    Any chance the status bar appearing on each skip has been corrected? I haven't received yet but that is still my biggest negative on the 34.

    No, it has not been changed. I think they would have changed it by now if they had any intention to.

    Any ideas on the rollout schedule? I have an HR34 installed yesterday and I haven't seen the 67C in redh at all. Just curious.

    I wouldn't count on it... That's what they told me FW will fix it, wait, wait, wait..it got worse until it was not working at all. IMO don't let them string you along, call them and tell them its a piece of crap and want a replacement.

    On that note, new FW has slowed the system down. Lag before, now 3 times as much. On a good note as they come rarely is that on this new unit the lock up issue hasn't returned. Knock on wood.

    If I'm going to call and complain and demand a replacement, it's going to be for an HR44 and it's not going to happen until I'm closer to retention. All in all I haven't had a lot of problems with the HR34 - this freeze up thing has only started happening since the last update.

    Has this gone National yet. Have not received it yet and was wondering. Usually I get a NR right away.

    Has anyone had an issue with the HR34 HDMI output? My Pioneer 822 would not change resolution. 'had to "lock down the resolution" to 1080i just to watch TV. Direct will replace the Genie. This HR34 worked just fine for about 4 months. My H25 worked great into the Pioneer all the way to 1080P. Just wondering...

    You have a Beta version of the Genie software, versions like this are part of a program here called the Cutting Edge. If you are interested in joining the CE program you can check out the information here: http://www.dbstalk.com/forumdisplay.php?s=&daysprune=&f=171 or you could PM me and I would be more than happy to help you. Unfortunately any more discussion of CE outside of that special forum will need to be deleted.

    Been looking at the RedH site, and it appears they have paused/halted the rollout of 67c. It has not been in the stream since 3/1.

    I don't know this as fact, but there could be a closed group of testers that are authorized to rec'v special builds during the week. 0x067E could be for that purpose. To test,evaluate for possible general release. Of course it could be something entirely different.....

    I would have done the same, yet the system was completely inoperable. The replacement unit is acting up also yet not even close to the previous. Still a pain though, pausing a show, coming back not starting, FF issues, a few lock ups.... DTV is a piece of work.
