vip2250, how to change rewind cuing after fast forward

Using either the 6 year old DVR (I think it was a vip1225) or the satellite vip1200, I could fast forward then press play and it would rewind enough to cue up to a reasonable spot.  Now using the vip2250, it doesn't rewind at all with FF+play, and starts too far forward from where I pressed play (and therefore I have to manually rewind a bunch to cue it correctly).  The vip1200 still functions as before and auto-rewinds to a good spot after FF+play.  How can I set the vip2250 to auto-rewind after FF, like the vip1225 used to?

By pressing the FF+FF will do what you are asking.

But I'm not sure as I have Cisco boxes and that what works for me.

bobsmith488 - No, you can't set anything to change it. I felt that the jump back on the 1225 was excessive when using really fast FF. The only thing I noticed about the 2250 is that it seems softer or "lazier" than the 1225. Like the 1225 is a small zippy car & the 2250 is a big luxo-cruiser.

Instead of stopping the FF with the play button try the drop back or even the fast reverse.

I see it occuring the exact same way on my old 1216 and the newer 2250, can use the exact timing cues and jumps back to the beginning of the segment for me.

 

On 1FF/play, mine jumps back 2-3 seconds, just like the 1216 did.  Try it while the pitcher is just throwing his pitch, it'll jump back to the windup.

 

It's that the 2500 is much better at catching/using all the codes you send from the remote, but still does not like two of the same digit quickly. Smiley Wink

Well, they seem to have changed/updated it, because now it is working like the vip1225 did.  Perhaps I've received an update, since I was basically running a new DVR out of the box.  It didn't dawn on me to check the software versions before, but currently I have:

 

TV2 client version 2.2.28163.20 (RELEASE)
OS/Version: WinCE/5.0.1400
UI: 5.5.5-nt

Well, actually, it's not working very well.  It seems inconsistent, when compared to the previous DVR, and the satellite STBs, which is worse in a lot of ways.  I don't understand how they can screw this up so badly.  My fix was to stick the DVR in a corner, and replace it with a vip1225.

Meaning you put a 1200, not a 1225, a DVR: can only have 1 DVR in the system. 

 

I'm still geting the response times on my 2250 as I posted above. Smiley Wink

They changed something!  But I'm not seeing what the OP is seeing.  MY issue is with Rewind.  Pressing RW and then play when you see where you want to play, it is actually fast forwarding about 10 seconds.  It should never do that!

 

I hacve noticed inconsistency with FF, if you have only FF for a few seconds.  Pressing Play in that caes, the unit will not roll back the 7 seconds.
