To be honest it didn't occur to me that the "watch from the beginning" was an internet connection feature. If I disconnect the box I would also disconnect the 22 and apparently wouldn't have the feature available on either. Recording the episode would not then recreate the issue. If the two issues are related then what may be happening with the F/X and other networks is that for some reason the genies are being triggered to begin recording early thus cutting off early. And of course the broadcasters aren't helping with all this scheduling of 1,2,3 or 5 minutes longer than an hour broadcast. But for some reason my non genies don't get flummoxed by this while both my genies always do. When I had my 34 at that time I had an HR 21. The early cut off only happened on the 34. I don't know if that "watch from the beginning" feature was enabled back then. Both machines were subsequently replaced with the 44 and 22 respectively and the issues continued in an identical manner along with the addition of watch from the beginning. I no longer bother with that feature because I got burned so many times when I had gotten into a movie or other program and really wanted to see the end of it. If it cut off part of the beginning I wouldn't be so annoyed but cutting off the end of something I'm really into - *##**#*##!!
