If anyone is missing "My Directv" or Movies posters, do a double red button reset. The Shadow helped me with that earlier. Thanks to the Shadow:)

You should only be using RBR if the unit is completely locked up and unresponsive.  For a normal reboot use the "reset" option in the software.

I don't have the new one either. Sometimes it comes quickly, sometimes it takes as much as a month, sometimes it does not come at all and I get the next number in the cycle.

Be patient, when they want us to have it, we will get it.

Another version ? The last one hosed up 2 of my 3 DVRs guide-wise for almost a week. I wish I could opt out of these things.

Thinking about replacing my dvrs with a genie. Does anyone know if there is a season pass limit, my Tivo has no limit but my dtv dvrs are limited to 50 season passes. Season pass amount is a stopper for me so I thank you in advance.

Big Problem!!!

 

Couldn't a find thread dedicated to the HR34 Genie 740 so here goes.

 

HR34-700/AM21 F/W 0740

 

Yesterday watching NFL ST using PIP when I tried to switch screens the HR34 LOCKED UP completely. Would not respond to any commands remote or box including power button on box.

 

Hit RED button gave it a few minutes to settle down after reset and tried PIP again, worked for a while then the exact same lock-up as before. Did a second RED button. After second RBR box worked right for most of the late game using PIP.

 

About midway through the late game it locked up for a third time and this time I pulled power cord for 30 min. and was able to finish the late games using PIP.

After the game I checked the playlist and it was blank only showing 90% free space, no recordings at all.

Checked playlist on the HR20 and it showed all recordings on the HR34 and tested a couple and the played normally.

 

This time I did a menu restart and all recordings showed back up in the list but I had to manually Restart Network Services.

 

My HR34-700 is about a year old now and has been Rock Solid except for a few minor glitches, nothing to compare to the problems of other new boxes going through growing pains.

 

Am I just lucky or has anyone else had an experience like this using PIP?

Has anyone gotten this software update yet?  Will this software update fix the guide bug?

Got this update on 10/15 and am disappointed.  The previous release caused DirecTV2PC and MediaShare to stop working properly or all together.  They were working fine before.

 

DirecTV2PC sees my HR21-200 but does not display the recordings at all.  With the previous release (736?) I could change how the list was displayed and then they would appear but if there were multiple recordings in a group it would display the group name and "0/0" for recordings.  Now I don't see any recordings at all.  Previous this worked flawlessly for me.  MediaShare does not work at all now.

 

I have tried resets, RBR and even powered down the box for over a 1/2 hour, reset the router, etc., but these still do not work.  Nothing has changed in my network setup, PC, etc.  One thing I did notice with the previous release and this one is that if I check the advanced network settings on the HR21-200 which has always been set to "AUTO" the STB is no longer assigning ports.  This always worked just fine.  Is it possible this is causing my problems?  I have tried manually setting the STB ports and it says it is successful but cannot make a connection.  Pandora, YouTube, Apps, etc., all work fine and the receiver is recognized on my network.

 

Any ideas?  I would appreciate it because I have tried just about everything I can think of.  Very frustrating!

Got the 0x740 version this morning on my 2 HR24s. I have not checked the H21 since it is in my son's room and he is asleep.

Will update if I see any problems. It is slow this morning but that is because I always do a reset / restart the receiver after new software is loaded.

 

Edit / Add: I have had this version now for one week on 2 receivers and so far have not noticed any problems. I do not have them on the internet nor do I have the Whole Home DVR service.
