    Been playing with the 30 sec slip and this is what I've noticed (other than my above post). I never used bookmarks before but set some up at commercial breaks on a 30 min show to play/test this new feature. Bookmarks seem to be rendered useless, cant figure out how to jump to or back to a bookmark. The users that use this will be upset. The good thing is you CAN interrupt or stop the 'slip' so if you hit 'slip' 6 times and see your show started early you can basically hit any button (your preference) to stop it, stop, jump back, play, pause, etc..

    Thanks. Did your DTV guy mention if it was adjusted or is it a wait and see?

    I never tried bookmarks... Honestly... I found it to be one of those features that wold be a real "niche" usage... but I will ask if there is away around it.

    Lock, most likely i'm asking a stupid question, but from what you have said, you have tried the "traditional" method for jumping to a "bookmark" i.e, holding down the FF button and no response?

    Bookmarks weren't jumped to by using the ->| button anyway...you hold down FFWD or REWIND, or use the Quick Menu (hitting "MENU", then "BOOKMARKS").

    :lol: .......I couldn't get the nerve to attempt a lookup in the manual. The method stays refreshed in my old mind, as my wife insists on "bookmarking" everything of interest. Drives me nuts. :eek2:

    Hey LockMD, no panic. :lol: .........just wanted to make sure i didn't have to try to explain it to the "boss" of the family, as to why jumping to her beloved "bookmarks", doesn't work anymore. What a relief. :D

    You don't use the skip forward button for bookmarks, you use the ff button if I remember correctly. Skipping to bookmarks should still work.

    Edit: oops, I see I was only about the millionth person to point this out, sorry.

    No improvement here. Active or myvod will still erase the live buffer.


    Well, I screwed up. I checked this bug early this morning and it appeared to be fixed. NOPE. Same idiotic bug happened twice when I tested it tonight. Sorry to give bad info.

    First, I wanted to start by saying I'm newly registered, but definitely not new. I had my R15 since they first rolled out, but it hasn't been in active duty since February. D* sent me a Tivo to hold me over until I was satisfied, and finally after this update I have decided to reactivate. I have been lurking and waiting until there was an update that enticed me enough to jump back in, and the 30 second slip.

    Does anyone have any definitive info yet on whether or not the series link issues have been fixed? That was my main reason for temporarily retiring the R15, so I sure hope it works better now.

    Hope to help find those bugs!

    Can anyone with the new version check something for me?

    does pressing ff and the "30 second slip" button take you to the end of the recording?

    Thanks!

    No, that won't work.
    To go to the end you have to press and hold down the 30 sec slip button for about 2 seconds.
