    We have had these DTV DVRs now for about five full months. At first the horrid interface and terrible performance really rankled us. Now we are being "trained" to accept the unacceptable. If only the TiVo interfaced 22 had MRV. One wonders if the designers and software writers ever truly used a DVR.

    Just wanted to reiterate what's already been said.
    laggy guide
    glitchy guide
    30skip issues
    overall laggyness

    reminds me of my series 1 Tivo :) I'm looking forward to the next update.

    Thanks, but that's a fix for the DIRECTV remote and I'm using an AR Xsight remote. Its strange, but I that issue hasn't happened since the day I posted it. I guess its working like my HR22's worked in the past. Sometimes they worked fine, other times there were delays. No rhyme or reason to it. And I'm glad I haven't had anything like what texasmoose is experiencing.

    Had an ongoing issue with the "54" SW. My harmony power on order was my plasma, then the marantz, and then the HR34, which led to a pink tinted screen on EVERY power up. When resetting the box it has other kinds of issues that require me cutting the marantz on and off to get images.

    Recently I bypassed the marantz and all is well straight to the display, so my fix was changing the power up order. I now have the harmony turn on the marantz, then the plasma, and finally the HR34, all is well.

    Just an FYI to anyone.

    My HR34 just powered down and says new software found, 054C is being downloaded! Kind of funny that this happens at 8am I would think. Was this pushed last night?

    I flipped it on this morning and it seemed a bit snappier; so much so that I actually went to check and see if new firmware had loaded overnight. I hope it wasn't a temporary thing.

    It's in the stream now, you'd get it if your pushed it. Most likely you'll get it overnight though.

    Downloaded mine with a force, booting now. Still had pink screen before running rcvr self check, and lose complete video during 1 of 2 checking satellite.

    Is 54c just still minor improvements from 54b?

    Hopefully the guide is better. I was still getting funky scrolls on 54b.

    Yes, the progress bar isn't smaller, yet.
