This is a helpful reply. Thank you.

2. Not sure exactly what you mean by paused status. You can't pause on one box and resume on another per se. What you can do is stop the movie in one room and resume from the same point on another box.
You should definitely see synchronized watch status. If you're not getting that, I would say your central db isn;t set up correctly on all machines.
Not only setting up the sources on each machine separately but also setting the view on each machine to be similar enough that the synchronized status can be noticed.
The subtlety between "paused" and "stopped" alluded me until you mentioned it in the previous post. If I'm watching a video downstairs and 'pause" it then go upstairs to finish it in the bedroom, it would only work if I "resume" playback. This is a well hidden setting that appears in the Settings-Video-Playback screen (I think it was that screen..) It's not easy to resume a movie without discovering this well hidden setting.
I have added the same sources to all four of my xbmc machines (downstairs AppleTV, upstairs ATV, laptop Winddows7, desktop W7). and they all seem to in synch regarding watched,/unwatched status using Dharma and Alask Revisited.
Thank for you help.
