progress bar missing on DVR playback

The progess bar (thermometer) isn't displaying when we're watching a recorded show.  It used to display for fast forward, rewind, play and pause.  Now we don't get it at all.  Is this a new "feature"?

Re: progress bar missing on DVR playback

Sometimes you can clear up DVR problems such as this by unplugging the DVR power for a moment, then plugging it back in. You will temporarily lose program guide data, but it will be replenished over a few hours.

Thanks, WarEagle.  That solved the problem.  Strangely, the problem didn't start until after Comcast sent a reset to the cable box.
