I got it to do slow motion by using the play button, but didn't spend much time to see if you can do variable slow motion. Will try it again when I get a chance.
Have had my Nextbox 3.0 since Wednesday night. Everything works well, easy to get recordings, works through the Anyplace App now, no complaints so far.
An update on my issue with audio glitches, which I was experiencing on the first day after picking up the box. On day 2, there were none at all, so it had me wondering if a new box actually has to "break in" a bit. I know that sounds unlikely, but everything is fine now. Anyplace TV Home Edition is now working after rebooting the box. I really like the new guides and interfaces for services like TMN On Demand and the Galaxy channels. The box is amazingly fast compared to my old 8300, which took forever to load on demand stuff.
