I've never kept track of how well the Motorola DVRs remember where you left off. I suspect, like many things in the Motorola DVRs, this information is kept in memory, for as long as there is memory enough to store it. The Motorola DVRs generally have insufficient memory capacity for what they're being asked to do these days (which is why, perhaps, Motorola is designing a new series of DVRs, the DCX- series). So many memory-dependent features are adversely affected. Other things you may notice is that the program guide data seems to have a lot of "To Be Announced" programs for dates more than a week in the future. It's caused by the same thing.
