Hoping somebody can help with this (I'm not optimistic), as I can’t find this fault anywhere in the forum.
My TRF-2100 worked as expected for several years until recently, when problems started - namely extremely slow response to RCU commands. LED on front of unit flashes to show commands have been received, but most selections ether happen extremely slowly or perhaps do not happen (not sure, but can’t watch for 20 mins to find out). For example, TV Service delete takes 5+ minutes and service change similar or worse.
If I remove and replace power source to the machine it initially starts OK, but shortly reverts to the slow response, (although I think they may eventually succeed).
To try to solve this fault, I formatted the HDD, and then updated firmware. System Status has always shown latest firmware version, but I did it anyway. Both were successful, and before a service scan RCU commands work OK within the Settings App. As soon as I do a service scan and operate the RCU, the same problem recurs. Can it be a defective tuner?
Another thing that may be pertinent is that the machine always does the file check at boot (always showing successful).
This is the System Status result (although I suspect it is of little use):
System ID: 35501
Loader Version: 1.02
Device Version: 1.0.0
App Version: TF-NFTP 1.10.00

Look forward to any expert thoughts on this.
