July 2nd update and fast-forward

Wed Jul 02, 2014 1:47 pm

My Streaming Stick firmware was auto-updated this morning (around 8:30). Since then the fast-forward when using Amazon Instant Video is virtually useless. Prior to the update there would be an image (frame) for each stop. Now it's just blank--no way to tell where you are in the video (credits etc).

Is this a Roku problem or an Amazon problem? The function needs to have the images restored in order to be useful.

The images are back. So, someone somewhere changed something. :D

Some programs won't have images. I notice often that some episodes in a series, for example won't have the images for one episode, but the next one does. Must be just one of those things.

That may sometimes be the case, but not in this instance. All episodes of the show watched prior to the update had images. After the update, none of the next few episodes had images. Now, all episodes--including those that had no images yesterday--have images (again). No, something happened which restored the images after they went missing. It could have just been a glitch with the Amazon servers, or it could have been related to the update; but I'm not too concerned about it either way at this point. Things are as they should be--all is well (for the moment).

If you run into something like this again, please remember to post the specific titles/episodes this happens in.
