Tivo playback of Sky Movies on demand a bit pants?

Whenever I play a movie from Tivo: On Demand->Sky Movies, if I pause it, it bails after 10 minutes. When I hit play again, it starts from the beginning! I can't find an option to jump in a certain number of minutes.

So, please somebody tell me how I:

1. Stop the Tivo quitting after 10 minutes pause, or at least increase it.

2. Set some option so the Tivo remembers to play from where it left off.

3. Set a time in the Movie/show from which to start playback.

I wonder if I have a faulty unit since it takes ~3 seconds for the Tivo to pause playback after I've hit pause on the remote, whereas the Sky platform paused immediately? Is this normal for Tivo?

If there are any other tips for exSky users, please share.

I'm afraid for on d mans here 10 mins is the maxim pause. 

If you do get kicked out and go back to the play screen it should say 'resume playing' which should start at the place you left off  although I'm guessing a bit as I've not got sky movies 

If you're TiVo is slow rebooting it can sometimes help but I think you'll find it's slower than the sky platform

In terms of the 3 seconds delay to pause the film it is because you are streaming unlike with Sky where you would download the film to your box so it was immediate actions.
So that is normal and doesn't happen just with Sky movies but other streaming such as ITV, CH4 etc.

Just as a matter of interest do you have HD?
Noticed how few films are in HD compared to SD?
