    I've been getting lockups every day since 109F was released and have noticed that many others are saying the same thing. Before the release I have only had to reset each of my R15 only one time each (i've had them since early Dec). I've had to reset two of the every day now since 109F was released. I wanted to get an idea of how many people are experiencing this. I'm not asking how many people have ever had lockups, just how many have been seeing more lockup since the release of 109F a week ago and are still on 109A.

    Last count
    15 lockups
    2 slower responses but no lockups

    FYI, I have already sent an email to my contact... to see if this is just a very bad coincidence, or what is going on...

    I will let you know... but please... If you have seen an increase in lockups and needs to reset since last friday... Please post.

    The r-15 keeps freezing on me, almost every single day since they started sending the upgrades. I once had two lockups within a couple of hours.

    I was also not doing anything special, just watching a recorded show... :-/


    And before that, no freeze ups whatsoever. not one.

    They need to push the 109F update to everyone ASAP. From what someone posted here about the rollout, my area will not be getting it until after 2/21, thats still at minimum 5 days away if it comes on the first day.

    Earl reported he got it on 2/10/06

    1 other on 2/12/06

    More on 2/14/06 for what it's worth.

    For 7 days of updates it's really quiet.:confused:

    Well where up to at least 9 people including myself. I'm not sure why they don't just push it everyone, more so because it looks like it's causing issues for the non ugraded boxes? I don't understand how updates on these thing work but why don't they don't push it to everyone? If someone buy a new R15 after the 109f update they are going to get it right away so it's still going to be in the stream so it can't be that.

    Well, the theory goes, release to a few to start, wait for the CSR's phones to start ringing, if they don't, open the gates a bit wider, if all stays calm, let it fly.

    Probably will have the same problem until the updated to 109F for this seems to have to do with software and if the new one still has 109a it will probably lockup also. I know thats probably not wanted to hear but for that I am sorry.
