Just a few days ago changed over to Virgin from Sky. Happy with most things but struggling to find how you can define where you want to watch on a recording?
On Sky when watching a recording it gave you the option of - start, end or 'viewer defined'. So if I had watched 20mins of a programme and had to pop out, I could come back to watch it another time and pick to view from 20mins. I can't seem to find this on Virgin, have both a TiVo box and V+HD, can you do it on both or either of them? Seems like a basic setting to have.
By default the TiVo will remember the last point you watched to and start the recording playing back from there.
You can't skip to a specific time, but while fast-forwarding at the highest speed, pressing the >| button will skip you to the next white line on the green progress bar, so you can quickly get to a specific point.
This facility is also built into the V+, but you will only see the options if the playback is stopped partway through. If you are at the start of the recording & want to go forward 30 minutes for example, you would need to start playback, stop again (so you go back to the list of recordings) & then re-select again. You will then see the options (Start, End or User defined).
A word of warning. If you are trying to play back a recording that is still in progress, the rewind button & the "user defined" option on this menu may not work, as the box cannot define the end of the recording until it has stopped.
