Sorry just to clarify, I'm referring to the seek forward/back buttons, which on my set are set to 30 and 10 seconds.

I don't really accept that I shouldn't be using it like that. I've tried the sticky ffwd, and I do use it occasionally, but I find holding the seek/jump forward much more efficient for skipping quickly through a show. It worked fine for a number of years until it broke in 0.22.

Fortunately now someone has :-) (although I find it hard to believe I'm the only one)
