I did some searching and couldn't find any discussion of this, which seemed odd since I'm sure others would have discovered it right away as I did. I just had a new HR34 installed with 2 C31 clients. I've been with Directv for 10+ years - most recently coming off a 3 HR2x DVR set up. However, one of the very first things I tried after getting this new system set up is watching a live show on a client. I paused the show for a couple minutes, then hit the 30Skip button multiple times (maybe 4 or 5) to bring it current. When I tried that it just locked up the receiver - picture froze. The only thing I could do was change the channel, then go back to the program I was watching. In doing so of course you lose your buffer, etc. If I leave it 'frozen' it would stay there - over an hour until I just changed the channel. I called Directv about this and they said there were no known issues like this. I'd HAVE to imagine others had this problem right away as I did... although I did not find any discussion of it on here. I do have the 30SKIP enabled, so I was going to revert back to 30SLIP and see if the issue persists. Anyone else notice this or know of a solution? If it's been discussed, kindly point me to that discussion thread and I'll gladly read through the posts there... Thanks!
