I keep getting the same complaint about the leg curl, too, that my legs are too close together. I had them literally as far apart as they will go without me falling over, almost to opposite ends of my yoga mat. I'm not sure what the problem is, so if anyone has a solution, please share!
I found I had issues if my clothing was the same color, or if I wore long pants or long sleved shirts. I am a very pale white girl, so if I wear black shorts and a black short sleved shirt, it can usually see everything I am doing. But every time I wear my black yoga pants - long pants - it says my squats & lunges aren't deep enough, or it looses my back leg entirely.

I found the down times in between the exercises during the programs SO irritating in the beginning, until I realized that it is still counting calories during that time - so I either continue the exercise until the next one begins and ignore the rest spot, or I do side punches or forward punches or something - it boosts my calories burned and I no longer get frustrated. (plus it isn't evaluating your "form" during the rest spots, so it doesn't get cranky with you).
Honestly I find it very therapeutic to tell the virtual trainer to "leave me alone," or something slightly more, ah, emphatic, when she's telling me I'm not dong something right. Can't do that with an actual person! :)

I have this problem as well especially with the dodge. I find it really frustrating, I also find the amount of downtime between exercises annoying. I think I need to try more of the the routines and find ones that work well because I think I may not have given the game enough of a chance.

I have found that some of the routines track better than others. No idea why that happens. My way to deal with it has been to find routines that track well and use them. I like the "Perfect Butt and Legs," the "Michelle Bridges: Get Fit," and the add on "Cardio Boxing Platinum: #3." All the cardio boxing ones track pretty well, actually. The worst ones for me tracking-wise are sumo lunges, but I used to have issues with the leg curl and it was all about my arms, not my legs (though it still tells me I really need to bend my knee every time.) It does still count calories even if you aren't doing it "right." so at least that is good!

I'm not sure I've done those moves, but I do have the same problem with the lunge. Because of a problem with my knees, I can't dip as far as my trainer would like and it stops tracking. It is extremely annoying.
