You may be barking up the wrong tree. CSRs cannot possibly know all the issues that have been/are being worked on, much less reported. I have every confidence that this is a software issue that'll eventually be remedied. There will be a few exceptions, where there are also hardware issues.

Freezing/Pixelation issues on your Genie? Here's how you can help

I'd be watching a show on the HR34 Genie in the Great Room and all was fine, the Wife would tell me her picture in the other room kept freezing for 10-15 seconds.
I have not seen a picture freezing event on the Genie only with the clients C31.

Since my HR34-700 received 0x0744 I've experienced multiple freeze ups while watching live TV.

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.

Interesting because I get freezing on my 34 for practically any recording on channel 4. When I double record the same episode on one of my HR2x receivers, there's no freezing or pixelation on the non-Genie dvrs. I haven't had a clean recording of Revolution since the new season began. We're both on LI so geography shouldn't be that much of an issue.

The freeze lasts for 10 seconds or so. The software version is OX744, we never had this problem till this latest version of software was applied.
Come on Directv, this shouldn't,t be happening.
Go back to your previous software version. It was working just fine.

A new kind of freeze-up happened tonight on a playback of a recorded Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. Instead of the usual pixelation, tonight we got a momentary blue screen with the audio continuing with the picture resuming after a few seconds. I never had time to use the remote, but the blue screen repeated several times in the space of ~10 minutes of the show.

We've been getting this on a couple of shows lately. A Daily Show recorded Wednesday night was so badly pixelated after about half way through, it was unwatchable. And tonight we were watching an episode of Boardwalk Empire recorded Sunday and it froze up about 2/3 of the way through and wouldn't let you fast forward in further. We then started watching the same episode recorded on an HR24 and it started pixelating at the same place, but didn't freeze and was, more or less, watchable till the end.

My Genie won't respond to the 6-second replay as a way of resolving the freeze-up but it does very well with STOP/Resume which is just as fast to accomplish.

Pattern has emerged:
Last week I recorded four shows that started around 9PM. All four recordings started pizelating at almost the exact same point in the recording. Could this mean something?

I have a case open with DirecTV's case management as I am having problems right now with recordings and live TV except when I skip back on the recording...the freezing will not occur on that recording again. My HR44-700 received a software update that it wasn't supposed to get last night, it received 0x797. Apparently it's still being tested by the engineers and it didn't solve my problems. So for now they are just monitoring.

0x797 is the current national release for the HR44s. Did it fix the freezing problem for you?
