It's the R-15. The one that was installed earlier this week is an R-15-100 - manufactured by Thomson.
It's being replaced next week - the menu program is unstable - not just by using the remote but also in trying to navigate menus from the receiver itself.
I've had three Sony receivers in the past, one actually built by LG, and all three were far superior and more solidly built than this piece of tin.
The only thing it has going for it is the DVR. The picture from the receiver and by way of the DVR is very, very soft. Never raised my TV's sharpness control so high.
