Not sure if it is just me or not but is anyone else noticing less and less duplicate recordings recently ? When I first got the R-15 I had to manually delete shows everyday and lately there have been none. I also have not had a lockup in about a week now and used to get them all the time. I even went into the to do list and history today and it almost always used to lockup when I did before and today was fine.

Maybe the guide data is being fixed or changed or something ?

Anyone else ?

I have noticed improvements as well that I suspect are guide data related since there hasn't been an update.....

Most noticeably, I have only been geetting the 10:PM Daily Show ( I have it set to first run). I used to get all four each day!!!

What does :D mean? I haven't noticed any real differenct, but for the record, for all the aggravation this thing has caused me, it has NEVER locked up on me.

DS is well know for playing with their guide data. Everything works fine for a few weeks and then new shows start showing up with the description (1999 - a Humorus Slant on ....) and you end up switching back to First Runs & Repeats in order to get the first runs. It's particularly bad when Jon gets back from one of his week or two vacations.

Another good morning. Woke up checked my R-15 and for over a week now no duplicate recordings. I do have 49 SL's so I would think I should have some if things were not getting better.
