    Just currious what problems/bugs were fixed with new software update (109).

    There a pretty extensive list of problems and bugs in another thread. How many have been fixed?

    This may help those thinking about getting an R15.

    I don't have the upgrade yet, but the only thing I've heard is it's suppoed to have addressed some of the issues with FF. No compensation, but maybe a little more reacitive when dropping out of FF.

    I'll see when I get home tonight if I have the update.

    It was intended to fix the caller ID issues, and it seems that in addition to that, they fixed some problems with resuming play after using FF.

    I thought my unit had a bad LED until I noticed the software upgrade.

    I saw that too and wondered if it (not that they would think of it) might go red when 2 shows are recording, thus telling "you to watch a prerecord, I'm busy".

    LMAO I kept trying to figure out what a yellow light meant. I thought maybe I had a message or something. Glad i'm not going nuts and other people have it too.

    How "Bright am I" :p .......My 10 yr. old son had to point it out to me. I never paid much attention to it and argued that it had always been yellow. :D

    it sure didnt help the video dropouts for me on pre recorded stuff, some programs willl play back fine, but others will play for about 5 minutes then the video will go out, then is shows the ff going but it is stuck and not going no where, but the audio is still there, i mostly notice it on movies that i record :(

    why would they make the light yellow? It's harder to see in sunlit room.

    I can't notice any difference in my ff to play speeds. The caller id did work today though....

    If Direct is serious about staying with this I hope they hurry up & get it right!

    I liked the RED light better! But, that's just me. . . Or is it?

    Yes/No, if they were brilliant enough (Ha) to use orange for one recording and another color (oh, say red) to signify both tuners recording, that might be useful.
    Or not.
