In fact, it's probably the cause of the issue because CC and Audio share the same button on the "Enhanced" remote..
Since Firmware Flash actually does nothing to change any IR codes from Remote, but just re-maps what they do, the Only Protection (or rather a work-around) would be a Programmable, Teachable Remote with Macro capability.
My old (I paid $20 back in 2011) Sony RM-VLZ620
is a little tedious to teach, but is a deal at $15 delivered from Amazon Prime. Lots of other choices as well.
Best choice is to avoid 124R unless you feel a need for the extra internet channels or want to use a 3 TB or larger Hard Drive or have 114R stability issues (which may carry forward into 124R anyway if they're related to WiFi, LAN or HD compatibility or another factor). That 123R sure wasn't around long and I'm surprised you have to wait so long for 125R.
I really want to thank you and everyone here who gave me the idea and guided me through blocking my DVR+ from ever seeing that 124R (or 125R etc.).
I have the 124R USB stored elsewhere, but the more I learn about it, the less I would ever want to install it. I already have several spare one TB compatible HD's and have far better sources for those online 'channels' already.
My DVR+ has been working perfectly now for six weeks+ and I feel very fortunate to have that 'secret' 115R Firmware it was delivered with. That seems to have taken care of the reported 114R freeze or lockup problems without adding any 'issues' or improvement's I wouldn't want.
My biggest concern now is how to share one WiFi Adapter's Ethernet cable feed between my DVR+ and my Pioneer Tuner/Amp. My latest thought might be this Ethernet Switch:
In playing around and trying to force a share without the proper hardware, I've noticed that once you really pi$$ off the DVR+ on the subject, it does not quickly restore an Ethernet LAN.
Warm reboot (hold power button down for red/blue flash)
or Cold reboot (pull the power for more than six seconds)
does not re-establish LAN.
It just takes patience,
perhaps it's when Rovi asks for future program info or something, never seen it go longer than an hour without the middle Green LED on my NetGear WiFi Router indicating restoration, but could imagine that if it were a new source IP Address it needed to deal with, that it might take several hours to work it all out.
Perhaps simply removing Pioneer connection prior to bringing DVR+ out of standby will keep it happy
Worst loss from that was the Guide having no program information for 14th day or 13th & 14th day until its LAN was working again.
I had never even tried adding LAN to my Pioneer before, but since it required the exact same WiFi Adapter that I bought for the DVR+, giving it a try opened up such great musical possibilities
