    Got the new download. Havent had any issues yet other than the guide being in SD as usual after a software download. RBR again. We will see how it operates. Hopefully they have fixed some bugs this time.

    I have never seen this happen on a software download. Maybe the last channel used was SD?

    Left the house this morning and came back and turned on the TV. Got nothing but a blurb saying "No input". Tried to select an input to either HDMI or Component and all I continued to get is a connecting screen and eventually the "No input" screen came back up again. Was unable to go to the menu or anything else as far as that's concerned so I ended up doing a RBR.

    When it finally fired back up I saw that this new software was downloaded at 9:30am this morning.

    Having problems with stuttering voices on OTA channels using the AM21.

    Received the update today and used my HR34 via my Slingbox, since I'm traveling. Seems to be responsive and working fine.

    Same here. Pixelated guide and a reset fixes it. Also still had to redo the 30 second skip.

    Pausing makes the progress bar blink.

    One issue I have that hasn't been fixed is this. When I play a SD non 5.1 audio recording from another one of the HDDVRs on my network there is no audio. I have to go a pick the audio myself to get it work.

    I believe this release fixed the Trick Play feature that was not working previously.

    This morning when I turned it on, I had the "Satellite signal" issue, 771 (? do I remember that right?) message on the screen. It wouldn't go away, and the TV show was playing normally behind the message. I watched it a while, and the screen saver kept coming on.

    I rebooted, and all is back to normal.

    When you FF at 1,2,3, or 4 speeds and then hit play, all the HR boxes (except the HR34) will auto rewind about 10 seconds so you do not overshoot the beginning of next "scene".

    Just so you know, that's what we've been calling "autocorrect" in the issue forums.

    Trickplay is actually using fast forward, rewind, skip/slip, pause, etc. We don't know when it will be fixed, but I'm confident it will be.

    Well, my HR34 is about dead, I'm just mostly getting the 771A, no satellite signal. This started shortly after the 54b upgrade, but may have nothing to do with that. Occasionally the signal pops up and it starts playing, but it quickly goes dead again.

    It looks like my HR34 lasted 3 or 4 weeks, then that's it. :mad:

    DTV is supposed to be out Weds to fix it.

    Have you tried just resetting it? It also may be an alignment issue of some sort, could have nothing to do with your hr34...

    Yes, I've done that twice, and when I called DTV they had me do that. Since I've posted, it's been not working at all in the mornings, and it seems to work in the evenings. If it keeps up that trend, that will be good, as they are supposed to be out Weds morning. When it's not working, I did a signal test, and I just get 0's all the way across the screen. When it works, I get upper 90's, mostly 99's and even some 100's.

    When DTV had me reset it, as it does it's long bootup process, it was giving me the error even as it was booting back up. She had me do some diagnosis test, and at the end it said nothing was wrong - she was surprised at that.
