When Lightbox first started it kept trace of where you were in series by marking next episode to watch in yellow. This has now stopped and after viewing episode in a series when you come back to series it always reverts to series 1 episode 1.
The same browser I always use (Chrome) and I am not deleting history or anything else.
Anyone else having this problem?

Seems to work fine most of the time unless the next episode requires you to scroll down the episode list to find it. That's when it goes back to series 1 episode 1 for me.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

That will be it. I am watching a multi series programm with 20+ episodes per series. How the heck do we remember where we were then. Do we have to write down each epsiode number as we watch it?
Surely it cannot be too hard to make it mark the correct episode. If XBMC can do then Lightbox need to come up with a solution

Agree it really needs some work

 

  • You cant bookmark an episode or send some one a link (it will kick you to the front page if you aren’t logged in)
  • There is no "Play Next" button when an episode ends it takes at least 3 clicks to start the next one (back to show page, select episode, select full screen again)
  • It doesn’t remember what episode you are up to.
  • Your login can expire while your watching an episode... which then kicks you to the front page
