I know we should not have to do these things and the R-15 should just work but what work arounds have people found to help them do similiar things until the next update is released ? For instance someone posted the search feature does not always find everything unless you search only by keyword. So the search workaround is to always use the "keyword search". To avoid duplicate recordings and SL's that do not work properly, the SL workaround is to use a "manual recording". To avoid the to do list and history lockups, the workaround is to "avoid using them" for the time being. (I know I know) No 30 second skip or the FF does not compensate, the workaround is to "use the replay button when your FFing and not the play button to stop it". The R-15 is slow to update things properly and downloads the guide slow, the workaround is to turn it off anytime you are not using it. The Caller ID used to work but now doesnt, the workaround is to empty the CID log. If your R-15 acts strange or starts to run sluggish, pull the plug and restart instead of using the reset button. It clears more things that way. If your using the 02468 code to download an update, only press it ONCE and do it FAST as soon as the Hello screen appears. Then wait.
