Watched status not saving

I am having an issue where certain programs won't save their watched status from the Apple TV. They will be marked as watched and then an hour or two later I noticed they are back to unwatched. I have tried manually marking shows as watched within the app and it does the same thing. It seems to stick (so far) if I set them as watched manually from the server.

tvOS 10.2
Plex App 1.10

    So last Saturday I posted about the screensaver coming on, and tonight I have a problem like the one posted above.

    Why does it always happen when I watch something with my wife?

    Anyway, we were watching a movie and both times that I paused and went to restart, it went back to the beginning!

    The first time I was able to 'fast forward' and then restart the movie. But for about a minute or so it would play 5 - 10 seconds and then stutter momentarily. But after that, it played ok.

    The second time it paused, again it went back to the start - I fast forwarded, and then it stuttered as the time before, but never stopped stuttering.

    Eventually I bowed to the inevitable and faced the humiliation of having to go upstairs to find the DVD so we could watch the end of the movie!

    I can post more details if necessary, but the movie was nothing special - an average mp4 - not hi res. I have a dedicated server with an i5 processor, so more than enough power.

    Wait a minute, there was one thing unusual about this movie - it was mono - I don't know if that helps?

    Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Best wishes

    Just to update here, even marking as watched on the server doesn't save, it just took a while longer to revert the watched status.
