Ok guys, I got a HR34 2-3 months ago and this thing is crap. First off any time I pause a show I get no sound for 8 secs. Next the gui is way slow vs HR24. I press guide and it takes 3-5 secs to display and at least another 5-10 secs to move up a set of channels. I can press down one channel and it takes up to 5 secs, most of the time I think it did not receive the command and I end up pushing it twice. The guide is slow and just buggy. It also misses recordings every once and a while. I just dont know what to do. Should I slick it back to factory or call directv and ask for a new one? Does anyone else have these issues. Also i'm not running beta's.
