Guide, quicktune, scrolling etc. all have gotten much slower recently. Is there anything I can do to help speed it up? Thanks

Do an Smart Search for "CLEARMYBOX"

or clear NVRAM cache on CH 1 using the colored buttons:  R,R,B,B,Y,G  and watch for the NVRAM Cleared message in white text

Which would be hard to see, at the bottom of the screen,  Though it only works temporarly

You will not lose any settings or recordings. Do this when you have at least 1 hour before the receiver is scheduled to record next.

It can take 48 hours or more to download all that it removes like the Guide Data, Graphics, etc.

I agree.  I think that the best time to execute a CLEARMYBOX function is before I go to bed and have nothing scheduled to record overnight.  Whenever, I've done one while I'm actually watching TV, I've gotten frustrated at the lack of guide data for the next few hours.

It's a good way to delete whatever show that the Genie been recording in the background.  

 

How often do you guys CLEARMYBOX?

Every blue moon! Or, only when it seems Guide data could be corrupted, which hasn't happened for me for almost a year.

VOS has said that this sequence actually does nothing for speed, it is more staying on that channel for that period of time.

I am having problems with the HR34 getting stuck and non responsive to any inputs (the remote is fine).

I will fast forward and then it will get stuck and keep going forward for a certain amount of time then I will be able to rewind back if it doesnt happen to get stuck as well.

 

Will this help me?

Possibly- worth a try. 

Are you using IP control as well as the remote? How full is the HDD?

IP control?

 

Hard drive is 27% free. It started doing it around 40% however.

IP- using an iPad, smartphone or computer to control the DVR. 

Have you even restarted the box once to see if that helps?

I (and most likely anybody here) would post that warning if that would be the case.

I have used it on both of my HR24s and did not lose any settings , favorites, series, etc. and no recordings.
