Re: Resume episode no longer works on Acorn TV

Jump to solution

It only happens on Acorn TV.  I have tested it in numerous ways as I used to be an IT tester.  Here is what i have done while using ROKU on my TV:

1.  Hit resume when I first chose the show from the Recently Watched list--starts from the beginning.

2.  Hit resume after choosing the specific episode--starts from the beginning.

3.  Choose the show from any list, then choose the episode--starts from the beginning.

I have chosen NOT to remove Acorn TV and restart ROKU as that does not seem to work for anyone.  From what I have been able to research, there is a middle application between Acorn TV and ROKU, so that is probably where the problem lies.

Resume does work on my computer.  I either resume watching there or make note of the minutes/seconds and fast forward.  However, when I finish watching it on my computer, it does not show as having been finished on my TV. 

FYI--here are other issues I would like to see improved on:  Increased speed options for fast forward; the option to mark an episode as having been watched; the option to remove a show from my recently watched list.

@melee3  "FYI--here are other issues I would like to see improved on: Increased speed options for fast forward"

That is my biggest pet peeve. Seriously, 1 arrow moves 2 seconds ahead/back, 2 arrows move 4 seconds and max 3 arrows moves 6 seconds.

Yes, sometimes even only after stepping away for a few minutes. Very annoying.

Same problem - have reported to Acorn and they have forwarded to their tech dept.

Doesn't seem like there's a quick solution since this has been reported over and over again.

And, extra infuriating that the fast forward isn't fast at all

Yes, the FF is slow/annoying- I've taken to writing down time where I stopped an ep so I can FF*- looking forward to fix!

*start at slow speed & then go to higher or it gets messed up- sigh

@Derf1  On your Roku TV, what is the channel version?

My version is Acorn TV: version 4.9 build 220630.

Same build on Acorn TV.  I've got 4 Roku sticks in use, all different models and none work.  Neighbor has Roku TV and works fine.  Another friend has Firestick and works fine. So does my Acorn App on phone.  I think Roku made a change to player but doesn't want to fix. (or can't)
