DirecTV Plus - R15 Model Performance Issues

This week DirecTv has shipped their new DVR that supposively replaces Tivo.

I am awaiting someone's first review from about the functionality. I have been reviewing the manual and I found some interesting problems that they seem to have in technical issues with the system. I wonder whether people are going to run into the same issues when they receive their new DVR's.

My video and audio are out of sync.
􀀗 Try changing channels.
􀀗 Press LIST, then EXIT.
􀀗 If neither of those work, restart your DIRECTV Plus Receiver. Press MENU, press SELECT on Settings, then SELECT Setup. Select the
Reset item from the left menu and follow the onscreen instructions.

My DIRECTV Plus Receiver is “frozen” on a single frame of a TV picture.
􀀗 If you are on a pay per view channel, watching the free portion of a program, the free portion may be completed. You must buy the
program to continue watching.
􀀗 Your DIRECTV Plus Receiver may be paused. Press the PLAY key.
􀀗 If that doesn’t work, restart your DIRECTV Plus Receiver. Press MENU, press SELECT on Settings, then SELECT Setup. Select the
Reset item from the left menu and follow the onscreen instructions.


When I am watching a recorded program, and the DIRECTV Plus Receiver starts to record another program, my image quality
deteriorates.
􀀗 Press PAUSE, then PLAY.
􀀗 Press EXIT to return to live TV, then press LIST. SELECT the program you were watching from the Playlist and press PLAY. (You may
have to fast forward back to the point where you were.

I got the new DVR 2 weeks ago, and let me tell you,I had nothing but trouble with it. At this point they are sending me a new DVR as it seems that the first one is "faulty".If the new machine acts the same way as the original I will let you know in detail the problems i am facing.
