    Add me to the list of people getting intermittent (IR) remote lockouts with HR34 and 0x8d4. Lockouts last up to several minutes and occur fairly frequently. I can't remember this happening before 0x8d4 but I've been using the HR34 more intensely of late. WIll try CLEARMYBOX.

    Does this problem affect the HR44? It's to the point now where I need to get an HR44 (if it's unaffected) or switch providers. Thanks.

    My 44 has freezing issues. Sometimes it comes back in a 5-30 seconds and other times I get tired of waiting and do a RBR.

    My HR34, along with all the mentioned remote delays, has started taking up to 45 seconds to show the
    guide after the guide button is pressed...bout time this remote problem gets fixed...

    Agree my HR34 is also making my C31 take forever to respond as well.
    Even after you wait for the guide to load, there is still random 15-20 second freezes while in the guide.
    I'm in RF mode as well.

    Add me to the list. I loved the hr34 until this. Remote commands not followed until 30 seconds or more sometimes and it random. No rhythm or reason. It's like it gets busy and doesn't want to be bother. Was fast forwarding and the progress bar didn't appear but it was going forward at 1x or 2x and half way through the commercial break it finally hit 3x and the bar appeared. Frustrating!

    Does anyone with any connections know if DirecTV is even aware of this issue or if it's being worked on? Seems like something they'd obviously be aware of, but with these guys you never know.

    Always does.
    I've had my HR34 since May 2012, and this nonsense is still happening 2 1/2 years later.

    Been checked multiple times by 4 different techs, and been told it's a known issue multiple times by Directv's tech support.

    I think directv software development is worse than its ever been.

    I wish DirecTV would just punt the ball and contact TiVo about making the Roamio system work with DirecTV services. If they want to keep playing developer, they can at least give us the option of using something that works well.

    Ok, guy was here. Put some new connectors on. Can't find the problem. Every couple days the C41's lose contact with the mothership :( Then we have to give the mothership a kick in the pants! We'll see what happens next.

    I'm getting micro-stutters on CNN every few seconds. The stutters only seem to be noticeable on the scroller. I see it on both TVs, the Hr44 and its C41. Both Test OK and have been Restarted, and I'm not noticing it on other channels with tickers or scrolls.

    I had that problem on my Samsung LCD that does 120Hz. I turned that off and set it back to 60Hz.
    Smooth as silk ever since.
    You might want to try that on one set to see if it helps.

    Add me to the frustration list that is the crappy HR34 software. This needs to be fixed soon!

    HR34/0x8d4

    Still suffering from sporadic remote delays and/or lockouts. In addition (and I haven't seen it mentioned), every time I do a normal button press I get the aural error "bonk" which has become aggravating as hell. It started with the previous release to 0x8d4. Silly me, I thought this release would've fixed it. :rolleyes:

    And before you all tell me to just turn the aural error bonk off, the HR34 is my Mom's (who is technologically challenged) and she relies on that bonk sound to let her know she's made a mistake.

    I called div. Said it's known problem and they are working on it. Asked about an upgrade to the 44. No luck they can't do any thing until contract is up in may of 2015. What bugs me the most is I have been with them since 1996. Never late on payment always recommend them to family and friends and this is how they respond to loyal customers. If it wasn't for Sunday ticket I may just switch to Ota. That said they know I will never leave or threaten to because I love the ticket. Addiction are a crutch. Can't wait to try out the 44

    I had the horrible HR34 remote delays/lockout issues and I may have fixed them.

    I deleted a bunch of series links. I was at about 70 and trimmed it down to 52. I also freed up a lot of space 18% to 30%.

    It has been running super smooth since I did that. I will let yall know if that changes.
