Refresh my recollection, please

Now that my latest replacement R15 unit (I had several others last spring) is due in 4-5 days, I'm curious what to expect. Even after the most reset-iest reset possible, my unit continued to have reliability problems (multiple lock ups per day, black-screen recordings, partial recordings, etc.)

Has anyone gone through several R15 units, kept their SLs under 10, done weekly prophylactic RBRs, and minimized use of risky functions (search, auto-record, etc.) only to continue to have basic reliability problems? Can I anticipate the prospect of being the first? Or, will I have company even in the worst case that the replacement is as bad or worse than the original?

Cheers,

As this is a replacement unit. Make sure it's virgin. Do a DA/REC, do a reset everything, to a guided setup and redownload the software. Make sure you start from scratch as it doesn't seem DTV does this for all units.
