DirecTV HR34-700 1080p HD DVR receiver review



Details about software update 0x547 (1351)
Recently our HR34-700 receiver updated itself from software version 0x4CD (1229 in 10 base human numbers) to 0x547 (1351). I posted some photos below, you can see the look and feel of the menus has changed. It looks a bit more modern, with more shadowing and 3D effects. I actually preferred the old menus better – they were a bit easier to read and faster in my opinion. Some users might have thought they were outdated and they probably were, but newer isn’t always better.

Here are the software version screens side by side. The updated version (0x547) is on the left

As I said on page 2, so far it seems the HR34-700 stability has improved. No freezes or navigation quirks have been observed since the new software update, and we haven’t had to reboot yet. We’re definitely pleased with the enhanced stability with software update 0x547.
