    I have an HR44 with a Samsung LED tv setup as Ethernet RVU. Since the original install of about a month ago I get random freezing, about 1 or 2 an hour for about 3-8 seconds each. Are there any router settings that need to be set to to improve the freezing? Would QOS be of any help? I have a a Netgear WNDR4500 router.

    Same problem as OP. Plus I get "RVU server not found" when turning on the TV 75% of the time and " location not authorized" 75% of the time as well. Did it on the last tV FW and the new FW I just installed this week. Hopefully the new genie software fixes this or I'm gonna call and try to get a new box. HR34 on full Ethernet connections with Samsung ES6500
