Prebuffer Not Honoring Start Position

I am trying to get prebuffer to honor the playstart position. It seems that prebuffer always starts the video from the beginning, despite what the documentation says. Here is the general code I have:

video = showList[showIndex]
'start video 10 minutes in
video.playstart = 600
videoscreen = CreateObject("roVideoScreen")
videoscreen.SetPositionNotificationPeriod(30)
videoscreen.SetContent(video)
'uncomment the next line to ACTUALLY get video to start 10 min in
videoscreen.prebuffer()


Has anyone been able to get this working?

Re: Prebuffer Not Honoring Start Position

Looks like this is a 7.2 bug, a fix has been checked in, so the fix should hopefully show up in a future release.
