I know those type of things are annoying, although I'm not experiencing most of them. I was having an issue where I exit from a recording and it froze on a black screen for about 30 seconds. And then when using the remote for anything, there was no response for 30 seconds and then it did all of the commands in a row. A reset resolved that. Maybe you should push to have them replace your HR34? Also, to make it a bit easier to read, could you please occasional start a new paragraph, like I did above?
