    My Genie HR34 is getting frequent breakups of signal today, is anyone else seeing this? Solar flare activity?

    About to drop kicks this dvr anyway it has gotten so incredibly slow, I punch in a channel change and wait 10+ seconds for it to happen.

    Solar flare activity is far gone, although the next one is around the corner....

    What do the satellite signal strength readings show?

    I checked signals and saw it doing this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHrCT61X_fA It was doing that on all satellites.

    So figuring I had nothing to loose I unplugged my power inserter for a couple minutes then plugged it back in. Wala, problem gone. Dunno if it was the LNB or the SWM acting up.

    My money is on the HR34- Just search this site for HR34 and read all the happy users who have them - You can read them while you unplug your system over and over again while waiting it for TV to back on :rolling:

    LOL well I may have been willing to blame it but my HR22 was displaying the same break ups of signal.

    The HR34 is a sore point with me, mine was installed 5 days before the hr44 was announced....
