With the new XR15 BlueCurve TV remote there is no ability to play in slow motion.
As someone who watches a lot of sports, this is very disappointing. I frequently used this function before "upgrading" to BlueCurve.
It would be great if this functionality would be available in a future software update. As was indicated in another thread; pressing pause once, then fast forward once, would be a logical key stroke combo for this feature.
I agree, the slow motion feature is a great feature, and I would like it back.
absolutely ridiculous that a newer remote has less features than the old. I am thinking of switching to Telus.
@JJS11 -- switching to Telus
If you do plan to switch, note that Telus, several times, has offered me "buy-out" money, if I were to switch. Since I have Shaw Internet and Shaw TV, the offer was $20/month for each month remaining on my Shaw two-year Value Plan, which matches the "cancellation" fee that Shaw would charge, if I were to prematurely terminate the Shaw contract. So, ask Telus if this "buy-out" offer is still valid.
Of course, as a "new" customer of Telus, you will get promotional pricing, for the first year, and maybe more -- I cannot speak for Telus or Shaw or Rogers.
