Media Center

What do I need to do to get Media Center to remember where I stop or pause a dvd when I'm unable to watch the entire movie in one sitting? I can pause the movie, and either shut down or "sleep" the computer, but when I restart the computer and start Media Center to watch the dvd where I left off, the DVD starts from the beginning... Is there something I can do in the "Setup" screens to force Media Center to resume the DVD where I left off at?
Thanks for ANY  advice...

Hi RaynMan_KC


There is no such option in Windows Media Center to resume the playback from where you stopped, after closing the Media Center. As media center closes when you restart the computer, and after resuming from sleep media center would have closed the DVD or the video file playing.


However, I will suggest you to pause the video that you are playing and then lock the computer if you are not using it or else you may also continue to work on the computer after pausing the video. Whenever you want to watch the video from where you paused it; you can just click on play button.
