Ok... everyone.. if you are having LOTS of problems.. to the point where you are going to get a replacement R15..

DO A FULL FORMAT!!

It totally fixed ours... from a dead unit back to a GREAT unit.

Wish I had done it sooner rather than wrestling with it for a full week.. red button resets and forced updates etc... I was too afraid to lose all the programs we had on the hard drive to try a FULL reset.. but it was a losing battle..

Believe me... it fixed it.

I did BOTH full reset uptions to be safe.. the 'down arrow/record button after a red reset'.. followed by the menu/total reset.

Fixed. NO issues now after 24 hours.... ALL recordings successful.

Not sure now what to do with the replacement R15 thats on it's way from D* in the mail.

It doesn't work for everyone. My issues came back within a couple of days. My replacement arrived yesterday. It is a 100 model. So far, no problems. Keeping my fingers crossed.

They're not actually sending replacement units to people who haven't tried a full reset, first, are they? What a waste of money that would be.

When I called, the first thing the CSR wanted to do was a full reset, so it seems at least some of them are asking the customer to do that first.

I told the CSR that I spoke with that I had already done a full reset and my problems did not go away. It was at that point he authorized a replacement.

Mine have been running great for months since doing the format.

Thanks for the info. Maybe it'll fix our called ID problem.

The other question now becomes, what will happen to those who did a full reset when the next software update comes out.
