    If I’m not mistaken, I think there is still different IR codes that you can program for each receiver. Then you would have to set up the Harmony for 2 different activities, one to watch the HR54, and one to watch the C61K.

    Can someone confirm if they still have multiple IR codes?

    True, the amount of 4K content is disappointing. If your TV supports RVU, you can do away with the C61K completely. That is how I am set up. RVU for the occasional 4K program is perfectly acceptable.

    I have been with D* since 1995. Only one D* tech support knew what he was talking about in ALL those years, go figure.

    I'd just got a 4K UHD TV. I started to research the D* HR54-XXX series. My naive question is the differences between the 100-700. Would someone kindly point to the right reference?
    Thanks

    Nothing. Those numbers indicate the actual manufacturer of that particular unit. DTV uses several vendors to produce the receivers.

    I have a C41 mini and HR44, and after the GUI update last week I'm experiencing 20 to 45 seconds for display programing to appear after turning on the C41. I'd love to get 8 seconds now and hope I can get back to the 4-5 seconds. I know this is the HR54/C61K thread but any thoughts on how to fix. Would upgrading to a HR54 and add a C61K to my OLED55C7 4K tv be a solution?

    I moved my HR54 into my big room and I am watching TV from it. I am still getting some stuttering and I can't see the recordings on other DVRs on its playlist.

    Do you use an estata drive with your HR54?

    Why can't I see my HR24 recordings on my HR54? I can see them on the minis.

    Does the C-61K connected to a 4K TV like the LG OLED C7 provide any picture quality improvement over the C-41 when viewing non-4K programming?


    Thanks

    I'm having the opposite problem. I can see them on the HR54 (and one mini) but not on the other mini, with no option on the other mini to even choose to see it.

    I tried that and then I rebooted all the HR24s. The HR54 sees the other DVRs in the whole-home settings but the recordings are not appearing in the playlist.

    24 hours, at least.

    They show up on the minis.

    You have double checked and made sure that the playlist share settings have you seeing all DVRs right?

    If so it’s a bug. It’s been around for a while but I believe there’s at least one firmware somewhere that I saw it got fixed. Not sure if you have that yet or not but I’m sure you will eventually.

    Yes. I have checked that. In fact, I can see the HR24 recordings on the minis, but I can’t see them on the HR54.

    The software is buggy. What’s new?
