Fast Forwarding


when fast forwarding on my new Virgin V6 box, when I press play it rolls back about 8-10 seconds to re-start .
Is there a way of changing this to start at the precise moment i press play as i don't want to watch the last advert again . Start it later i hear you say but that is rather frustrating when watching cricket or football as i see what happens albeit in fast motion.

Thanks for your help

Long time since I have been on these forums. Hope this helps.

The way I do it is I stop the ff by pressing pause, then when you hit play it will be in the exact place you stopped it with the pause.

If you press the skip buttons (arrow with a bar at the tip) situated below the ff/rew dial, it skips the playback in 30 second intervals, i.e, 8 x presses on the right skip, will advance 4 minutes. I use this method to skip adverts.

Yes, the rollback is bloody annoying at times but you get used to it. I prefer the skip method usually.
