why does tivo not rewind a few seconds after fast forward

Up until a couple of weeks ago, if you fast forward a recording on 2x or 3x speed and then press play, the recording would automatically roll back a few seconds. This is a big help when you want to skip past something. But now it has stopped the automatic roll back. Is this a software upgrade and is there a way to get back to the way it was until recently?

Re: why does tivo not rewind a few seconds after fast forward

Hi. I have had the same problem which I have reported to VM.
I also found that if you pause a program and then use the double arrow to go back, the program actually goes forward by one frame each time you press the button for maybe up to four times then skips back a couple of seconds.
The other thing I noticed is that when you go fast forward X3 the function goes slow forward then picks up into X3.
The guy on the end of the phone could only replicate the issue of the frames going forward instead of going backwards.
He thinks this happened in the latest software upgrade. He has asked another expert to look at this but this will not be until next week (1st week in Oct)
Personally I don't hold out much hope for this being resolved soon and reading between the lines I thing the functionality of the fast forward stopping and then automatically going back a few seconds will disappear... A shame as that is one of the things I really like about the TIVO box...
Maybe if enough people complain then they will do something...
Let me know your thoughts.
Cheers
Buzz

Re: why does tivo not rewind a few seconds after fast forward

You can see others have this issue and it seems the suggested solution is to reset the whole box.

Not a suitable fix I would say but they don't seem to have any other ideas.
Also it's clear an update has caused this with it having as many people report it on here happening all around the same time.

Re: why does tivo not rewind a few seconds after fast forward

Nobody has mentioned hardware/software version.

I have :
Platform 8620
HW version 8.1
SW version 20.4.3.1.RC4

My fast forward still stops several frames back from the visual cue.

Re: why does tivo not rewind a few seconds after fast forward

I never use the FF feature so can't say if it's changed on my TiVo. I do use the skip forward button, and that has changed. It used to show 4 different frames before continuing but now only shows the first frame before continuing.

There has been no change or fault for myself following the update.
