My first R15 (a 300 model) was crap. It had all the usual issues and I had to RBR all the time. My replacement R15 (a 100 model), has been fairly solid. I have had it for about 3 plus months and have not had to RBR yet. I had one major issue with it, when all of my series links (about 7 of them) stopped recording. After deleting and redoing them, it has worked since.wbmccarty said: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?
My initial thought was maybe the 100 models were somehow improved, but others have the 100 model and have the same issues I had with my 300. It appears to be a crapshoot.
The series links for my 300 and 100 model were the same, my hookups were exactly the same, one works and the other didn't, why, I have know idea.
