    I haven't had trouble with SLIP but it is a constant problem with the 'auto-correct' (since MRV was in Beta) using FF 3x. The further you FF the bigger the auto-correct.

    I just can't seem to get used to SLIP and have been using FFx3 to skip through commercials etc...

    Personally, I would prefer to see a 2 TB drive rather than wireless capabilities.

    Congrats.... I got one 3 months ago and had numerous issues. Referred my bro who had the same issues also... The tech warned me of issues too, yet i ignored. Anyways, it all seems good now since last update, but for me when it comes to DTV i wont get any new tech out of the gate until it shows some serious forward momentum, not just a weak step forward and to the side...and time for them to fix the bugs every unit I have ever owned had.

    Not quite sure what you mean, but I've got nine 24s on my MRV and don't see any problems with any of them. Perhaps you could clarify?

    Never have that problem using the Skip option. If I FF, I usually see a 90 second auto-correct, which is way too long. Easier to Skip, in most instances.

    I hardly ever use FF because I just Love the 30 Second Skip Button. :)

    I think that's the same speed as the 30 Second Skip. The Skip is just easier because it never auto-corrects.

    I really thought the Skip would be used more than the FF option.

    I only use slip on sporting events (between pitches/plays). For commercials, it's always ffX3

    There's a FF button?? :D

    I only use Skip, both forward and backward.

    I use FF to blow thru half-time during football games. As soon as I see the team on the field, I hit Play and watch in amazement as it goes way back and I have to hit the Skip button 3 or 4 times. They really ought to correct the auto-correct.

    I don't know why yours does that Rich. Auto-correct typically backs up about 15 seconds on FFX3. If yours is backing up 1.5 - 2 minutes, there's something wrong.

    I've tried using slip, but just don't like it. Regardless of how many times I push it, I either end up watching 15 - 20 seconds of a commercial or I miss 15 - 20 seconds of the program and then have to rewind.

    With FFX3, I see zero commercial (unless I choose to) and don't miss any of the program. I get it to stop exactly where I want it to (with the exception of the HR34 which is a bit different).

    All FFx3 here, and use Skip to skip to tick marks for super fast or to skip to the end of a recording for deletion. The family has the FFx3 timing down fairly well to stop just enough into the recording after a commercial. If timing off, then one back skip usually solves it.

    I always use 30skip which I really miss when using a Samsung RVU client since that remote doesn't have the skip buttons on it. Thinking of just keeping a C31 on that set just because of that.

    Not sure why I like FF but it sounds like you do have the same problem as I do if it auto-corrects 90 seconds! It's only a problem over MRV. There is auto-correct on local recordings but I have those down do I can hit play and it corrects to the right place...

    Over MRV the auto-correct gets longer and longer and then you back up and it auto-corrects again - real pain in the backside!

    Do you use it over MRV? Like you say it works correctly - but only when I'm watching something recorded on the DVR I'm sitting at. As so as I use on a recording from a different DVR then I'm in Rich's boat - autocorrect is out-of-control!

    I'm just hoping that this is fixed with the HR34/44 and works with the C31 clients.
