Aren't you all forgetting about the option (in Playback on the "Seeking" 

Reverse direction in fast forward/rewind
If enabled, pressing the sticky rewind key in fast forward mode switches 
to rewind mode, and vice versa.  If disabled, it will decrease the 
current speed or switch to play mode if the speed can't be decreased 

And, you should check out the (not available from the UI) options added 
by http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/commits/132808#132808 .  
It looks like you could patch the default speed defines (as done by the 
completely untested--not even compiled--patch attached) and use the 
FFRewSpeed settings to get what you want (although, I'm not sure if 0x 
would work--but feel free to mod the patch and test it).
