    Is there anyway to restart a program from the beginning that I have partially watched on the series 2, DT unit without "rewinding" to the beginning?

    Resume playback, engage rewind ("first gear" is sufficient), and hit skip-to-tick repeatedly and it will jump backwards in 15-minute increments until it hits the beginning. This process only takes 3-4 seconds, tops.

    You don't even need to start rewinding. Just hit skip-to-tick (the ->| button) until you get to the end. Press it once more and it will wrap around to the beginning.

    You do if you have skip-to-tick reprogrammed as the 30-second skip, as I do. When moving in any speed of fast forward or rewind, the button reverts to its normal stt action in the direction currently engaged. From there, either stt to the end and rollover, or stt backward as desired. Whichever is closest, I suppose.

    If you're kept the default function for that button, you should just be able to hit it once (during regular playback) to get to the end of the program. Then, hit it once more to go to the beginning.
