"Error-Bug "City" A Piece of Crap"0.5 starson by carrera329
Pros: NEGATED, bookmarks good idea if worked more than half the time
Cons: Does Not Record ALL Programs that are Scheduled
Summary: Hum, where do I benign I've had the distinct pleasure of dealing with the R15-100 Hour after first dealing with its predecessor R15-80 Hour. I received the R15-100 after I finally got DIRECTV to agree that my assessment of the receiver was correct “Defective.” Stooped recording certain programs set to record “Season-Pass” an example would be a news program that comes on Monday thru Friday. This receiver Freezes at times where you have to reset it or unplug the receiver, half the time you try to set a bookmark for a show you are watching the receiver won’t allow you too!! At times the receiver R15-100 will for no reason reset itself as your right in the middle of watching a program.
The manual for the R15-100 was made for the person who can’t Walk and Talk on the cell phone at the same time if you know what I mean. So you have to figure out most of the “advance features” for your self.
This is the worst designed Remote control UI (user interface) I have ever come across. The remote sur cumbersome, to bulky the key cowardly placed.
I have to down grade DIRECTV form 5 Star service to 2.5 stars’s as I’ve was told on two separate occasions the receiver would download and upgrade the firmware with the must up-to-date Patch to fix any other errors/bugs, this has not happened as my receiver is still working off the original 0x1022 version, nor does DIRECTV offer a update you can download to a USB Flash Drive with auto install program attached.
