Thanks Klaas, I would never have thought to look there. As said it was
years ago, when I first started using mythtv and was looking under
every rock in settings for anything useful. I use it every day to
navigate past commercials and to the real start of a program. I have
the pageup/down under arrow up/down and I think it is the default in
playback, but it could also by default be under the ch up/down keys.
I also use the jump at the end of a program. Sometimes there is still
so much recorded after the end that else the auto-set-watched is not
