The first poll was obviously flawed due to not having a selection for "Once in a blue moon". I hope this new poll fixes that. Sorry for the inconvienience!

I thought this would be fun for everyone. I was curious what the stability if the HR20 base is. Obviously the less frequent the RBR's the more stable everything is.

So lets see what happens

Thanks! And thanks to Earl for closing the flawed poll. The more I thought about it and the more comments that were posted, it was obvious that old poll was flawed.

And for the record, my vote for several times a week is what was happening every time I would get the verticle aspect ratio abnormality.

Since 12a nada. But I do not trust it :nono:

I voted once in a blue moon. I honestly don't remember the last time I RBR for anything other than the CEs.

Since November's install, I would say twice a month, so I still can't vote.

Now does "pull out the power cord" count in this poll? To explain, Until I joined this site I did not know there was a red button. Much to the amusement of the cruel senior site members.

I choose once in a blue moon. I've had to RBR because of a lockup 3 times total since September and only once in the past couple months and that time was under a CE.

Oh I think if you really wanted to, you could pick something.
