    Is anyone else having this problem? I'm using an Apple TV (2nd generation), and for the past week or so, I cannot fast forward or rewind when watching HBO Go. It just sits there as if I paused it. I've reset it and that will often fix it for one or two uses, but then it's back to being unable to go forwards and backwards.

    Long time, first time - same here! This discussion on Apple's forums suggests that chapter skipping (press down on the remote, then skip to the chapter you'd like to view) may still work. It worked for me, but I'd still like to understand how to get FF and RW working again.

    Yep, I saw that. While I got chapter skip to work, it's very annoying to not be able to shuffle around just a few seconds in case you missed something said during the movie/show. I saw a lot of other threads as well, but nobody seems to have a solution yet.

    REW/FFW capability came back ONCE on its own. This was after a network interruption. I was able to rewind once, but then when I tried a few minutes later just to test, it just froze the screen again.

    I just tested HBO GO on mine and FF and REW are working fine. I have an ATV2. I have Comcast in case that matters.

    Thanks -- I think I will try to do a restore this weekend to see if that helps.
