    I will sometimes watch a baseball game from the recorded shows while it is still recording. I then pause, go out of recorded shows and come back to the game later. Many times it will lose the paused point--there will be no "resume" option. This never happened on my XL4.

    It always happened on my xl4. Really annoying but have learned to live with it by trying to stop around a tick mark to easily return to point left off.

    I should have said that I used the SD menus on the XL4, so maybe it happens on the HD menus only.

    If I start watching a currently recording show from the Live Buffer (i.e. I was watching live TV and tuned to the channel), it doesn't remember where I was if I exit out and go back in.

    If I start watching a currently recording show from the Now Playing menu, it seems to always remember where I was.

    IMO, this is how it should work. It can't remember where you were in the recording because you weren't really watching the recording. You were watching the buffer.

    This hasn't been the case for me. I [almost] never watch from the live buffer, always from My Shows. And I had it happen last night. For me though, it only seems to happen on wishlist recordings. But that's also where I'm most likely to see it. In the case last night, I was watching a hockey game while it was recording. Eventually I reached the point where I was caught up with live so I stopped the recording and watched a 30 minute sitcom. When I went back to the hockey game it started from the beginning.

    I wonder if it's actually the fact that the show is still recording, it's a wishlist or the fact that I caught up with live that's causing the issue.

    I don't have any issues with my place being lost. But I don't pause it first. I will hit the live TV button before going to the My Shows list. I just did this several minutes ago with Continuum which is still recording. When I went to the show list and hit play while on the continuum episode, it started playing in the same spot where I left.

    This happens to me every now and then with non-Wishlist sports recordings. Not saying it can't happen with Wishlists, but I don't record sports with Wishlists. It could happen with non-sports recordings also, but sports is the only thing where I'll start watching, catch up, watch something else from MyShows, go back to sports(still recording). It's completely random and doesn't happen every time.
