I have set several Series Links on my R15 and everytime I select FIRST RUN, and everytime it records every episode - even ones with REPEAT very clear in the description. I check the prioritizer and it says "all episodes will be recorded" but back in the Series Link set up it clearly shows record: first run.

What the hell? This sure ain't a TIVO!

Anybody had this issue? Gotten it fixed? Thrown their R15 through the window of a DirecTV building?

Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the club. You should see all the Stargate, Simpsons and Cops episodes I've had to delete that the R15 recorded.

According to Earl at DBSTalk, D* FINALLY found the problem in the software and they're working on a fix for it. But then again I also heard in December 2005 that a software fix would be coming in January for it. Only time will tell.
 
The R15 is hit or miss...
Some shows work perfectly with regards to the First Run/Repeat.

The logic that is in the HR20 (which so far in about 4 weeks, I have only had 1 repeat record), is a LOT better...

And that logic is supposed to be making it's way to the R15.
