Perhaps they've corrected their matching problem. We weren't seeing a 2C1R who shares lots of DNA including two segments over 50cM. He's the closest match now.

MyHeritage also has a chromosome browser now, but it appears to only be one-to-one.

My Heritage chromosome browser RSID

Yes my matches increased 10fold as well. A few of my matches came back as not related but the overall increase in matches make up for it.

I have a question about the chromosome browser results. There is an option to download the results and next to the Start and End location columns are two columns that are Start RSID and End RSID. What is RSID?

RSID stands for Reference SNP ID. Each SNP tested is listed as a RS number.

ie
Code:
 
RSID	  CHROMOSOME	POSITION	RESULT
rs3094315	1	  742429	  AA
Each RSID correlates with a position
