I am signing up for directtv. Is the H34 worth the additional $99?

IMHO without a doubt. The five tuners are so much better than just 2 even if it only benefits you occasionally.

That said, you shouldn't have to pay $99. Just specify that you want the HR34 during your signup and tell them it's essential to your signing a contract. They gave me mine after I had the HR24 for a week and called them while still in the 14 day cancellation period.

Even if you have to spend the extra $99, it will be the best 100 bucks you've ever spent.

I would like to take part in the CE downloads. I just got my HR-34 yesterday and, of course, it already has the HD GUI so do I still need to do the procedure outlined in the first post in this thread to get the CE software or is it a different process since I already have the HD GUI?

The CE program isn't tied to just the HD GUI. They are essentially beta versions of the software. What you get are the fixes and new features that they are working on in between national releases. The procedure is the same as stated in the first post (and is the same for all of the other receivers also). This thread is specific to the HR34, though.

I was going to do the CE download for my HR-34 but the procedure listed on the first page of this thread is different than what I have to do with my HR-34. I have the HD GUI so the menu options are different. Is this what I do now: Menu >Settings & Help>Settings>Reset>Reset Everything? I just want to make sure that's correct before I proceed. Thanks.

Sorry, didn't think about the change.

With the HD GUI it's Menu>Settings&Help>Settings>Reset>Reset Receiver

There's no point in me doing this tonight right? I have to do this on either a Fri or Sat night when there's a CE available?

Right, only on Friday or Saturday. Sorry you missed it. Good update, it really smoothed out and speeded up everything. Guide and menus are now very responsive.

Guess I'll have to wait until next Friday. Thanks for the quick responses though. I appreciate it.
