I have been a DirecTV customer for over 10 years and have been through many of the HD DVR Receivers and have never had as many issues and bugs as I have with the HR34-700. The guide is slow. It freezes all the time. It freezes all the time when deleting programs. We regularly lose programs in our Manage Recordings. The program is there one day and gone the next. We have programs recorded and then get deleted. Programs that are scheduled to record just do not record. Programs start recording then stop in the middle of the recording and start back later in the recording. I could go on and on but it seems like it's something different every day.
I have 1 client and also an HR24 that do not have these issues. We probably have 60% free space with over 60 programs in our Manage Recordings. I have tried multiple resets, clearmybox and system tests but the issues continue.
I am thinking about biting the bullet and ordering an HR44 since DirecTV refuses to do anything. Has anyone upgraded from the HR34 to the HR44 over issues similar to this? I am concerned that the issues will still be there with the HR44. Thanks for any feedback.
