Missing Features D Stream App for 2017 Samsung TV

I have a 2017 Samsung TV and the D Stream app. Last update was September 20, 2021. The app is missing several functions that are available on other newer TVs. Fast-forwarding does not show thumb-sized updated image over scrollbar. Can't pause and rewind live TV, etc... it's basically missing a bunch of functions and features that my Roku TVs and other more recent TVs have. There does not seem to be a more updated app available than Sep 20, 2021. I tried deleting the app and reinstalling and that did not help. Any ideas?

The apps vary from one to the other, plus among different manufacturers. Plus some some of the newer updated apps won't work on older Smart TVs.
Just like with fast forward and reverse, on Roku apps you get a small preview screen so you can see where you are in the FF/R procedure. On the Fire Stick there is no preview screen and you have to guess where you are while FF/R.
