I just went from Whole Home DVR to one HR34 plus a Genie client. I love it. The HR34 is a very good device in my opinion. I have just one quirky issue with it. When I first take it from standby to actually being on, the first time I use the remote, the HR34 will lock up for about 30 seconds. After that, it functions perfectly for the rest of the day. Is this a known issue? It's not really a biggie now that I know that it will do this...and it only ever does it that one time when I first talk to it.
