All of these receivers will occasionally be slow to respond to remote commands. I think their processors, if that's the correct term, get bogged down with other activity frequently. But the 34s, at least the one I had, was starting to get almost as bad as the HR 21 it had replaced, although I've seen nothing as bad as that device. Between that slow response issue as well as the on again off again video breakup and freezing, I had enough and got it replaced with a 44. There's not much of a difference in speed compared to when the 34 was responding properly, but compared to the other times it's quite significant. And thus far I haven't had that video freeze/breakup on prime time shows I was getting on the 34. If the slow response is getting worse or seems to be more constant than just an occasional issue you might want to think about a replacement. Apparently they are no longer even supplying 34s so they are ( silently ) admitting the issues.

IP- using an iPad, smartphone or computer to control the DVR.
Have you even restarted the box once to see if that helps?
I don't use IP to control. That is actually another problem I need help on - geniego app and IP control with iphone. I am having problems connecting to it even though it is hooked up on the network.
I did the restart through the menus 1 night a month ago (if that is what you are talking about). Don't think it helped that much at the time. It has been working okay now but I havent used the fast forward and rewind tools extensively since the world cup ended.
I (and most likely anybody here) would post that warning if that would be the case.
I appreciate it! I will try clearmybox tonight
