Not sure if this test is valid, but I used the down arrow to skip 10
minutes at a time until I was at about 40 and 50 minutes. At that point
the pause showed the info bar and the time was right.
I've only used the bookmarks you get when you exit and it asked if you
want to remember the current position and exit or not.
I wanted a CBS show yesterday to test the video quality between v30
Shield and v30 RP3 and I used the exit saving bookmark option a lot
switch between frontends. never had an issue.
Let me know if you can skip to 40 minutes and then reproduce your issue.
I hesitate to watch the whole Good Doctor. Not one of my shows. :-)
