This is the official Issues and Discussion thread for HR34, version 0x05D4

Release notes: http://www.dbstalk.c...d.php?p=3158763

We ask that you keep polite and focused within this thread, and post as much detail as possible. If your receiver is set up for network issue reporting, please post the key generated by the receiver.

Being part of the DBSTalk community means working together to help each other document issues and come up with solutions. While everyone gets upset from time to time, this is not the appropriate place for vents or rants. All off-topic posts and discussion will be deleted.


Thanks!

All resolutions but 480p were unselected. Previous to update, only 1080i and 1080p were selected.

The post says no new features, but I have several changes from the color buttons to other buttons (while in guide, etc). The color buttons still work the same.

I just got this today. Did others get it earlier? I looked through some past releases but saw nothing noted.

We can finally delete recorded shows from C31 clients.

That's a change for this version. I guess they really didn't consider it a new feature, as both sets of buttons have worked for a long time, they just changed the GUI.

480i is no longer selectable on my receiver (says TV doesn't support next to it). Kind of pisses me off because I use native and my TV does a much better job of upscaling than the DirecTV box does. SD channels really look like garbage now.

It looks like long term they are going to phase out the colored buttons. The CES preview of the HR44 has a new remote and I noticed those were missing from it right away.

I like the idea because then I don't have to look for universal remotes with color buttons on them anymore.

Two important fixes from my perspective (I have HR-34 and 2 C31s). As mentioned earlier, you can delete from C31s, and folder view is now available on Directv2PC.

I believe that in an environment with a c31 that does to have MRV on the account, this did not work.

Last time I called DTV, they told me I would never be able to delete shows on my HR34 from my C31. They told me the salesperson and installer were both wrong. There was no offering for MRV or Whole Home DVR to fix this. I am glad this now works as intended, and it didn't cost me more out of pocket.

Just got the update.

Unfortunately, all of my recorded programs were wiped clean and my favorites list no longer works (I had to re-program it). Also, my to do list and my series manager was wiped out.

Anyone have the same problems?

I am ticked as well right now my 480i is missing. I use native myself and have everything checked. Says my tv does not support 480i now. It has always supported it. I really hope this is a major bug and not intentional on Directv's part. Anyone know whats going on? :nono:

Do you use an external drive? If so, try unplugging it, then plug it back in, maybe reboot after that.

It may be too early, but it looks like this update fixed my skipping issues. Every so often a program would just stop for a second or two. Also, I could never pass the system test - I think it was a 752 error - network issues.

Now, everything looks stable and solid with no skips so far and I am passing system test.

No, I just have the standard set up with the internal drive. It's really strange b/c everything was wiped clean, EXCEPT for the name of my favorites list (there were no channels saved in it, but the name remained). Everything else was wiped clean (nothing in the programs list, nothing in the to do list, etc.).

Oh well.

Im able to pause now and play without issues. BUT I did a red button reset last night (had to do it every few days), update was after that...So a bit more time is needed to see if that issue is gone... But so far, looking good.

I spoke too soon. Skipping problem is back and HR34 is failing system test again.

Error 79-564
1. Network
Playback Errors due to dropped connections. This receiver appears to be experiencing network playback errors.

I called DTV a couple of weeks ago. Tech said they were told to ignore 79 errors.
