Fast-forward UI change
@DIRECTVhelp requested I create a new post for this..
I'm using a Firetv device (FireOS 18.104.22.168 with v22.214.171.124522 of the DirecTV Stream app). The UI for fast-forwarding appears to have updated today. Previously I could fast forward in increments of 2x, 4x, 8x or 16x normal speed. The UI would smoothly update the progress bar and time within the recorded program so that I could see how far I was fast-forwarding. Post-update the UI to only have options for fast-forward with values of "1,2,3,4" -- I don't know what those correspond to (are they the same multiples of normal speed?). The progress bar and time do not update smoothly during fast-forward -- it seems to jump. It makes it really hard to determine how far one has fast-forwarded in a recorded program (ex: watching a recorded baseball game and attempting to fast-forward through commercials while trying not to miss the start of the next inning). It makes the service much less user friendly for this purpose. My hope would be that the UI change on fast forwarding could be reverted or otherwise improved to provide the viewer visibility to how fast one is fast-forwarding and where one is within a recorded program.
