No way to do it at the moment unless you patch the code.

There is a patch in trac that adds two extra keybindings to jump 60
seconds (http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/8066) which is great if you
use a keyboard or have a huge remote with 100 buttons on it :)

I'm thinking a better option would be to have a popup dialog with a
progress bar something like the edit bar in the video player that allows
you to change the jump amount and jump around the file at will possibly
combining it with a way to set multiple bookmarks and being able to jump
to those bookmarks.
