it is a valid concern, right now the HR34 is two updates behind. time to call DirecTV

 

No, it's not.  Just relax, you'll get it when your dvr is authorized to get it.

0x0740 is in stream constantly right now. There is no reason those who do not want to wait to force update their receiver. Do a normal menu restart and as soon as the front panel lights come back on press "0 2 4 6 8 enter" quickly and the new firmware should load. If you wait a hair too long after the restart the firmware search/install will not occur.

 

You can't force it if your DVR isn't authorized to get it regardless if it is in the stream or not.  No one should be forcing anything.

not at all. You aren't behind.

They decided before the one got to everyone to send out a different one with more bug fixes.

And they roll these out slow looking for issues, So it can take months for everyone to get it. ,everyone just wait and enjoy what you have. :)

 

So you are saying that version 0x0725 was pulled because there where issues and replaced with version 0x0740?

 

Have never waited months to get, always been within 3 weeks of release date. since current is 0x0740 and mine is running 0x06DB installed 06/18, it is behind

I have had this happen to me with my older HR23 and 24 receivers in the last 2 years. A new one comes out and everyone is talking about it and I never get it. Then there is a new new one that everyone is talking about. About 3 weeks to a month later I usually get the new new one. LOL

Longest ive seen was almost two months. Hi Definition GUI update comes to mind. Generally they seem to hit less than three weeks.

And they seem to do it in a general order but that changes a little sometimes as well. Again nothing to worry about everyone will get it when it's time.

Maybe engineering monitor these threads to see if there's any issues or there's several reported issues also, then they delay the NR and see if there's CE issues also, and if there's less problems then they convert that to NR. But all is just a guess of mine.

Or one could moved to the mountain time zone. It seems that time zone get the upgrade first. I think I had a Customer Service told me that Mountain Time zone is the test site? :coffee

  I hope so. 0x725 was a disaster with HDMI timing issues. I guess I am going have to have the upgrade available in the PDT zone.

There was a bad storm that went through with lots of lightning. So I did my turn off and unplug all devices routine. I was watching a recorded program prior to all this. When everything was back up after the storm I returned to the list in the genie and there were programs in there other than what I recorded. I gather these were programs from the genie recommends feature. I deleted them and resumed my program. If this is normal I do not know but I thought I would report it here.

I've not seen that- or at least not noticed it if it happened. Yes, reporting it is "a good thing".

No its by individual receivers. Sometimes people will get them on one box and not the other in their own home.

It will come when it comes. There is no me specific area that gets them first all the time.

Just a note on this. The items in the list were combined with mine. There were about three or four items I deleted that were not recorded by me. I disabled the Genie Recommends feature, not needed for me. The items not recorded by me were not it the list until I powered up all my stuff btw.

Received the update early this morning... I was still on 06DB also... it seems I'm normally one of the last to get updates in the past so maybe the roll out is moving ahead.

Us, the "East Coasters" always are the last to get the updates, which is a good thing.

Still on 0x06DB here in L.A. after reverting back on the 15th from the disastrous 0x0725. 

 

And in no hurry to get 0x0740, nor do I really want it, as I enjoy having the broadcast sub-channels back from my AM21's OTA scanning for the time being, and the old app system. :)

My wife told me tonight the HR34 did not work at all today. Figuring there was a S/W push last night, here were my results at 8:30 tonight:

-HR34 would not power up by remote.
-Would not power up pressing power on front bezel at least 10 times.
-Pressed the RBR button, and DirecTV logo on front bezel flashed on then off after a second, unit not working.
-Pressed RBR button again, all bezel lights came on for a second, then shut off. Unit not working.
-Pressed RBR button again, all lights stayed on, software D/L screen came on, and progress bar went from 0 to 96% in 2 seconds, then overlay progress bar ran the screen, then main progress went to 97%.
-Overlay progress bar ran the screen again, this time it made it to 100%.
-Unit rebooted, and the Pink screen appeared on the 'a few seconds more' screen. Live TV finally appeared.

Checking the system info screen, I got x0740 at 8:48pm CST tonight.

Meanwhile, a couple of my HR24-100's got the x0736 update Monday, and today are freezing up with the new TVApps. Graphics are overlaying each other like crazy, by pressing playlist button and menu button, then arrows don't work to navigate. The software adjustments this year are really messing things up in my opinion. All 7 of my HR24-100's used to be rock solid for years and this year they are buggy and slow. :(

I have my HR44 connected to a Pioneer Receiver via HDMI. With 0x06DB I was able to turn my Pioneer receiver off and have the audio route to tv speakers. With 0x0740 this feature no longer works. When I turn the Pioneer receiver off I will get about 2 seconds of picture / audio on the tv then nothing.

That's not going to have anything to do with the firmware on your HR44.  That's going to be a "pass through" or "pass thru" setting on your Pioneer.

Yup, this is a feature in your AVR and not DirecTV
