That does not make me happy. How bad is the R15? I heard some complaints about the early R15s.

Thanks for the quick reply SMS.
Check the Directv forums at www.dbstalk.com for a lot more discussion on the R15.

There is good and bad to be said, but I have two R15's and one R10, and for the most part I prefer the R15. Others feel differently.

If you plan/need to network your dvr with other TiVo units, neither the R10 nor R15 are able to do that. There is an R10 hack that requires replacing IC's to enable networking. There is no modification for the R15.

Thanks Carl. I found the dbstalk forum a little while ago and am doing some reading over there.

I have a DishNetwork DVR now and it's ok, but not a TiVo. I guess it's all in what you get used to using.

*nods* Quoted For Truth.

Actually, the R15 compares Very favorably with the Dish 522.
I prefer the D* box. It definitely needs some work, though.
Could've been a lot worse.

Regardless of what they send you (unless it's a Series 2), grab a Series 2 off eBay, regardless of whether it has a hard disk or not. You could use something such as InstantCake + PTVNet and the hard disk from your 522 to network your TiVo and do cool things....

Once you TiVo you will never go back. I second the buy a series 2 recommendation. (Philips 704 or 708 nod nod wink wink). Search for info on the new series of card problems
