Sadly, it wasn't fixed. Or put the way 1.8 was. They know about it. Hoping in the next rev.

I received the update yesterday in VHO 5 and while watching a recording on a remote STB, the timeline stopped while I was watching. I started watching the show 40 minutes into it, and the time stopped when I got to that point. I thought this was going to be fixed. Anyways, nice posting on the fixes and enhancements. I think the software team did a great job.
