PC to Tivo Transfer, Always Restarts Show at Beginning

I am usually very good with a search engine, but have hit a wall trying to investigate my problem.

When it began: with the Spring update (or maybe an interim update that occurred prior to the Summer update, if there was one)
Tivo Model: Tivo Premiere
Symptoms: What used to happen was, when watching a transferred show (using PyTivo), if you stopped watching before the last 5 minutes of the show, when you restart, it picks up where you left off. Now, the reverse happens...if you stop within the first 5 minutes, it picks up where you left off, but, anything more than that restarts the show at the beginning.

Watching something recorded onto the Tivo and played from there without transfer works as it should.

Any thoughts will be must appreciated...

Thank you in advance

Its best to press Pause before you stop watching and it will keep where you stopped even if its at the last minute place. It does not matter if the show was transferred or recorded on the Tivo. It will always ask to delete or keep the recording when you are within the last 5 minutes and not keep its place.

Check that the system clock on the machine running pyTivo is set accurately.
