BT TV fast forward time length change

Go to solution
I have a BT TV Youview box for a few years and have always wondered if there is a way to adjust the length of time the fast forward button skips?
60 seconds can sometimes be a bit long if I just want to skip a small section of a recording.

@kissoff_matt it sounds like you're pressing the skip button which skips 60 seconds and it's not possible to adjust that.

The fast forward button looks like this    fast forward.png it's directly above the skip button you're pressing and if you keep pressing it will adjust the forward speed. When you reach the bit you want to watch, press play. 

I find this the best method when you only want to fast forward a few seconds.

Surely the question posed was about the skip option time so the fast forward and rewind button functions are irrelevant

The OP is wanting to skip sections shorter than 60 seconds in which case the FF button is more useful - unless it is on an internet channel recording where they run the risk of losing audio doing it that way.

But the actual answer needed (but not hoped for) is there is no known way to alter the skip forward time

FWIW the 60 second skip forward and 15 second skip backward seem about right to me and I can't see an easy way they could be made user time variable so I'm less than in the queue to have the ability to alter settings to give a shorter skip forward time

I agree it is not a high priority in my opinion though I prefer a two minute forward skip as that fits most neatly with ad breaks in general.
