    Yes. Usually it rolls out first to Mountain time, followed by Pacific, Central, then finally Eastern.

    Just wait for it.

    I am just not having luck with directv lately. I work up yesterday to the new software...and a completely reset HR34. Everything gone, all recordings, all series links, all preferences, everything. First time I turned the HR34 on yesterday it told me that whole home dvr had been activated...I wondered why I was getting that message and then discovered everything had been reset...any thoughts on why this happened? I have not done a menu reset in weeks and there is no way I managed to hit reset everything in the menu...

    As discussed on the MRV thread, I continue to have nonstop problems with receivers dropping off the network and recordings pausing frequently.

    My parents are visiting from out of town, and asking why in the world I put up with this terrible reliability. I didn't have a answer....

    It may have been a bug in the past, which i didn't have.... until now. Wife and I sat down to watch the 2 Hour Hells Kitchen..No Dice. Black screen. Seems i was premature giving Kudos... Laag is back also. Hope the pause continue issue doesn't begin again or I am going to absolutely go postal. Why cant they fix something without trading it with other issues. Come on DTV, enough is enough..... Damn!!

    Got the new software update and although I never had any issues since install, it seems to be faster when toggling between stations.

    I am always skeptical about new SW but I would wait a couple days to see how it reacts, since its new and needs to populate.

    I still do not have this update as of 7:43PM eastern time on March 14th. Has anyone else on the east coast received this?

    So I moved recently from 2 HR24's to an HR34. I love it. But one thing I've noticed (ON THIS RELEASE; but not sure if on prior releases because I didn't have the prior release for very long) --

    When I fast forward at 2x or 3x, it sometimes skips images more than the HR24 did. Meaning, I do not see it come out of commercial until much later than the HR24's. What used to happen is I'd hit play on the HR24 out of a commercial after a 3x FF, and it would skip back to right about where the commercial ended. Sometimes it would go a teeny too far, but that would be correctable with a single replay click. AND, and this is key, when I missed it before I would have actually seen the images ending the commercial, I just wouldn't have reacted quickly enough. NOW the images just never appear. The first images are well after the commercial ends -- I need to push the reply button about 3 times or sometimes even 5-8 times to get back to the end of the commercial.

    This is frustrating.

    Anyone else notice this?:confused:

    oenophile, it has been noted previously that the HR34 doesn't scan as well as other DVRs. It's my feeling that this new release is actually better than previous versions in x2 and x3 but I will also agree it doesn't operate the same as a HR2x DVR.

    I find the 4x scan on a HR34 practically useless. Again, it's better now than with previous software. In the past you might end up ± 7 minutes from where you wanted to end up when you dropped out of 4x. Now it stops pretty close to the last image on the screen but at that scanning speed, that's not good enough. About the only time 4x can be used is a golf match. You'll end up on the hole the leaders are on but good luck finding the putt you wanted to watch.

    You would think that the implementing the scanning code would be a relatively cut and dry matter by now but apparently it isn't.

    Exactly whast I've posted on previously. I've also found that it's even worse when using MRV with the HR34 as the client and my HR24-500 as the server....the "jump back" is non existent....sometimes even going forward

    Thanks. What a bummer. Wonder if it is a patent/license issue or if it is a hardware problem. It simply can't be lack of programming code/skills -- they've done this before and the o/s is the same, so that shouldn't be an issue.

    Well, I guess I can confirm the issue is still present in this release.

    Don't quite understand what is up with my HR34. The latest firmware shows to be 0x05FD. Have I missed the last two updates, or is this not a nationwide rollout? Anybody know what is up with that?

    Must be a SLOW rollout. I rec'd the update 067C, a couple weeks ago, then last week,on the 11th I think, I rec'd 067E, which I am currently on. 05FD still shows in the stream, but overnite 067E was in the stream. Can only assume you'll get it when your number is up. There is no way to force it to download if it is not in the stream.

    My HR34 got 67e @ 2:51 A. M. today.
    First observation is that the TO-DO was completely in tact @ 6:00 A. M.
    For quite a long time after a RBR the box would take several hours to repopulate the TO-DO list.

    Who knows, if a menu RBR is forced it may still take hours to repopulate.

    Also My DirecTV (blank) says comeback later and we'll have shows listed or something like that. Not a problem, never use it just pass through going to another function.

    It appears that this 67e is now the true NR. It is still in the stream for downloads at this time.

    Since you're in the Eastern time zone you'll be the last to get it.
    Apparently it just hit Central last night, so you will be next.

    The one thing I really like about 0x067e is that it is so fast. I was so surprised. For me, the problems that remain from previous software versions are:

    1. That infernal prompt when you change channels that says TO RECORD THIS EPISODE, PRESS R ON YOUR REMOTE is still there. Try to get it DTV -- I say that if my RECORDING TIPS are turned off, that annoying prompt should not appear! It only slows things down because you have to press a button on the remote to get it to disappear before the next remote command will work.

    2. The highlight still often jumps off to the left to cover the station info when I scroll up or down through the guide. There is absolutely no reason for that.

    3. Sometimes the FFWD > PLAY > AUTO-REWIND feature works, sometimes it doesn't. In fact, most of the time it doesn't. I wish it worked 100% consistently like it faithfully does on my HR23 and HR24.

    4. Sometimes FFWD produces a freeze frame.

    5. Sometimes when I go from the tuner to a recording and then back to the tuner, the tuner's buffered memory will be erased.

    Sounds like your remote is on the fritz. I'm not seeing any of these issues on my HR34. Do you have another remote you can try?
