Default Question about/problem with XBox HD player

I've noticed on my 360 when I'm watching an HD DVD and have to leave for something, if I power down the xbox, stop the movie, or eject the movie then I have to start it over from the beginning. Adversely, when I do any of those things with a standard DVD in the HD drive the movie will pick right back up where I left off. Iíve updated my Xboxís software and tried several different HD movies with no luck. Is this an issue with all HD DVD players? Or is it just Xbox specific (or is it just a problem with my Xbox?)? Iíve been looking around on Google and Microsoftís site and even submitted a help ticket with MS and canít seem to find anything even related to this problem, so I thought Iíd try my luck here. Any help is most appreciated.

It's just not supported yet, even in the standalone players I think. I can't think of any reason why it couldn't be done so hopefully it will be an option in a further firmware update.

Let's hope so...
I could go either way as far as the "war" on BD vs HD is concerned, but that would be enough for me to go BD.

You could always use the bookmark feature to save your spot before you power down. Only takes a second or two to.

That's what I do, anyway...

or just try not to sit on the remote control and accidentally switch off the player.
