someone please tell me the genie isn't honestly this crappy. I cant pause live TV. when I do I cant go back and watch it. are there lots of issues with this thing. I have trying to get it and now I have it and it doesn't even do the things I want it to do.

I have to record the show and go into list and watch the show. otherwise it cant pause and watch and catch up.

That isn't right. It does pause live TV, rewind & fast forward. You shouldn't be having issues with that.

I recommend a Menu Restart but be careful to ensure the other DVRs don’t take the available tuners before the HR34 comes back up.

What is the current firmware version? You’ll find it in the Settings & Info.

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.

I did a reset and set up the other receivers with one tuner.  seems to be working fine now.  It was a mess.  if I paused and wanted to watch it I had to hit record and go into list to watch the show.  hope that doesn't happen again.  it happened like 5 straight times on all different channels.

install went well.  put in SWM 16 and new power block..  everything works fine other than I cant figure out how to turn off the recording message that pops up almost everytime I change the channel.  I turned off recording tips but its still there.

You need to have at least  6 series links in order for the message to go away
