This is what I think is going on. You probably have your settings for start recording early and end late. When you start watching you are watching the ABC feed. A minute or so into the recording the simsub starts. You cannot skip ahead past the simsub insertion point. I find that even if I FF the fast forward stops at the point the simsub starts. It has been like this for a while. I do find that you can skip ahead in the body of the program however.
I have noticed a couple instances where City is the simsub that screen will go black momentarily like the simsub has been interrupted. It has done this with DWTS of late. In fact it hiccuped a couple times, the info bar would appear but after a couple hiccups the progress bar seemed to stop advancing like it was a broken recording. Other then the brief hiccups the program played to the end. Perhaps there is something in the City feed that is causing this as I have not seen it on any other channel yet, but the fall season is just getting underway. You may be better off recording the City feed so that you don't experience any simsub headaches.
