Timeshifting FF preview (1 Viewer)

Hi all,

I have an issue where if I am watching a tv program, and decide to use the timeshift buffer, when I fast forward or rewind, I dont get a 'preview' of what is on the screen, rather the screen freezes and the progress bar moves, but I have to guess where the ads end and the show starts again. During playback of videos I have stored on the computer, this doesnt happen and I can see what I am fast forwarding.

Is this a common issue, is it easy to fix? Perhaps it has something to do with the mpeg codec I am using? I have tried nvidia purevideo, mpv, and ffdshow. My timeshift is currently set to .ts format.

Any help would be much appreciated, it is rather frustrating.

Known issue, but nothing seems to be planned to get it fixed yet. I believe it's something to do with rates greater that 2x
