    These are the triangles that lead to the VOD channels, correct? Does it do anything else? Is there a new PIP function with this software? I thought a post gave that impression.

    Thanks

    My issues are the following:

    The box seems to lose HDMI connectivity whenever I start a new show from the list of recordings, so I have to turn everything off and back on --then it works fine.

    When I want to delete a show from a future date, it always acts as if the recording has already started, even if it is days in the future.

    The dual tuners don't work any longer. One tuner will always stick.

    So far, I hate this update.

    The HR34 has 5 SAT tuners, not 2.

    Edit: After more testing what was locking up PIP was to tune to the same channel on the full screen as the PIP window (this worked before s/w update). Shortly after tuning to the full screen the PIP window will freeze every time. Work around is to skip channel on full screen that is currently in the PIP window, works ok otherwise.

    Yes, those are the triangles that indicate a channel has VOD content. They aren't connected to PIP.

    Ummmm, Yes, I know. :eek2:

    The dual live buffers don't work properly.

    You're referring to 'Double Play', correct? I used it on my HR34 yesterday during football and didn't notice a problem. What are your symptoms?

    Yesterday I found my HR34 having the same channel on both sides of Double Play. I had Double Play set up to allow me to switch between a football game and the Ryder's Cup matches, only to find golf on both sides. When I tried to fix it, I ended up with golf on both sides. My situation, along with another poster who experienced the same thing on PIP, is being discussed in this thread.

    I just got a new HR34 with 2 HR24s installed. I activated Genie but, 3 days later nothing is recording with Genie. Is this normal.?

    Since the update, sometimes when I use double play, the show on the tuner that I am not currently watching locks up.

    I hit the down arrow from one show that is working fine, and when I get to the other channel, it's stuck on a static image. So I have to change the channel on that tuner -- losing what was there.

    It's fussier when I am using one or more of the three other tuners for other recordings.

    I hope that the next update solves some of these problems since they mostly just started w. this current software.

    IMO, Genie should never interfere with viewing. Genie should simply quietly give up one (or more if necessary) of the tuners it is using without a peep.

    What the heck is Genie?

    BTW: I too am annoyed as hell with the "Too record this program" prompt. If I don't use EXIT to lose it, or if I don't wait for it to go away by itself, the next function button I press on the remote while the prompt is still being displayed won't work unless I press it twice. The first press only loses the stupid, unnecessary prompt. Thanks.

    I'm watching a recorded video and I press the FFWD button and the HR34 mysteriously switches to the tuner all by itself. Same thing happened once when I was going frame-by-frame through a recorded video. Thanks.

    Yesterday I was watching a program on the tuner and the HR34 mysteriously switched to another channel. I wasn't even holding the remote.

    I couldn't agree more. I'd go so far as saying Genie should never comandeer more than 2 tuners at a time either.

    I was told this will be solved shortly. Until then, are you like me and had either none or or just one Series Recordings? I only had one on my HR34. I hadn't transfered my Series Manager settings over to my HR34 from my other DVRs yet.

    The solution was to set ups some series recordings. I put in 10 of them and the "To record this episode" prompt went away.

    In other words, the problem was ameliorated.



    :sure:

    - Whole Home is spotty at best. HR34 can't see content on two of the three other HR2x units and only one of the HR2x can see the 34. Restarts don't seem to fix it, nor does going through the network setup.

    - Actions pressed on the remote are "ignored" on occasion, as if the line-of-sight were blocked. Commands are not queued up. For example when trying to FF it does not FF and the progress bar stays up until control comes back 15-20 seconds later.

    - Hitting play from the recorded list makes the preview in the upper left go black but the sound or the playing TV continues, and it takes sometimes as long as 5-10 seconds for the recorded show to start.

    - Same as above where I try to cancel something from the to-do list and I'm told it's already being recorded.

    - Genie has no clue what I like to watch. About as wrong as it can get.

    Buggy.

    For you whole home issues, you may want to make sure all connections are secure. I had previous intermittent issues (before I had an HR34) where the boxes would lose sight on occasion and found the coax and worked its way loose from the DECA boxes. Resecuring took care of the issue.

    I've been having a problem with my HR34 not recording sunday night football (SNF) via a manual recording for the past 3 weeks. It also cancelled my recording of SNF on my HR24 for some odd reason. I don't suspect that this is related to the current firmware (since the problem predates the current firmware version). Is there a list of known bugs and work-arounds for the HR34 that someone can point me to via a linky please? Thanks in advance.

    chris_h, this thread along with the thread on the previous version of the firmware would be your two best lists.
