I changed it to 15 seconds and restarted the front end.  However the
setting is not being honored.

I'm assuming this happens when you use your IR remote. If so, you want to
look in your lirc config file. I use xine as a video player, instead of
the default mplayer. My rewind button looks like this:

  remote = hauppauge_pvr
  prog = xine
  button = Rewind
  repeat = 0
  config = SeekRelative-15

The "config = " is what you're looking for. Again, since I don't use
mplayer, I'm not sure of the config, but from what I just Googled, it
likely looks like this: "config = seek -5". You'll want to change that 5
to a 15.

Hope it helps,
