On Demand issues?

Is anyone else having on demand issues? I often have to start things three times before they actually start. PVR has also been acting wonky lately with the same issue, sometimes it just doesn't feel like playing something. Once it starts it works fine, though.

I've not used the on demand much as of late so not sure of any issues there, I have seen issues with my recordings in that sometimes when using FF the playback stops and it gives me the option to restart the show, this usually happens towards the middle to end of the show and it does not happen all of the time. I have not seen any issues with recordings not starting though. I did have issues where the recording would not start on my old PVR ( silver boxes) but I had that replaced with the newer black boxes. I do not have any 4K STBs

I actually experienced a bunch of issues last night with PVR/pause live TV. We paused live TV, seemed fine, but when resuming, it tried to use the restart feature instead, which blocked us from skipping ads, so we decided to try and play the PVR recording that was in progress, that wouldn't start either, just a blank screen. The plan is to reboot the PVR at some point, when no other recordings are going on.

We also had an issue where recordings that worked fine last season, are all messed up this season. Blank titles locally, and odd issues with remote playback via the app, such as no audio on mobile, but local playback is fine.

That blank screen issue when starting a recording is one of the issues I'm having. So, at least it's not just me.

It's amazing how fast things have turned around, with Rogers suddenly having the better TV service in NB, it seems.
