This is most certainly an issue with the R15. What the rep actually did, is any body's guess. I can personally verify from my experience with my unit, that i have not been successful in getting this to work either. Now, as to whether this happens on all units, i don't know, but of the posts i have read, that reference this issue, it doesn't work.

known issue with r15, no set to to rslv, issue was the unit was supposed to be able to detect all programs for the series link regardless of channel, however as we all know it didn't quite work out that way
Series Link was designed to act the same as a Season Pass on a TiVo based DVR which only records the episodes from the particular channel. Wishlists for TiVo or Find By for the R15 are for all channels.

Lemme check with a few engineers and get back on this when i get some confirmed info.

Series Link = Season Pass
Find By = Wish List
If I Auto Record a "Find by (Keyword-Family Guy)" rather than "Series Link (Title-Family Guy)" It will record from any channel. unfortunately this means that I would need to expand it to "keep all" instead of just 5 in order to keep 5 from each as well as shows which may have both words “family” & “guy” in the description. Of course this would not work for shows such as friends where the word would show up in hundreds of show descriptions.
I think that I will be able to set up one series link & one Autorecord so and record first run episodes from one channel in one folder and all repeats from all channels in another folder.
Ideally I would like to have a "series link" set up for each so that it would only record shows titled “family guy”, but this works for now.
Note: "Recent Finds" puts all exact title matches in Caps & Lower Case lettering & "keyword" matches in ALL CAPS.
