    When using double play the 2nd tuner shows black screen on all HD channels. Analog channels play OK.

    Good point. Hopefully in time the speed will improve.

    In my first problem [above] with this version, I mentioned doggyness to their tech and he had me turn off scrolling and confirm that native was off. It seems these two features, if either is selected, will turn Genie into a lazy dog.

    A reset fixed the issue.

    No joy. I've already read of several reports of people having the C31 black/grey screen issue after the 0x5D4 update. I had it myself on my units tonight. :(

    So far I've not seen any improvement with 0x05d4.

    1. For a lot of channel changes, it still shows that TO RECORD THIS EPISODE graphic. You must lose it before your remote responds to the next command. I say this graphic should not appear if you have RECORDING TIPS turned off, which I do.

    2. The blue highlight still jumps off to the left of the screen when I scroll down through the guide. Very annoying.

    3. Worst of all for me and my particular HR34, the FFWD > PLAY > AUTO-REWIND function still does not work properly. At first if did. In fact, it rewound way too far. Then it started to AUTO-BACKSPACE about the right amount of time. Now, most of the time anyway for me and my HR34, it hardly AUTO-REWINDS at all. Certainly not nearly enough to compensate for my cat-like reflexes.

    4. Sometimes when I go into FFWD, especially speed setting 4, the picture just freezes.

    5. So far, one (only one (ha ha)) lock-up. Had to hit the red button.

    Finally, this is new to all of the HR34 releases, i.e. never happened before for me, the first time I recorded something with 0x05d4, when I hit the STOP button, no dialog box appeared. You know the box that says KEEP RECORDING, CHANGE RECORDING SETTINGS, and STOP. I had to hit (its all I know how to do) the RECORD button about twenty five times before the dialog box appeared.

    I had to reboot mine once. Said the resolution was not supported?

    I have mention in threads on other software versions a problem getting the "upgrade". My HR34 hangs at the first attempt to download the software at the searching for software screen with 0% downloaded. Takes a red button reset to start the box again. The second attempt at the upgrade has always gone successfully.

    With this version the box is hanging every time at the searching for software screen. 3 times so far. I am having to reboot the box each time I turn it on.

    I've had AV sync issues twice now while playing back pre-recorded programs. I stop and restart playback and it clears up.

    *Still* can't see folders on the DVR via DirecTV2PC.

    I keep seeing comments over on the DirecTV forums that they supposedly know about the issue and a fix is in place..... I guess that'll happen anout the same time as a nomad app for the android system.

    Apparently I'm the only one in TV Land that cares but the bug that causes the small PIP to freeze if you accidentally tune the main window to the same channel.

    After next week they will have a whole year to fix this because when the NFL goes away there isn't anything else that I will use PIP for.

    Is this true if you are flipping between recorded versions of the games?

    This version has been awful for my HR34, it is practically nonresponsive when I am trying to browse through my List. It is so bad I am thinking about swapping it out for one of my HR24's that I rarely use. Then I will try the HR34 again when a new version comes out. I have never had this much trouble with a version, and I have had the HR34 since last December when it came out.

    I guess I was subliminally suggesting you try same. Both as a test and as a temporary workaround.

    Make sure two features - Native and Scrolling are turned off. Especially Scrolling.

    And for the record, the software for the HR34 hast been crappy since day one. And all they do, is it just keep adding on to bad code.

    Yup. Same issues. Locked up black screen with just the clock in top right corner. Took three days to lock after a red button reset.
    On the plus side, response times seem quicker when accessing the guide and list. It took three to four days for a reset instead of every other day. Time will tell if this is a continuous bug.
    However, a new issue at least on my DVR since this update is rewinding and forwarding a live program when recording. No response at all, just the bong. The only way to clear is turn off on the c-31.

    When I bring up the guide, it's very laggy scrolling. The hr34 is over all laggy coming from the hr24.
