I haven't had a chance to go back and see if this is in the manual or not (I suspect not), but I noticed that on the E80 remote, the Left/Right buttons in the 4-way cluster also control single-frame stepping. These are a lot easier to find by touch, and use for setting edit points.

I don't know if this is common to the entire line, but if so it would make things easier on the HS2 (and T3040), which dropped the single-frame stepping buttons completely off the remote, in favor of the HDD/DVD selectors, IIRC.

Hey for those who have an E20 remote, do the frame stepping buttons on this remote do the same thing on the E80?

Yes it's in the manual, I do read it! Why do they create such a great machine and only give the buyer such sporadic info in the manual?

Because the people writing the manuals aren't that technically literate, and don't know everything about the unit that the engineers and designers do.

Plus, they must have some page # constraints, otherwise they wouldn't bury some vital information only in condensed charts at the end, without bothering to explain it in any detail in the manual proper.
