In my keys.txt file it says:

- E or M enters/exits edit mode.
  - The left and right keys move forward and backward.
  - The up and down arrow keys alter the amount of time you jump forward and
    backward.  Increments are: nearest cutpoint, nearest video keyframe,
    1 frame, 0.5 seconds, 1 second, 20 seconds, 1 minute, 5 minutes, and
    10 minutes.
  - The page up and down keys move forward and backward to the nearest cut
  - The < and > keys move forward or backward by 10 times the normal jump
  - Space/Enter allows you to set or delete a cut point.
  - 'Z' loads the commercial skip list (if one exists) into the cutlist.
  - 'C' and 'Q' clear all cut points in the cutlist.
- X queues the current recording for transcoding.
- O brings up menu to allow toggling settings such as Commercial Auto-Skip,
    Auto-Expire, etc.
- D exits the current recording and displays the Delete menu for it.

The bit about the < and > keys may be relevant :-)
