Since my 32/500 was replaced with the 34/700 last weekend the wifi box that directv provided with the 32/500 (and which worked with no major problems other than sync with the iPad app where the 32/500 had to be verified each time the app was launched) I have had continuous connection problems and even though selected on demand show eventually download I get messages on screen all the time about no connection and asking if I was to test or continue..... Testing will result in a fail as well as loosing the live show I am watching on delay and interrupt any schedule recordings is I have learned to ignore this msg and by the next day the download will be done for live TV I tend to pause the show and watch some 30 min recording then I can go back to live show and 30sec skip the adds.

My Internet is roadrunner 50/5 provided by time Warner. Speed at the wifi router is 50/5 as advertised by speed test and when I run speedtest on a wifi connected device I get 34.5/5.3 so time Warner says no problems at their end

Anything I can try before I get a service call?

Don't think a service call will help much other than replacing the wireless for a much reliable wired "DECA"

Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.
