      playback skipping backwards when fast forwarding

      Greetings,

      A rather irritating issue has recently surfaced when watching playback of a recorded program.

      When i press the fast forward button the program skips backward to when the recording was last started.

      For example watching xfactor last week we start to watch the program but fast forward through the first song. This works no problem and we start to watch the next song. However, when we next fast forward, it skips back to the place we last started watching from before it starts fast forwarding... This could be any time, it could be 5 minutes or it could be an hour which is most irritating.

      Any ideas as to the problem, or a solution?

      Cheers
      James

      I have the same issue. Does yours only do it on ITV?

      On an ITV1 programme it looks "jittery" when FF or RW even if only at +2 as if its is dropping frames. If I try rewinding, the box locks up and reboots itself. Push FF and the box jumps back to a point when I last pushed FF. I find that by pushing STOP then PLAY before the forwarding resolves this.

      I have done planner rebuilds but it did nothing. I have recorded programmes on all BBC channels, Sky1, GOLD, Sky Sports, lots on C4 and all record, play and search 100%.

      I would love to know why as mine also has done this for the last couple of months.

      Normally a planner rebuild will cure this, if not you may have to do a full reset which will delete all the recordings on the receiver.

      It may also be worth checking and removing any failed recordings in the planner, I think you press yellow when the planner is on screen.

      In my case, no recordings fail and I can't understand why ITV1 out of all the hundreds of channels is affected. I'm not able to do a full reset for a while so I can't try that but to affect every recording on 1 solitary channel must be a software issue I would imagine.

      This used to do it with Channel 4 and E4 about 2 years back and then just stopped and resolved itself. I would imagine this will to its just when but I didn't keep an eye on the software versions so don't know for certain.

      ITV SD or HD and what region of ITV do you receive?

      I hope I am not usurping the original thread starter but they do seem identical. I receive standard definition signals on Meridian in the South East.

      Re: playback skipping backwards when fast forwarding

      Sorry, I should be clearer. Does the issue affect, only SD, only HD or both. There are something like 16 different ITV regions, so which is affected.

      In your case, is it ITV Meridian HD only?

      I only have SD so I don't know about the HD channels.

      Sorry guys, been off the net for a while. I've just got standard def sky. It has done it again recently but can't remember what channel I was watching. I will try the planner rebuild as suggested. Thanks for your replies.
