Anything new with it or just "under the hood"?
No new features with this update.

Still suffering from sporadic remote delays and/or lockouts. In addition (and I haven't seen it mentioned), every time I do a normal button press I get the aural error "bonk" which has become aggravating as hell. It started with the previous release to 0x8d4. Silly me, I thought this release would've fixed it.
And before you all tell me to just turn the aural error bonk off, the HR34 is my Mom's (who is technologically challenged) and she relies on that bonk sound to let her know she's made a mistake.
I have an HR24 that was giving me the bonk sound and I was using a remote that was only a year old. I thought surely that I had worn it out so I bought 2 more on Ebay. Tonight my receiver told me the batteries in the remote were low and I should change them. Instead I put new batteries in one of the new remotes and set it up for my TV. Wow, works great and the bonk sound is gone.
Then I got to wondering if it was the new remote or the new batteries. I put 2 new batteries in the year old remote and used it for awhile. No bonk sound now using it either.
It could be a coincidence that the new software came out at the same time your batteries are weak.
Try replacing the batteries and see if the bonk goes away.

I just turn off the sound effects so I won't hear that navigation "bonk" sound it's annoying.

HR34-700 8d6 LOCKUP
20141012-C699 ERROR: 3
When I started playing NFL ST games in PIP mode I noticed that the annoying Prompt appeared only once then never showed up again. The enhanced report still worked by hitting the red button.
PIP whitching worked very well.
When halftime started on the early games I went to send DirecTV a "HAPPY GRAM" thanking them for fixing the issue!!
With two games being displayed in PIP mode I hit the info screen to get the software version for the report and the game on the main display went into the small box upper left and info displayed normally.
The Genie then LOCKED UP!!!!
It would not take any remote commands nor would it respond to any buttons on the box including power.
Let it set in this state for 3 or 4 minutes and the info screen cleared and it went back to the PIP display that I had been watching however it would still not respond to remote or on the box.
Did a red button and normal operation returned.
Shortly after the restart I noticed on some of the games the audio sounded like it was muffled like talking under water. Othr games sounded ok. Not unusual to get different audio levels across several NFL games,
Later in the evening while playing a recorded program the audio muffled sound issue returned. Most times the back button a few times would ckear it up, sometimes not.
I have been defending the HR34's operation since I first got it but I'm about to join the "Its broken Club"!!!
