I have an HR44/500 running 0xbf4 dated Wednesday 9/7. I can't recall if these issues started happening immediately after the last update, but there have been increasing number of issues and multiple red button resets haven't helped. 1. When paused, I am getting an audio pop through my soundbar. I've seen several posts about similar issues, but not necessarily on this receiver and software version. Started happening about 2 or 3 weeks ago. I use digital Audio output from my TV to the sound bar. 2. Receiver has been getting really slow at responding to input from the remote. I'm at 61% on disk space. 3. Resolution issue #1. I'm running at 720p and/or 1080i and yet the guide resolution is blurry. Not crisp at all. Tried changing out HDMI cables and nothing changed. 4. Resolution issue #2. On many shows, it's like faster moving scenes are ghosting or getting pixelated around the image. Hard to explain, but if I watch the same show from a different DVR in the house (HR24 for example) the issue doesn't exist, and I've replaced the HDMI cables, so It seems it has to be related to the HR44 itself. 5. Sometimes during playback, the receiver will lock up while trying to fast forward or skip, and becomes unresponsive. I have no option but to red button reset the dvr. What I'm wondering is if these issues may be related to the latest software build or if I need to call and have the dvr replaced? Has anyone been experiencing these types of issues with their HR44?
