Controlling Attached Movies

can you control an attached movie?

how do you script a button to control an attached movie clip?

i have content loading into a holder called hover_mc.

i would like my pause, rewind and FFwd buttons to control the content that is also loaded into hover_mc.

but the content that is loading into hover_mc is loaded with attachMovie and it seems that the buttons can’t control “attached movies”…

i have tried things like
on (release) {

running a trace shows that hover_mc is in frame 1 - which is frame 1 of the main FLA. it cant read _currentframe of what is being loaded INTO hover_mc.

any ideas?
