    Got the 0x0744 update on HR34 on 10/22/13. Still seeing the flashing issue on recordings, haven't seen it on live TV since update. This morning, the receiver became unresponsive to remote commands. It would respond to channel up/down, would bring up the guide or playlist, but would not respond to the arrow buttons to navigate. RBR fixed the issue. This is the first time I've had to do a RBR on this HR34.

    All NY Rangers, but I will also record the CBC HNIC feed on Saturday and if I'm bored one or two other games during the week.

    The same thing happened to me on the HR44-700, it's been having a few freeze-ups lately with this SW.

    Assuming that x0744 is for the HR34 and x0746 is for the HR44, I am confused. A Genie is a Genie as far as replacement goes, then
    why is two different SW being issued?

    I don't know the answer for sure but one thing to keep in mind is that the HR44 has wifi, the HR34 does not. They also have different CPUs, etc.

    THought that was odd too. I got 744 on my 200, but have not seen 746 come through yet.

    My DIRECTV in the Menu has been displaying the "Check back later and we'll have shows to share" message for 3 days now and does not seem to update. Also TV Shows in the Menu under Search & Browse has been giving me the "TV Shows is currently updating. Please check back in 1 hour" message also for the past 3 days. My HR44-200 had 744 but was upgraded to 746 yesterday. It is connected to the internet and TV Apps comes up just fine however I had to change weather back to my location since the 746 upgrade. I have ran 2 system tests which comes back OK. I have reset the HR44 2 times and the Menu still does not update the shows. I also have a HR24-500 and it is working and updating just fine. Anything else to check?

    I have a Genie HR44/700, and about 2 weeks ago TV Apps stopped working, giving the No Internet Detected error. In the system info, it says "Not Connected (22)" for internet.

    Version is 0x0744, installed on 10/17. I don't know if the problem started before or after that.

    However, hitting Dash, it says SWiM Connected, Internet connected.
    On demand downloads work fine, as does Youtube. TV Apps appear to be the only thing not working.

    The ethernet was connected to a CCK/DECA2 adapter when this started, part of my troubleshooting was to disconnect it and connect an Ethernet to the box. Same exact results. Several reboots and hitting the reset button as well.

    Not a gigantic deal, but I miss checking the weather. Stranger yet, if I go to a sports channel, I can still hit the red button, and the scoreboard app works that way! I'm just out of ideas!

    I have the same issue since the 746 update. My system matches yours exactly except, in addition the to the HR24-500, I also have a THR22 hooked up. I haven't bothered to try doing any resets though.

    When I found mine had gotten 746, as usual I did two back to back menu resets. Last time it took 2 days for a lot of that stuff to load, so Ill keep an eye out.

    Good news, but it's probably not cause and effect!

    Since the update My DIRECTV in the Menu has been displaying the "Check back later and we'll have shows to share" message and does not seem to update. Also TV Shows and Movies in the Menu under Search & Browse has been giving me the "TV Shows is currently updating. Please check back in 1 hour" message. Have rebooted multiple times since with no change.

    My HR24-500 works fine.

    Try doing two Menu resets within 30 minutes. Then you'll have another wait, but it may be worth it.

    Menu resets meaning RBR?

    I have had 746 on my HR44-200 for a little over a week.

    It appears the known WiFi issue for the HR44-200 has been fixed with this release. I have had zero issues since the update.
