    I've recently moved from a HDXL to a Roamio Pro.

    On the HDXL I was using KidZone, but that's gone on the Roamios (and I guess the Premieres, too).

    One annoying thing I've been seeing is that if I'm watching a program, and pause it (and leave it paused) and then go away long enough for the parental lockout to kick back in, the pause point is lost -- I end up having to start from the beginning.

    Is there any way to not lose the pause point? If I hit pause, then TiVo to go to the main menu and then walk away will I be able to pick up from where I left off, perhaps?

    If it is a prerecorded program yes it should give you a resume option when you return.

    Why don't you just try that and see if it works?

    The parental controls on the newer boxes are in some ways a step backwards from KidZone.
