I haven't been around this forum for a while but for some reason I decided to stop in tonight. It seems like just over a year now since I first searched Google for R-15 reviews and found Earls daily chronicling of the unreleased R15. I had UltimateTv for years and they were just starting to break down too much. I read Earl's reviews everyday and decided to be one of the first to order 2 brand new R15's when they were only available through the internet. They came in the mail and I disconnected my UTV. I plugged in the shiny new, sleek R15's with the fancy blue lights in the front. Transferred my list of favorite shows over to record. The only thing was that the R15 didn't seem to record all of my shows. It would just decide not to record them for whatever reason. I would get home excited about catching Survivor and it wouldn't be there. There were other problems too but I really can't seem to remember them right now. The main thing was that it just didn't record the shows I told it too. I came on the T*vo community website and whined. It seemed like lots of other people did the same thing. A few people didn't seem to have the problems and several more seemed to hold out hope that DTV was going to put out the update that would cure all the problems. I really couldn't take it. It pissed me off to no end when I came home to find my shows not recorded. So after I complained far too much I sent them back for 2 R10's. I really thought that Earl was crazy for his eternal optimism. After looking at this message board tonight I feel like I probably did the right thing. So if you have read this far you are probably wondering what the point is to my post? Am I here to start complaining again? Nope, I got my solution and I am happy. I really just want to know, has Directv fixed the R15 yet?
