2-arrow speed is inaccurate when resuming

On TiVo, watching a recorded show, the 2-arrow speed is very useful for skipping around, but not accurate at resuming where you want it to. It's always seconds behind or ahead of frame visible on screen when you hit Play.

Re: 2-arrow speed is inaccurate when resuming

TiVo patented the functionality - their original customers over a decade ago didn't have the caffeine-high cat-like reflexes we've honed as a result of a generation of using V+HD or Sky's offerings, so if the box is fast-'winding' then when you press Play it will resume playback at the point roughly 1 sec's worth of 'winding' before you pressed the button to allow for less twitchy reflexes.

 

If you wish to resume exactly where you pressed Play, then press Pause first, and it will resume from that point.
