Sorry to ask a question again that I can see has been asked before, but I just cannot find an answer and so many of thew wiki links I click on seem to be broken.

As others have mentioned, fast forward and rewind only seems to be possible at 4x and suggestions have been made to use the skip/replay buttons instead to jump ahead by the time periods configured in the MP2 client for instant skip percent and player skip steps.

No matter what I do, I cannot get this to work for me - fast forward/rewind/skip/replay when used all pause the video for a second then return to the very start of the video being played.

It does not matter whether the video is recorded TV or a movie from my collection I cannot get this to work. I also cannot rewind or fast forward live television but can pause it.

All of the media I have tried works fine in MCE, Kodi, WMP and can be skipped/replayed and fast forwarded and rewound without going back to the start of the file.

I have tried selecting other splitters and decoders in MP2 but this does not seem to make any difference. I use a remote control for navigation and this is working fine for other programs. I can click on the progress bar on screen with the mouse and this does move the video to the point I have clicked on, but remote navigation seems to not work.

I have used MCE Buddy to convert TS recordings to other formats just in case navigation may be more successful to no avail.

I am currently using Windows 10, MP2 and the MCE skin (although I can't see the skin having anything to do with this issue) and all remote keys are correctly mapped.

As a long time MCE user, I am very conscious of issue that additional codecs can introduce, so no more have been installed other than those present on the system by default following installation of MP2. The splitter and codecs are all currently set to the default LAV settings.

Is there some really obvious MP2 noob thing I am missing here?

Apologies again if this has been addressed or answered elsewhere.

I'm using the WMC skin - with recorded TV the fast forward button does 2x with one click (I'm using a wireless mouse as controller) and 4x with a second. The rewind button doesn't so anything.
I miss the opportunity to skip forwards and backwards, having had that with MS WMC and JRiver (where you can do it with the mouse wheel, really nice especially as you can configure the skip interval.
However ge2301 has said that (s)he has implemented skipping in the WMC skin at least for the next release.

    The next realease contains some major changes (x64 support, new skin, ...), that need to be validated well. That's why it need time, though already developed for 8 month. Probably until middle of the year ... maybe earlier ;)
