave me a problem
In your case the DECA adapter is the Cinema Connection Kit that bridges the Ethernet of your home network to the coax network of your receivers. Your HR24 receivers have built-in DECA adapters to split the network signal back out from the satellite signal on the coax network.
In the OP's case, he has an HR34. The HR34 can act as bridge between the ethernet network and the coax network. Thus, the OP does not actually need the CCK installed on their network.
Today's problems don't worry me, I haven't solved yesterday's yet.

For what it's worth, I have a HR34 with one client. It was installed without a CCK and it works just fine. My router is right next to the HR34 and there's just the one Ethernet cable between them.
