    Freeze problem continues. D* says they fixed the problem on 7/26 without having to push out a software update. On the phone with D* now reporting that the issue still exists.

    If you are still having issues with recording freezes, PLEASE CALL D* AND REPORT IT. They think they fixed the problem, and they need to know that it still exists.

    Thanks.

    Thanks, bnwrx. I still cannot figure out how to stop getting the Rube Goldberg SCORE GUIDE when I really want the old SCORE GUIDE. About your problem, have you tried checking your Daylight/Standard time setting?

    Checked it, my TZ is Mountain and DST is set for auto. Looks like the problem is at DTV's end. I did a check yesterday, I used the "New" ScoreGuide(the HD one) and scheduled recordings from it. All were recorded at the correct time. Go figure....

    Check if your zip code is set correctly. I thought I saw someone mention in this thread that this update set theirs to El Segundo when they received it. Not sure if that would cause this issue.

    I've noticed another issue. Occasionally Closed Captions just stop showing up. Not often but at least once every few days. It takes a reset to bring them back.

    Looking at the firmware watcher at http://www.redh.com/dtv/?r=HR34-700 I find it interesting that deployment of this release on the HR34 seems to have stopped completely - it hasn't been in the stream for a while. Must be more problematic than we realize?

    If that table is accurate then my HR34/700 was updated to the wrong firmware - I show 0x725 installed on 07/17, which is listed as a HR44 firmware.

    Yeah, I notice;

    And because of these bugs I really wouldn't mind bailing out of x0725 and return to x06DB which is the NR in the stream now to await a better x0700 series release. I would also get OTA scanning back too :).

    But I think what will happen is if you revert back to a x0600 series release from a x0700 series one, all your recordings will be deleted.

    Can anyone confirm this?

    Since you were already targeted for 725, your receiver will just redownload it again overnight next time its available.

    As for losing recordings, it depends on how much has changed and if they updated anything about the format they record programming. If they did usually you only lose the recordings made since the upgrade, but if they did something to how they store existing recordings you might lose everything.

    Yes, but looking at the FW watcher history, as rmmccann notes, 0x0725 has not been in the stream for quite awhile now. So it "appears" not to be coming back given its many reported problems.

    However, I fear reverting to x06DB until the next x0700 series NR if all my recordings will be deleted.

    I've been having this issue a couple times a week for the past few weeks also but I'm still on the previous release as well... and also looks like this release isn't being used anymore either...

    To go back to 0x06DB you need to make sure it is in the stream - check this site http://www.redh.com/dtv/

    • Restart your receiver. Using the remote control, select
      Menu -> Settings&Help -> Settings > Reset -> Restart Receiver ({DASH} to confirm)
    • When the reset process starts, the blue LEDs on the front of the receiver will turn off
    • Once the LEDs on the front of the receiver come back on OR the first blue screen is displayed, whichever occurs first, enter this special code from your remote control: 0 2 4 6 8.
    • After a few more seconds, you should see a screen indicating that the 10-20 minute download cycle has started.

    Wow ... just when I'm ready to revert to the NR x068DB, the FW watcher site won't load now so I can make sure it's in the stream. :bang

    Anyone else having problems accessing the site?

    is there really a way to go back? AFAIK, if DirecTV "locks you" with "X" version of FW, there is no way to get another version unless is CE of course

    Yes, it can revert to an earlier version;

    As long as its the version in the stream at the time of the 0-2-4-6-8 initiated download.
