question on removing VMWARE did you "uninstall it" or just close it down? What OS is you PC ? My Directv2pc only sees my hr24 never my hr34. my pc= window 7 enterprise 64 bit and vmware 8.0.2 build-591240 I keep having to record on the hr24 if I want to view .. waiting for a solution . But cannot uninstall vmware .. as I need it more.
