Smile Where do we submit Enhancement Requests - Two requests

I searched on "enhancement Request" and didn't find an official email for enhancement requests. I would like to submit two.

1. PLAY FROM BEGINNING: This one might be possible already. I come from ReplayTV and because many of us in the family watch the same show at different times, I would like a "play from beginning". Watching a show always seems to start where the last person left off, even if at 59 minutes and 30 seconds... I know you can use a mouse to "slide" the status bar back to the beginning of the show but you might catch different parts while you did that. And I really hate using the mouse to watch TV. Maybe this is already possible and I'm missing it.

2. MCE RECEIVER SERVICE: Have Sage "check" occasionally to see if the MCE Receiver service is running similar to what BeyondTV does and warn the user to shut it off. Even a nag screen on startup would be fine with me (could add a checkbox "don't show this error again" with the ability to reset the message in the setup screens somewhere). I know I disabled mine off months ago. *somehow* it turned back on and I've no idea how... maybe a windows update?? If Sage checked that on start-up it would have saved me a ton of time and also eliminated a support ticket I opened with Sage (would have saved them time and $$ too).

If anyone knows an easy work around for #1 let me know. Also, please post the "enhancements" email address.

My multi function stop plugin, and SageMC both have a 'restart playback' function: press STOP;REW and file will seek to start.

Alternatively, set+clear the 'Watched' status before starting playback in the advanced options popup to reset the last-watched position to 0

Another alternative, the commands TimeScroll ; REW2; TimeScoll will seek to start.

There is an option in detailed setup somewhere (Advanced or Customize) which clears the watched status on playback, so that if the file has been completely watched, playback will start from zero.

You can submit requests/suggestions to SageTV via support requests or bug reports. They both get there.

For #2, can't you just set up a login script or scheduled task with the appropriate NET STOP command?
