Does On-Demand "resume play" never work?

I've noticed this several times now. If I stop watching something in "On Demand", either intentionally or because I left it "paused" for too long, the resume-play option never quite works. I can choose to resume play from the On Demand menu, but it always always always starts again from the beginning rather than where I left off: I have to fast-forward (and not particular fast at that) to where I left off.

Typically, I'll be watching something on HBO or Showtime.

This has been going on for a few months now. It used to work fine. No equipment changes at this end.

ANyone else have this problem?

Used to work. Never works for months. We thought it was our DVR's fault. Learned here it is general fault.

Yes and it is quite ridiculous if you try to resume play when watching an on demand program where you CANT FAST FORWARD.

It works on some channels and it works better if you take certain actions such as hitting stop first.

But yes it doesn't always work.
