Fast Forwarding Bug

Since the latest software update I regularly encounter a problem when fast forwarding a recording.

When in fast forward and then press play, instead of playing, the programme goes into an even faster forward...pause is not responsive (or may actually fast forward faster too, I'm not sure), the only thing I can can do is press stop to exit the programme, and then rewind it a bit to get back to where I want to be, then press play again. Sometimes the problem reocurrs, sometimes not.

This doesn't happen every time, but pretty regularly. Anyone else got the same issue?

I don't think this happened before the latest (Oct & Nov) software updates.

    This sounds similar or the same as the problem in this other topic.

    I've not experienced the problem myself but I almost never use fast forward now that there is a skip function as I mainly just need to skip a few minutes which is much easier that way.

    Ah, yes - cheers. I did search for the problem but the search didn't find it...looks exactly the same issue.

    By the way this is not solved as per the topic menu. The skip is just a workaround so you still need to address this youview

    Hi Paulo, the update in December solved this problem for me...I used to have it all the time, but it hasn't happened since the update....(I have the retail Humax YV box).

    I'm sure you already have, but you may want to go to settings and try to do a manual software update to make sure your software is at the latest version, as I think the BT YV boxes update at a different time from the Humax retail boxes (I'm assuming you got the box through BT)

    Perhaps YV could advise if the BT box is one update behind or something?

    This is not fixed and is driving me crazy. I am using the latest (Jan) software release

    I notice this also can happen when rewinding a current broadcast program (which I guess is also a recording at that point)

    I got this problem very recently and until I saw this thread I thought it might be connected with the March update. I guess not.

    Hi guys - agreed, the problem is back (perhaps it never went away?) and it's driving me crazy again too....I suspect it crept in again in the Feb or March update...

    I've had this problem just a few times but it is very frustrating. Seems to have only happened on 2 hour recordings and longer for me so far.

    I got runaway skipping on the one-hour recording of Thursday's Nashville. Latest software installed, on a retail Humax.

    Yes, the problem came back for me as well whilst FF during 'The Football League Show'. Although, incidentally, not during 'Boss'. The first programme lasting more than 1 hour, the second programme lasting not more than an hour.

    OK, I think we can all agree this bug exists. it happens on every recording I watch, regardless of length.

    It is REALLY annoying

    YV said ages ago that they have identified and fixed the problem, so the question is WHEN are they going to push a fix out. they could have included it in the one they did earlier this month

    Come on YV, this topics is the most commented upon on the forum, please take account of your users feedback and dissatisfaction!

    I find this bug really destroys the playback experience on the commercial channels.
