    I get that, but if the 61 is working correctly why doesn't everyone who has a C61K have the same problem?

    I used to use the Barracudas in HRs, had so many problems I switched to WD drives. I talked to guys at Seagate a few times during that period and they didn't recommend them for DVRs at the time, but neither did WD and those drives are good in HRs...any HR.

    I have a couple Sammy 4K sets, they don't have any problems with D* content and don't seem to cause any problems with the HRs.

    Good idea, D* isn't ready for 4K yet.

    Just a FYI in case you don’t already know, You can’t simply clone... you have to use the copying procedure in another thread here.

    And I blame the dock before I’d blame the genie, since they do not technically support anything, anything that does work has to be working as DIRECTV designed the system, so if it’s slightly off, it won’t work perfect. They have never once said they designed a system to support a raid enclosure.

    There is a history of only certain drives working well and others not as well in any DIRECTV DVR as well... so that may also just be an issue with that drive more than anything as well.

    Because to paraphrase what I have said many times before, tv manufactures suck. They don’t like to stick exactly to specs on handshakes an other things and some are faster than others and so on, and these tiny little deviations screw stuff up. And I am going past history to blame the tv manufactures, especially someone like Sony, who always prefers to do it slightly different to better connect their own products than others...

    But today, with so much going on from so many different brands, it’s hard to say any one sucks, rather than everyone sucks at being perfect. But especially with the latest standards, some tvs will just have more issues than others...

    I agree. I have a Sony 4k avr, all devices (DirecTv, fire stick, Blue Ray player all go through the avr). My internet is wired into my Samsung tv. But I'm occasionally having the blank screen issues. Glad others are as well, I thought it was my TV.

    perhaps Sony can be your target as making own processors for TVs, but other TV's mfgs utilize such chips from third companies

    There is a software update coming for the C61k client soon.

    Has nothing to do with the chips and everything to do with how they program it all.

    It's supposed to address handshaking issues? How soon?

    I didn't say what it was for, just that it was upcoming. I don't know when.

    well, you could use it with some different settings, but the chips is hardcoded for scaling algos;
    if you'll know how fast it should be [scaling] you'll not insist on programming
