    Have a HR-54 and a HR-24 on whole home setup, after the latest update on the 54 last month, speedtest doesn't show correct speed, VOD on the HR-24 not working it says internet is connected, VOD on the 54 still works fine.

    Update. I have a wifi extender to improve wifi coverage to the other side of my house. The signal from the extender at my HR44's location is actually a tad stronger than from my main router, but it is less reliable so I'd never connected my HR44 to it. Right after my previous post, I connected to the extender to see what would happen.

    I went over a week without it dropping the wifi signal even once, whereas I'd lose it a couple of times a day before. VOD and full search functions returned. WHOOPEE!

    So, yesterday I switched back to my original wifi connection on my main router to see if the problems would return, and have now gone over 24 hours without a hitch. If this holds I'll be delighted but mystified. I'm still on the same firmware verson.

    I'm guessing there was something not quite right in the wifi setting that wasn't getting reset when reconnecting to the same net, or even when doing a complete network reset, but got wiped out when connecting to a different net.

    Throughout it all the speed test has remained pegged at zero, so I agree that function got farged in the latest update.
