    Summary: show jump interval in gui when pressing skip chapter

    Description: when playing back recorded TV, you can use the skip chapter button to jump over an advertisement block (if there is a comskip log).
    It would be nice if the GUI would briefly show how much it jumps (just like it already does when you skip a fixed number of seconds when you press the arrow left/right when playing), because if the comskip log is not perfect, it can jump over a whole block of good programming.

    An indication in the gui showing something like (eg) "+3:40" (it skipped 3mins and 40s) would be very convenient.
    If it then shows something like : "+23:30" it is obvious it jumped more than just the advertisements... ;)
