I have had similar problems with ff/rew in the past i found that it
came down to database issues, using the methods suggested by Michael
above didnt help too much so i wiped the database and started afresh.
This sorted out all my problems. Obviously i was happy to lose any non
backed up recordings etc so may not be perfect solution for everybody.

I would suggest backing up your database, wiping it then starting from
scratch and see if the problem persists, if it does then you can iron
out the database and reload your backup. If the problem goes away then
you know where the problem is and then its a case of either working
with the backup database to get rid of the problem or starting afresh
depending on your preferences.
