    ip address is 192.168.2.249, not unusual as the router is 192.168.2.1, there are no other devices set to this I.P. the subnet mask is 225.225.225.0, gateway is 192.168.2.1, dns is 208.67.222.222 (we use Open DNS on the router to filter out inappropriate material for the kids)

    link-local is 169.254.4.42 and does not apear to be able to be changed.

    I'm not sure if it is even a bug, but it is different than the behavior of my HR24.
    HR24: Hitting FF or SKIP when watching Live TV will bring up the progress bar and nothing more... kinda like "hey dummy, you are on live TV"

    HR34: Hitting FF or SKIP actually attempts the FF even on Live TV, causing the video to stutter for a second.

    About 33% of the time when powering on HR34 & TV (XBR65HX929 through Octava HDMI switch) with my Harmony remote I get pink picture. Turning either off and then back on clears it up.

    Same switch/TV had no problems with HR20.

    I've changed my remote to leave the HR34 turned on to see if that helps.

    I care. I want the correct aspect ratio on everything.

    This box is so glitchy that I care more about basic functions right now.

    OMG this is the slowest thing ever. Tonight it just started recording something, can't tell what because a pish of the button takes minutes, seriously minutes to get a response. Tuning channel 1 and hitting red red blue blues yellow green and guide channel down is impossible. As soon as it is done recording my fiance is pulling the plug to reboot it.

    Edit he (Fiance) is taking the laptop to try the IP remote from http://waltzremote.com/ to see if it is any better will post back after I sign back in, since he can not post here. :(

    Ok IP remote is painfully slow aswell. got to guide after the "clear cache" procedure. when it does get to guide, the guide scrolls fast but it takes approx, 1 min 15 seconds from the time guide is pressed until the guide displays, power off button is the same. There is approx. 30 seconds of audio on a channel change but tv picture is black.

    after pulling the powercord twice, deleting what was recording red button reset and redownloading the software all appears to be well, for now.

    Wife complaining about HMC missing multiple recordings again. She bax everything up on our fios stb, just to make sure she's not losing her mind. This past week alone, a 1/2 dozen shows didn't record.

    Also getting a lot of wifey aggro in regards to key presses on remote not responding at all or a big time delay.

    My wife has been singing praises for our D* dvrs over the last 5 years, but the last 5 months with this HMC, the tide is turning towards our QIP 7232. I never thought I would see the day. C'mon D* lets get this right!

    Have left HR34 on since that post. Not once has there been a pink picture.

    Either way, I also have seen the picture flicker on and off and sometimes have a snow overcast look. This also goes away when I turn HR34 off and then on.

    I'm so glad we are all beta testing this product. :nono:

    Sometimes when I turn on my receiver I have no sound.

    Pioneer Elite VSX-36TX coax digital connection to HR34. HR34 is on all the time.

    Comes back by changing channel or turning HR34 off/on.

    Rather than turning it on and off, what would happen if you changed inputs on the hdmi switch and then switched back?

    No recordings in progress. 3 starting top of the hour. A few minutes before the dialog pops up saying it needs to change the channel to record a program. I hit OK. Then it doesn't change channels - and starts 3 recordings on other tuners.

    Manual series recording of off-air channel (AM21N). Not recording. Tried to tune to that channel during recording time - nothing - black screen, no sound. Other off-air channels tune fine.

    Channel is 11-1 (Minneapolis). When looking at dead screen I enter 11 and it won't change channel - goes right back to 11-1.

    Manual period is now over. Recording history says "This episode canceled because of an unexpected error. (3)". Still won't tune to that channel.

    (menu) rebooted - can tune channel fine now. Off-air signal strength is 85% for that channel.

    After reboot mentioned in previous post my Tv says it is getting 480p signal - on all channels.

    My resolutions are set to only 1080i/p. Video is set to native off.

    Tried turning Tv on/off. Tried toggling HDMI switch inputs. Neither fixed.

    It was fixed by temporarily changing native to on and then off again. This seems to be needed after every reboot - at least all I've done.

    It also appears that D* fonts are smaller now.

    Pink screen again. Toggling hdmi switch inputs fixed.

    Also seeing dropouts to black. Not fixed by toggling hdmi switch. Not fixed by power cycling tv either. Only workaround is turning HR34 off/on.

    Sounds like your having hdmi handshake issues, and since you are going through a switch, not sure if there is really anything wrong or not, because the issue could be your switch and how it handles changes and such, and what it reports to the HR34. If you can,I'd try another "test". Go strait form the HR34 into the tv, no switch, and see what happens of the course of about a week. That could help narrow down where this issue maybe originating from.

    Yesterday I programmed my HR34 to do about 6 manual recordings. Each time the recording didn't start until 30 seconds after the minute it was told to start recording. At least that's when the red light came on.

    -->:newbie: ALERT<--

    I recorded WSOP on ESPN yesterday.

    First program 3 hrs, then the final 3 hrs, HR34 asked if I wanted to add additional 30" of recording time, I thought I was recording a recorded program, so I figured, why not try it out for the first time for evaluation,,,

    I watched the first 3 hrs last night, then the other 3.5 hrs this morning, I missed the very end by a matter of minutes, did not see who won-->MY FAULT<--not the HR34.

    So, take my advice, add hrs instead of minutes to any sporting event, so you don't have to freak-out and consider destroying your TV!!

    The HR34 will only ask if you want to extend the time on live programming, not on recorded stuff, so if it asks you the "extension question", it means it is a live event!!
