    I have 2 R15's and both rec'd F1 update. When fast forwarding, then hitting play, it keeps on going. It happens on both boxes. Also, live TV wont pause half the time on one of the boxes.

    Have you tried rebooting the box since you got the update? In the past a post upgrade reboot has done woders.

    Which program/channels where you watching?


    I also edited the title so it is a little more descriptive of what your post includes.

    Earl, I didnt notice it happening to any one channel or program. it seems random. I just went in to ask my wife and she said watch this, and hit FF then Play and she'd have to hit Play 2 or 3 times before it would stop and play. It runs 2 to 3 minutes past the point when hitting play. We tried it on a couple other shows she has recorded and it was the same thing. Another thing we just noticed is the progress bar not always being orange on a recorded program. Sometimes it's green.

    Ok, Checked both boxes and I dont notice much improvement when hitting the Jump back button from FF. My wife says she thinks it improves it slightly.

    Is this during "live" TV or recorded programs or both? does it matter if it's a program recorded before the update?

    Larry.... Are you using the stock Remotes, or something else?
    Is the blue light flashing when you hit play.

    (I am just trying to think of other reasons that the Play button is not working to stop playback)
