No if I had it my way, We would have fast responding HR's where everything works perfectly everyday.

Not when it feels like it.

Like I said, why don't we fix our issues first before we create more.

The amout of HR34 threads I see everyday , the amount of bugs I see from it.

Not to mention the other HR's
Are they acceptible boxes , Sure. But they can still use a few fixes first!

The odds are more likely that you have a substandard installation, and that is the source of your issues ;)

Ofcourse, I didn't think it was anything else.:rolleyes::rolleyes:

But lets get that 4K out so we can screw these machines up more!


Can the chipset in the HR34 and below even decode and output 4K? I was thinking DirecTv would need to release a totally new receiver/DVR when 4K arrived.

I'm sure you're right.

According available info from Broadcom: current chips are not capable to process 4K regardless if it compressed by current standard H.264.
