or the up/down keys (Global/UP and Global/DOWN), which do 0.25 
increments/decrements versus the 0.05 increments of the left/right keys

and then 1 with TV Playback/TOGGLESTRETCH to go to your last-used (0.5x) 
time stretch speed (so after going to 0.5x once, you can return to it 
with one keypress until you exit playback).  Note that TOGGLESTRETCH 
defaults to "last-used" 1.5x when first entering playback.
