Unlike a lot of you, I have not had the lockups/freeze problems I have seen recently posted. One thing I would like to mention though is the remote. I was using the standard remote and the FF, jumpback, etc functioned as bad as many have posted. 2 days ago I got the Harmony/Logitech 676 remote. Programmed it and last night when I got to sit down and use it on my recorded Olympics immediately noticed the response to the remote was right on. I even went to FF4 and the transition to play was not choppy at all. I know on the original, sometimes it would not even stop. The sound sync was much cleaner. So now I'm posing to others and would like to hear if anyone else using a non-standard remote is maybe seeing the same response? Sure would be nice if the "response" problem would be the remote as DTV could replace them easily enough.
