Is there any particular reason you still use FF and REW? It is much
better to use the skip forwards and backwards keys - it is very fast
an accurate to skip over ad breaks. The old FF/REW way of doing it is
how VCRs used to work, but is not anywhere near as good as using skip
on digital media. I have simply never used FF/REW since I started
using MythTV and discovered the skip keys and configured them
