    Would someone else please check out their "30" sec slip ? I am getting 3 seconds consistently. When I hit the button 6 times, it's 18 seconds. I've tried it both live and on several different channels. although it shouldn't matter. Well, I guess the R15 is consistent about something.:nono:

    I just checked 30 second slip on two R15-500's, one with 10E8 and one with 10F1. It worked properly on both machines.

    It works fine on both my R-15's. One does seem faster than the other though.

    Well, I rebooted; I'm up to 9 seconds per hit.

    This might be stupid BUT, you know its 30 sec of content that gets 'slipped' in 4-5 secs right? :confused:

    I thought DirecTV had said that the 30 second slip was suppose to take 2 seconds, i know that is one of the complaints that i have. It always seems to take 3-5 seconds which in turn takes up to 30 seconds to slip over 6 commercials.

    I totally agree. R15 slip is not nearly as functional as a true 30 sec skip. They could sure speed it up to say, 1.5sec and I don't think there would a complaint. The current advertised "2.5" sec slip is actually 3.5 sec. Timed it many many times to verify. It is one of the the MOST important aspect of dvr technology and DirecTV has missed the boat!

    In order to zip through 30secs in 3 secs, it would have to FF at 10xx. It isn't.

    The 30 second slip works fine here. It takes about 3 seconds to go through 30 seconds of content, so yeah, roughly 10x speed. If a press only takes you 3-4 seconds ahead, something's wrong.

    YES! I hit mine 8 times.. .and it zooms through 4 minutes of commercials in approximatley 20-25 seconds TOTAL.

    That's the way it SHOULD work... although I hate it..

    (I miss terribly DISH's instant skip. I could get through 4 minutes in no more than 2 seconds.)

    I am on version 10F1.
    I got the same problem but it doesn't seems to happen all the time but most.
    Sometimes it looks as thought the skip back button only takes you back a single frame literally.

    Yeah, that was nice. I also liked their 10 sec jump back much better.
