    Sorry if this has been asked, but I could not find through searches. I've noticed that when I go to playback items from an EHD connected either to my 622 or 722, instead of starting from where I stopped the show, it either starts from the beginning or from the previous stopping point. Kind of annoying when your half way or more through a show, stop it and them come back later to restart and it starts from the very beginning.

    I'm kinda confused by your statement. You said it will start from a "previous stopping point" or the beginning; isn't that what you want?

    On my 622 or 722, if I'm watching a show off EHD, and stop anywhere in the middle to watch something else, when I come back and view the show again I get the option to "resume" or "start over" from beginning.

    If I choose resume it begins where I had previously stopped viewing. Isn't this what you want? Works the same way as the internal drive.

    Could he mean this: Let's say I want to watch a show that I saved to my EHD a few months back. That show will be at the bottom of the directory (everything on EHD listed by date of storage). When I get done watching that show, I hit stop. Now, I'm back at the start of the directory and I have to scroll all the way down and find the show if I want to delete it or restart it.

    Sorry ZBoomer, let me elaborate. Let's say I play a movie for my kids and they watch 15 minutes of it and we stop the movie. The next night, I choose Resume and we watch another half hour and stop again, without finishing the movie. Sometimes, on the third night, when I choose Resume again, it will start back at the 15 minute mark and not where we left off the night before at the 45 minute mark. And on other occasions, it will just start over from the beginning even though I chose Resume. I know it sounds weird, but it happens and not on every recording. Its annoying since there is no easy way to take large leaps forward in a recording, especially when the kids want to start from where they left off.

    You indicate that this happens on your 622 and your 722. I had the same problem when I had a 622 and one of the software updates trashed my, and others, EHD. Once I upgraded, because they would never fix the problem with the 622's, I haven't had any issues with any of my external drives. Is this happening on your 722 as well? I suppose the 622 could be writing some sort of tag on the file that lets the receiver know where it left off. I wonder if you were to play a recording for 15 minutes then stop; then 30 minutes and stop on your 722, if it would work.

    Ok I get it; you get the resume feature, but it's buggy and doesn't always work. Interesting, I've never noticed that, but I don't think I've payed attention close enough. Maybe I will next time!

    Oh, and E91, I know what you're talking about as well, and that is terribly annoying. I have like 400 programs on one EHD, and it's brutal to scroll to the bottom to watch something, man. We need folders on EHD BADLY.
