    Maybe so, but then I didn't have it either until last night. Then, all of a sudden I had the little bouncing logo. :) If a reboot fixes it I'm good with that. It seems you have to reboot these boxes every now and then anyway.

    I am guessing I will be left holding the bag, on this one. The tech just called me back and asked if I ever entered IAMANEDGECUTTER on the search. I said I had, but since removed it. He said only people who had entered that, should have had the issue of no extras menu. He had me enter IAMANEDGECUTTER NOT again and reboot. Still no extras. I am sure they will tell me I am to blame, for messing with it. Which, guess I am. I saw references to the IAMANEDCUTTER adding to your extras. Put it on and it was nothing I wanted and never used any of it. I left it, as I did not know how to remove it. Have since found the IAMANEDGECUTTER NOT, but I guess too late.

    I got my HR34 in late Feb and have never had the SS pop up when I was watching a program. Hoping my saying this hasn't jinxed things.

    My screen saver kicks on every 5 minutes like clockwork while watching a recorded show. Tried reboot and fixed it for a while. Back to 5 minute reboots again now.

    So, sorry, I've had the HR34 since the beginning of the retail release. It used to stay on the network just fine. Recently, not so much. And, yes, I reset it. Then it happens again. So, yeah, not so much.

    It was fine. Now it's broke. This is clearly due to a recent software update.

    Ditto the screensaver issue.

    Not good.

    I would no longer order it again and I got it free.

    Rebooted last night and all appears well again. We'll see if it comes back.

    Does anyone know if 2 or more HR34's co-exist and be whole-home networked together? For those times that 5 shows at once just won't do. (Football season is around the corner.)

    Follow-up to the multiple HR34 question. Does anyone know how large of an external drive the HR34 will accept? I see that some people have had success with 2TB, but I would like to know if drive systems (that emulate a single large eSata drive) that are larger than 2TB would be compatible. Any clues?

    DirecTV is currently not allowing activation of more than one HR34 on an account.

    2TB is the hard limit.

    A series of issues happened one right after another late last nite. Not sure if these are known glitches or my living room HR34 is about to die.

    At 1am I was bored and just to waste some time waiting for a program to come on went to check my signal strengths but when i went there it wasnt populating any numbers (on the grid style) at all on any of the tuners or sats. Just kept the dashes and didnt show anything. Then I tried to see what it showed on the meters and same thing nothing ...didnt even say 0 just didnt operate. Live tv was fine was watching tv ok.

    Did a system test. The test didnt even get to any percentage and just immediately said "system test failed" and had a diagnostic code and to call customer service but i forgot to write down the code. Test also didnt say what was wrong. Just didnt seem like it run like the software screwed up.

    I just decided to restart the receiver b/c i thought maybe that wuld fix it. Well after the restart all signal meters worked fine.......system test worked and passed. So ok i thought it just needed to be restarted.

    Then like 20minutes later i was in my recorded shows list and was about to choose something recorded on the other dvr in the bedroom then all of a sudden the shows from the bedroom dvr disappeared and the HR34 came up with a message saying it had been disconnected from the network. I went into the bedroom and looked on that dvr and it could see the 34 fine and showed the 34 in the whole home status page. Came back in the living room and when back to my recordings list and boom the recordings from the bedroom dvr were back in the list.

    Then the next thing I noticed david letterman in my series manager didnt tape on the 34. I went into my history it said david letterman wasnt taped b/c of an unexpected error (39). Odd b/c david letterman recorded fine on the bedroom dvr just fine.

    Now i'm looking at my to do list and it's only showing 7 items in it yet my series manager has all my shows in it but all of them are showing a (0) by them yet my guide is all in tact. Not sure if the restart (just one) deleted my to do list and it needs time to populate but dont think so b/c my guide data didnt get flushed.

    Live tv is just fine no problem at all with picture.

    I installed the HR34 this morning and it worked when the tech left. Of course, when I went back to use the thing an hour later I could not get it to respond to the remote. I checked to see that it was set to IR and it was. I have an IR repeater system that allowed me to test the control to verify that it was working and it was. Also, it worked the volume of the plasma so it's pretty clear that the receiver is either not functioning properly or there is a setting in the menu that I have misapplied.

    Any experiences with this out there?

    Originally posted by HobbyTalk: (RE HR34) Problem is mine worked almost perfect when first installed. It just seems to be getting worse with each software update.

    Here's the latest bug (for me) with the new software: Sometimes when I change channels, I get this, i.e. most of the screen white. It's hard to get it to go away.

    Called D* tech support and she took me through a number of steps to determine that the IR sensor was probably malfunctioning. She scheduled a receiver replacement for Sunday afternoon. Meanwhile we determined that the RF worked so I am using that until new unit arrives. In previous receivers I had determined that IR was faster than RF. This was when receivers were very slow in response and I switched to IR to find any improvement in speed that I could find.

    Mine basically did work perfectly originally.

    Now it basically is useless.

    I am about done with it at this point and am likely going to cancel DirecTV, which I've had for more than 10 years.

    I've had mine for two weeks now and it works great. Lightening fast. I just keep hitting the record button and it never says "pick which one you want to give up".

    Didn't know the HR34 was going to cost me $10/month though. They call it Advanced Receiver fee. Have I got that right.

    Just looked it up. I have been paying that fee. Guess it's for the DVR. Now the HR34 looks even better.
