How can I set the skip ahead to less than 30 seconds?

With the other version of the app you had the option to skip ahead 15 seconds with a program you recorded. Now you no longer have this option making it a guessing game as to when the commercials will be over. Can you please bring back the skip ahead 15 seconds option?

I also would like to skip ahead 15 sec.  With the latest update it appears that only 30 sec. skip ahead is supported.

This new skip-ahead is really unusable:

1) it skips ahead too far to use in various situations [e.g., during football game individual plays]

2) you cannot click repeatedly to keep advancing; there is a delay before you can click again, making the skipping a much longer process.

Why did you degrade something that worked well? [As in, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"]

I have had to stop using the app and login to the website on my PC to use the 15-second skip.

With this new version I am also experiencing "glitches" in recordings, where while watching a recording my screen suddenly goes black for a couple of seconds then resumes play beyond what was on for those few seconds.  Happens often.  Anyone else experiencing this?

If you have an Amazon fire stick or fire tv you can skip ahead 30 seconds by hitting your circle button to the right. If you want to rewind you hit it to the left. I still wish you could go ahead 12 hrs on the guide and not have to begin at the start of the channels
