I have native off. 1080 p is the only box checked. I had twc before I made the shift to dtv. I don't regret it at all but the channel changing was a lot faster and my biggest gripe is the skip back. I don't get why dtv doesn't give you the option to disable it like twc.
You want to check all the resolutions your display can handle. Also, go to search and do a keyword search for 30SKIP. That should active the skip ahead feature on the remote...no need to fast forward ever again.

I have a few problems with my HR34 directv genie.

1. The genie is getting really laggy and has periods of unresponsiveness. Fast forward will get stuck for a certain amount of time until any input is accepted again. Any menus or guides can be stuck and any input is unresponsive. Any ideas on this?

2. I am having problems with the directv app and the geniego. I believe my setup is correct. I have 1 HR34 (i think its a 34, will check when i get home) genie and 2 c(will have to get model # when i get home) clients. The directv installer said he setup the genie on the network. I am having problems connecting to the genie (app says it is not found) as well as any of my recorded shows.

My 34 (the big one, the 44 is slimmer) is and has been quite wonky for some time now. I can get it switched out but will lose my saved shows. I'm trying to work through them and be free by mid Sept when my contract is up and do a whole new package, for a resign.

The problem with your HR34 is a widely-reported problem, apparently a software bug. Hopefully it will be fixed soon.
