Discussion in 'DIRECTV SD DVR/Receiver Discussion' started by ISWIZ, Feb 28, 2006.

How do you grade the R15 for the first quarter

  1. A - Above average, the best, I wish I had invented it.

    0 vote(s)
    0.0%
  2. B - Better than most, a little hiccup here and there.

    2 vote(s)
    2.9%
  3. C - Could be improved, has some minor difficulties.

    10 vote(s)
    14.7%
  4. D - Did not impress me, too many problems.

    30 vote(s)
    44.1%
  5. E - Even if they gave it away, I’m not sure I’d take it.

    25 vote(s)
    36.8%
  6. F - Foolishly released way before it was ready, a complete disaster.

    I am curious what you mean by this, since you said "channels" (plural)

    Thanks

    On the menu it lists previous channels. Select the previous channel button/bar and a drop down shows the last channels you have looked at. You can move through the list and select anyone and it will take you there.

    I just want to say that everyone can look back BEFORE my posts that a user :confused: "had asked a question" about "what features the R-15 has that the DirecTiVos dont". I meant go to the DirecTivo forum HERE so maybe the activity would pick up some. Remember this forum was recently created for R-15 discussion, if all DVR talk was allowed then there is no sense in having separate forums.

    I simply answered that question or that was my intention. FINALLY something good to say about the R-15 and instead of adding features to my list or maybe finding something I said that others might not have noticed before I see nothing.

    This might have turned into the first positive R-15 thread in a loooooonnnnggggg time and everyone knows we need some good things to say.

    85% with a "C" or less with one more day to go. Come on all you "A's" and "B's" let's hear from you:listenup:

    Current poll numbers:

    A 2 2.56%
    B 9 11.54%
    C 25 32.05%
    D 22 28.21%
    E 0 0.00%
    F 20 25.64%

    This means a majority (53.85%) give it a D or below.

    If the R15 were a college student, its GPA would be 1.37.

    True, but the R15 was released prior to 1/06 so this is really a little more than a quarter of service.

    Earl,

    I hope those contacts at DTV are paying attention to what this group thinks. Come June 1st we'll find out I guess. Surely by then they can make a passing grade:nono2:

    Provided that option "F" will change, since "technically"... if you voted that way today, nothing they do for the next there months will change that...

    :)

    I too hope, and I am fairly confident, that three months from now... things will be much brighter.
