Virtual Rain XH9 Remote Controller is Buggy

Anyone know of a list that divulges the quirks and work arounds for this controller? Virtual Rain's website is of no use.

My controller the XH9 Remote is new and the manual is sparsely written and incorrect in some places.

1. Setting and transmitting the programs is tricky. It takes lots of learning by trial and error.
2. A start time of 12:15 PM does not water in the afternoon, it waters in the moonlight even though the date and time are correct. The first start time on the same program "C" at 9:00 pm starts in the correct part of the day. It is only the 12:15 afternoon setting that runs at midnight.
3. There isn't any way to run a particular program such as A, B or C manually. It requires the complete entry of a "one time only" manual program that disappears after it is run.

4. The remote feature is handy, but correct internal programming would be more useful!
