I have something similar using 1.7.12 and ATSC, was working under 1.6.0
fine...

I can fastwind and rewind, even go from fastwind to rewind, but if I
play at the end of the fastwind then the picture remains paused.  I can
go from the pause to rewind or fastwind, but not play.  I have to exit
the recording, and then go back in, when VDR will start from where it
left off.

This is quite frustrating, as we routinely record things to wind through
the commercials.
