    Same thing here. Uninstalling and rolling back to 5313 works for me. It's a bit old and hard to find, but Google is your friend.

    Thanks, that fixed that error for me. I had to reboot though after disabling it. Works great on my machine with the following specs:

    Win 7 Pro x64 RTM
    AMD Phenom II X4 940 3.4 GHz
    4GB RAM
    Radeon 4890
    Dual Dell 2209WA monitors

    If you have Gmail you can always do the . trick...i.e. u.ser@gmail.com is the same as user@gmail.com.

    Am I missing something completely obvious here?

    I went to the URL provided and clicked the link to access the beta. I was brought to a cyberlink site where I could download the installer without having to register.

    There is no link to register, hence I cannot get a serial number.

    Thanks in advance!

    Just tried with IE8 instead of Firefox and now I get the link to register.

    Sorry for the stupid question! =)

    It is not really stupid. Foxfire is kind of buggy with certain web sites. I have a few that I have to use IE with or they don't work correctly.

    This version works on the HR22 but I had problems with HDCP support on the soundmax card using Windows 7 Ultimate RTM, found a thread in the groups to disable certain pieces it is now working ...nice to watch recording and type at the same time using Dual Monitors with Dual ATI Radeon cards.

    I can't even get the website to send me a new serial number anymore. Kind of frustrating for me as I enjoyed this software.

    Have you tried to reset the DVR? (red button or from Setup)

    Actually restarting through the menu option is better than restarting using the red button...

    Issue: Error During Installation
    When performing the install, I receive the following error:
    Error 1304: Error writing to C:\Program Files\DirecTV\Customizations\Cyberlink\APPREG.URL. Verify you have access to the directory.

    I cannot get past this error. Anyone else get this before? I had the install program uninstall the previous version and then install the new version, which is what I do everytime I upgrade DirecTV2PC.

    I gave up, unistalled the newest version, restarted and went back to install version 4526 (the last one I was using fine for a long while before I decided to chance an new upgrade the other day).

    I still received an error 1904 near the end of the install of the old version, which I never got the first time I ever installed it a good while ago, but it is now working again with the old v1.1.v4526. Weird.:confused:

    Okay... Well, since we can't contact DirecTV about this release, anyone have any ideas on what I can do here?

    Windows 7 Ultimate x64 RTM
    Dell D830
    nVidia Quadro 140m

    For it to work on Dell D830 with Win7:
    Disable all digital audio device
    Disable all network adapters except one
    Video stutters on Wireless G - WiFi adapter takes away too much CPU?

    Does not work anymore on Dell Docking Station with DVI external monitor.
    :rolleyes:

    Now I need to roll v5708 back several versions (before the codec updates that locked down Directv2PC WAYYY too much). Does anyone know which version that is? :icon_da:
