Description

ps3 showtime is a great application..I have been using it for sometime and it works like charm
I think it would be great to add resuming media playback from where left off especially for long movies (>2hrs)..or better showing a message with two options (start from the beginning or resuming)..

thank you

What do you mean by this?

when you start an video, showtime starts the video from start but asks if you want to continue from the HH:MM:SS a popup in 3 seconds is not answered the popup closes.

settings would be good if given the choice: RESUMING playback: YES / NO / ASK

As I know (correct me if I'm wrong) there's already a setting in Display settings that let's you set if you want a video to resume from last known position or start again, the problem is the layout of that page that avoids the boolean setting of it to be focused (using booleans between strings, sliders or other settings types is bad idea).

Sounds good. Autoclosing popups after a defined timeout is a good idea too

Yes, that's the plan. That's why it's a multi-opt button and no a simple on/off switch.

Yeah, the focus bug is recently introduced and something that's gone bad in the UI navigation code.
Working on fixing that
