OK, this is a bit odd, whenever i go to Lightbox to watch a show i am watching, it has the page with the show details and says on the left hand side, Play episode 6 season 5 or whatever, but as soon as I press play it starts playing season 1 eps 1, to get any other episode i need to go to the episodes page and select the episode i want.




eg currently i am watching Unforgettable and am on season 3 episode something, I turn everyhing on select lightbox, select Unforgettable click on the play episode X season 3 and it starts playing S1 Eps 1.




Is anyone else getting this?




i am trialling lightbox as a new user, and this is the behaviour i have seen since starting the trial

I've had similar issues where it would play some old episode.  I think maybe it it is not registered as 'watched' then it will go back to it each time. 


Maybe seek to the end of the first episode and let the player reach the end.


I've seen this on netflix before too. Not that common though.

Yes, I have had this problem since I signed up for Lightbox six months ago. I have just accepted that I need to accept the extra hassle of manually navigating to the next unwatched episode. I have tried watching each preceding episode right to the end, but it doesn't seem to make a difference.


I have also had problems in recent days with the Lightbox app being unresponsive when I initially open it. 


Seems like sloppy testing to me.

Cheers guys, I have in the past watched the first episodes to the end, and it seems to still do it, just an annoyance, never seen it happen on any other app.




hopefully the combine with neon will see an upgrade
