Happened approximately 2:30AM AZ time. Big download... Took awhile. System is much quicker.... Lag issues seem almost gone. Just caught it as i was heading to bed.... Quick look seems encouraging.
Everything is more smooth period. My pause and not starting up seems to be gone, yet that happens more random. Couldn't get that to happen though flipping around stations. Will see more later but things looking better for sure at this point.

Didn't notice the download until picture disappeared just after startup, this morn. RBR and all seems smooth. Download @ 2:19 AM, usual time.


Most irksome need-to-fix still hasn't happened: disappearing audio when Dolby ON during SD broadcasts. Otherwise, seems OK.

I've had this for about a week, and I've noticed it's come up with a DVR buffer when powering it on for me every time. I don't have any C31s in my setup.

Well I am not sure if this is because of this update the the first episode of Hell's Kitchen tonight recorded black. And I found out why. It tried recording Channel 5 WNYW from New York city. Im in Columbus OH so it should have recorded 28. I have Hell's kitchen as a smart search. How would it even find that channel. Its frustrating to come home and find a worthless recording.

Lag, non responsive remote is definitely gone on my unit thus far. Pause, resume, play issues have ceased to act up also... yet will need to wait a few days for confirmation on that as that particular issue is random and increases as time goes on.

Thus far im really pleased though.... They finally got an update that makes me give Kudos.

When you setup the Series Link for Hell's Kitchen did you do it as a "Far In Advance" deal? If so it appears as though the HR34 chose the national FOX feed, found in the 300's, and not your actual local FOX feed. That was a bug that's been reported in the past.

Well my 3D is back to normal with this release and this is the first Wednesday that I havn't had to reboot the HR34. :joy: Good Job.

I didn't have a live buffer coming out of standby, no big deal.

I think most of my network far in advance recorded the east coast feeds.

This is expected and you will get the new release when DIRECTV sends it to you. I would recommend that you do not force download firmware as others will suggest, it's not worth the risk.

The new Version Ox067E needs to be in the stream in order for you to DL the newest national release. It is NOT currently in the stream, so doing a forced DL will result in the same version that you currenly have.

Everyone should stop trying to force the download.

As always it's a staggered push. Different areas will get it at different times.

Have some patience and everyone will get the push.

Since it costs 1.66¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 3.32¢ worth.  That 3.32¢ is my own and not the 3.32¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.

Yes, did it as far in advance. Must have not been smart enough to realized to use my local channels. Grr

Yes. Usually it rolls out first to Mountain time, followed by Pacific, Central, then finally Eastern.

Just wait for it.

I am just not having luck with directv lately. I work up yesterday to the new software...and a completely reset HR34. Everything gone, all recordings, all series links, all preferences, everything. First time I turned the HR34 on yesterday it told me that whole home dvr had been activated...I wondered why I was getting that message and then discovered everything had been reset...any thoughts on why this happened? I have not done a menu reset in weeks and there is no way I managed to hit reset everything in the menu...

As discussed on the MRV thread, I continue to have nonstop problems with receivers dropping off the network and recordings pausing frequently.

My parents are visiting from out of town, and asking why in the world I put up with this terrible reliability. I didn't have a answer....

It may have been a bug in the past, which i didn't have.... until now. Wife and I sat down to watch the 2 Hour Hells Kitchen..No Dice. Black screen. Seems i was premature giving Kudos... Laag is back also. Hope the pause continue issue doesn't begin again or I am going to absolutely go postal. Why cant they fix something without trading it with other issues. Come on DTV, enough is enough..... Damn!!

Got the new software update and although I never had any issues since install, it seems to be faster when toggling between stations.

I am always skeptical about new SW but I would wait a couple days to see how it reacts, since its new and needs to populate.
