    Okay, here is an annoying little bug that came with 9.1.

    Start a watching a previously recorded show. Switch to slow motion, let it go for a few seconds, then pause the screen. Now try to step through frame by frame with the FF button - SOMETIMES it just wont work (it gets stuck on the paused frame).

    It does NOT happen EVERY time. Sometimes it advances frame by frame like normal, but sometimes it just gets "stuck" and refuses to advance. I have not tested enough to see if it only happens on HD programs, or any other common condition that causes it, but it didn't take too long to be able to reproduce the issue on both of my S3's that have now received the update.

    Try it out. Test a few different recorded shows, and vary how long you leave it in slow motion before pausing. Odds are, you will be able to reproduce this bug. Actually, I'm not sure now, but I think I also did it with a live show.

    While waiting for the issue to get fixed, you can "unstick" it by backing up several frames, probably beyond the point where you paused, and then going frame-forward again.

    I don't need to use slow motion to get this issue, just pause.

    Yep, I get the same thing. I noticed it while trying to check a "play under review" in a football game, several times. As noted by others, it does become unstuck by going back a few frames, then forward.

    I have the same problem with 9.1: press slow motion; then pause; now try viewing frame by frame with FF -- it just sits there.

    Doesn't anyone test this stuff?

    Or press slo mo again to release it. But, yes, it is reproducible.
