At first I thought this new feature was a nice added feature, but using it keeps another very useful feature from working......the "start in one room and finish in another room" feature no longer works if you use the CEC feature. Say you start a live show in one room, pause it to continue in another room,turn off the TV in first room, go to next room to continue the show. Turn on that box and TV. You can't continue where you left off in the first room. Why? Because when you turn off the original TV, you also are turning off the Hopper or Joey that's connected to it. Thus that paused show goes away.....

That is a great feature!! To keep this feature, you must turn off the CEC option on the box you are pausing.

Just wanted to let everyone know...........

I bet they change that pretty quickly or at least modify the functionality due to people complaining about that exact scenario you mentioned.
