    Not much. The R10 is essentially unhackable without replacing an internal IC. You can upgrade the hard drive and enable Tivo commands for 30-sec skip and sorting the "Now Playing" list, but that's about it.

    Sounds like a good usage for a "R15", but the "R10" with a little surgery is far more capable than the new "R15", and you can blame the need for the surgery on DirecTV.

    At this point the "R15" cannot even be modified by surgery or expanded for more recording capacity, NOW THAT IS TOTALLY USELESS, "One Step Forward and Three Steps Backwards".

    same as any other tivo
    select play select 30 select while watching something in your now play list turns on 30 sec skip
    sort playlist? hit enter while looking at it and turn groups on/off sort alphabetically and what not.

    Not really. The new PROM security is a side effect of thr R10 being an S2.5, not it a being DirecTV model, unless you are saying DirecTV insisted of PROM security, which TiVo developed and also included on their Standalone 2.5 models also.

    The R15 won't even take a bigger hard drive? Ok, now I'm SURE I don't want one!

    Well, nobody's figured out how to do it yet.
