Noticed someething interesting - one of the movies I recorded with the DVR will playback in a loop. What I mean is, when the recording [it's a movie BTW] reaches the end of the recording, it automatically restarts and plays again.
Of the dozen or so recordings [movies, sports, etc] only this one recording does this. I actually like it, I'm just curious to know why only this one and/or can I tell other recordings to do this too?
Would love to have the option to queue up several movies at once to play one after the other without intervention. Basically a recording 'playlist' feature - can this be done?

I have several movies that when they finish I've hit "OK" to restart but only this one movie will restart without touching the remote. As you suggest, perhaps it's a bug or a corrupted file. What's interesting and I have not tried is to see if this same thing happens on a different reciever within the house with this same movie.
What would be nice is to get a list of all the 'backdoor' or hidden commands associated with the system! You know the devs have some built in.
I had a discussion with another subscriber, last month, about how the DVR handles itself at the end of a program. Long story short, it has no rhyme or reason. One time (after a six minute delay), it started replaying the recording from the start, one time it brought up a menu and another time it brought up a screensaver. The latter, if you pressed a key, the recording was paused at the beginning.
I think that it depends if you have previously watched the recording and what box it is on (DVR or non-DVR box).l
