lso, I've encountered a problem of REW suddenly not working when viewing long recordings. I recorded the Olympics Opening Ceremony (a long show), and when I watched it the 2nd time, I did a lot of FF and REW to skip to my favorite parts. Well, after doing several of these ff/rew's, the REW just stopped working. If i pushed REW the osd would say "REW 3x" but the playback would not skip backwards; it just kept on playing forwards as if the button was not pushed. If i pressed REW again it would say "REW 5x" but again skipping backwards. If i exit & restart the playback, ff/rew works again (unless I use it "too much").

If I understand correctly after a lot of FF and RW ing the button shows increasing or decreasing the FF/RW speed but the show plays at normal speed. Is this correct? I suspect it has got lost in the seek table. I will also look into the bookmark matter. Perhaps they are not being written properly. But hey this part of the code was written by someone else!!!

n could be input from the command line in the mythroku.roku file.

Rebooted and made some bookmarks.
Now in /home/mythroku I see a .settings file
# ls -la /home/mythroku/
drwxr-xr-x 1 root root 512 Oct 9 23:53 .
drwxr-xr-x 1 root root 512 Oct 4 2005 ..

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 320 Oct 10 00:03 1051_20081009233500.mpg.settings
and the contents of that file is:
# cat /home/mythroku/1051_20081009233500.mpg.settings
#MythRoku File. Do not modify
I think I found (and fixed) my bookmark problem
