I just got my Explorer 8000 yesterday (charter, MA) and I noticed something irritating. If I schedule a recording (say, Friends at 8:00), get home a short time later (say 8:15), and then go to the list of recordings and choose Friends it starts playing the recording at the live time (as opposed to the beginning of the show... the part I've missed, but has already been recorded).
This seems pretty stupid... if I wanted to watch it at the live time, I'd just tune in to that channel ;) So what I'm looking for (and haven't been able to find yet) is either:
1) A way to change the default viewing starting position of recordings in progress (from "live" to "beginning"), or
2) A way to jump to the beginning of a recording without having to rewind (which both shows me parts of what I've missed as well as consumes a bit of time... even at 32x rewind it takes about 30 seconds to rewind 15 minutes of recording. Gets really brutal for a movie halfway through it's recording).
Any hints? I've only had the box for a day, so admittedly I can be missing something obvious. This seems so obviously stupid that there MUST be a way around it I'm missing.
