    Well I got my receiver replacement in yesterday for my previous 34 that was having freezing issues. So far so good, time will tell. The recover still is on the 6db ( I think that's it, the original version). I am still waiting to see if it will update to the current version.I will keep everyone updated on this one. They sent me another 34 tho.

    It should update over night. If it doesn't we can explain to you how to force it to update.

    since receivers tend to update overnight and Fridays and Saturday Nights are for "some special" downloads, I will give until Monday or Tuesday for update to install

    Well so far after a few days with the replacement receiver, I have had zero problems. There is no pixalaztion and even the local news on NBC that i record and watch later has had no problems.So far I guess that it was just the receiver that was causing the problems. Of course I also got the 079e update so that may have fixed the stability issue.

    Update: well, after appx. 13 days my local recorded news had pixelaztion issues. I am beginning to think it had nothing to do with the local station as direct is saying but a hardware issue. Had not a single problem till last night with this receiver. This is going to get old quick.have not decided what I am going to do next.

    You could ask for a service call, the techs seem to be carrying only 44s on their trucks.
