looping media

I have tried to find an answer to this on the list but can't, so 
apologies if it has been discussed before.

I am trying to get specified offsets in a media file repeated using looping.

I have the start and end times in two fields and the play button 
calls the player using those times. This has all been working well 
for some time now.

I have a play button and a 'set start' and 'set end' button which 
inserts the timecodes into the appropriate field. This allows me to 
listen to a media file and to reset timecodes at will. I then have a 
'repeat' button which loops, using the script below.

If I loop, it starts from the correct timecode for the first 
iteration, but then reverts to the previously called start timecode 
for the second and subsequent loops, even though the 'start' field

on mouseup
   set the looping of player "audplayer" to true
   set the currenttime of player "audplayer" to 0
   global samplerate
   put fld "audioname" into TempAud
   set the filename of player "audplayer" to TempAud
   put the timeScale of player "audplayer" into samplerate
   set the playSelection of player "audplayer" to true
   put fld "start" into startFN
   put fld "end" into endFN
   set the currenttime of player "audplayer" to round(samplerate*startFN)
   set the endtime of player "audplayer" to round(samplerate*endFN)
   start player "audplayer"
end mouseup

Any suggestions on how I can get it to loop always from the proper start time?
