    Got the idea from another thread...static IP'ing all four units seems to have resolved this. Prob was the HR2x could see the HR-34, but the HR-34 would see the HR2x (sometimes).

    Let's see if this "solution" lasts.

    Thanks. I have had a static ip now for all my boxes for a week or so, still no luck for me. I thought it would work too.

    Have a new issue with this release, that concerns me. I have a series recording set up for a program called "What Would You Do?". It shows that it is set up to record, but when I check the "List" nothing is recording. I check the info and status bar and it clearly shows the R with the orange circles, but the status bar is green. And the program just prior called "Shark Tank", on the same channel, recorded fine.

    Now I have to worry whether the Genie in my HR34, that I haven't even let out of the bottle, will cause my HR34 to be unreliable? And I'm traveling all next week. When my program is over, I am going to try a reset and hope that resolves it.

    Same problem as reported by others... Whole Home now flaky... sometimes every thing works well, then the HR34 won't see the HR24... but the HR 24 always sees the HR34. Problem started with the latest release. Reboots only seem to work for a day or two.

    I don't know what this means. What does "see each other" mean? I have an HR23, 24, and 34. Thanks.

    curious - what are the settings for the series - both, first run or repeat. If I recall correctly it is picked up form the guide - which sometimes is not accurate

    Yep, I'm seeing this too. More often than not the HR34 cannot see the HR24, but once in awhile it does. Just randomly pops up, nothing I am doing to make the HR34 see the HR24.

    It is set up for first run, but it was the first time that episode ran. Although we both know the info provided by Tribune may not have been correct. It was a program that started at like 8:02, instead of 8:00. Although that hasn't been an issue in the past.

    I think I had the same thing happen with Children's Hospital and NTSF this week. Children's Hospital started at midnight and I noticed the record light was not lit. The episode was in the TODO list but was also in History as cancelled saying the usual "does not match Season Pass settings". I think I did tune the channel while it was on and the recording R was in the banner. NTSF did not record either.

    Thanks wingrider01. If it yields programs that reflect the various KEYWORDS I have on my RECENT SEARCH list, then I might find it useful. Otherwise, I'll have to see. BTW: I am deeply consternated by the fact that the maximum number of KEYWORDs that RECENT searches will contain is only 25. Why not more? I have to use both my HR34 and my HR24 to keep track of all of my KEYWORDS. The KEYWORD search function is very important to me. Thanks.

    Six times my HR34 has frozen up since the 0x05c2 download. Way more than any of the previous software. For example, yesterday I pressed SELECT on a highlighted program on a search page and the HR34 froze for one full minute. With three of the other six freezes, waiting for a while like a minute or so has unfrozen the HR34. On 2 of the freezes I had to reboot. BTW: I'm going to nag and nag DTV until they make my HR34 FFWD > PLAY > BACKSPACE properly like both my HR23 and HR24 do. Thanks.

    Addendum: Another crash today. Surfing the guide and a freeze. Screen turned pink. After 10 minutes the HR34 snapped out of it. No reboot. Then the screen turned pink again with no sound. Gave it 20 minutes. Reboot.

    Having freeze-up issues as well. One yesterday occurred while navigating the guide and took an RBR to recover. The picture was still playing but nothing else worked. It's the second time the guide freeze-up occurred for me (the other one wasn't as severe as it eventually recovered on its own without a reset).

    One today, the picture froze and required switching channels to recover.

    I'm flabbergasted the decision was made to release the software in this state. All to get a feature (that has some significant issues of its own) out and that they don't seem to be advertising yet (at least I haven't seen any). Really disappointing.

    1st time this year that ScoreGuide worked on the ST channels....Maybe it has nothing to do with the Firmware?

    Is anyone else still having HDMI issues with the HR34? I have been running component for months now with no end in sight. My old HR21 worked perfect for 4 years so its not the cable. I've got a new AV receiver on the way. I plan on running HDMI and Component to the TV. If I run HDMI from the HR34 to the receiver will I have an issue pushing that through the component out from the AV receiver to the TV?

    Nor on mine, a new Denon, 1613, and a two year old Samsung plasma. After a few days, though, I decided to run HMDI from the '34 to the TV and optical cable back to the AVR for audio.

    I see no reason to ever again use component in my setup.

    Good luck!
