    I've noticed that when I try to rewind videos, the  TV becomes kinda sluggish. Anyone else have this problem?

    Yes I do too. I'm hoping this might be something they address in the update.

    Are you streaming or syncing?

    Holding down the left arrow, or clicking it?

    At first I thought it was cuz of streaming, so I loaded up a few videos on the  TV and tried again. I have chapter markers in my videos so I'm pretty sure I'm clicking and holding as just clicking changes chapters. If I fast-forward (hold down the button), it acts fine. However if I try to rewind doing the same, it hiccups a bit and takes a while to react.

    I've also noticed if I try to advance more than a few chapters at a time, it also takes a little bit of time to start playing again, so it must be some performance issue as the device is trying to load the video information.

    Maybe it caches the video a bit but only in the forward direction?
