Solved! Go to Solution.
Other devices have controlls that change how much time is jumped on Iplayer.
The Iplayer on NowTv is set to respond this way only.
The interface is slower on the NowTV box...
Same. Mainly bought for iPlayer so this is a shame. Rewind/fast forward is essentially pointless aside from to skip through an already watched episode if resume doesn't resume from where left off. No good for going back to check a missed line.
The faster the GUI of the device the more controll Iplayer gives the user.
Just found this thread because I was wondering the same thing.
BTW at the moment, watching Top Gear, single presses of the left/right arrows appear to skip 7 or 8 minutes rather than 5, although I did see it only jump about a minute once.
Another vote for better control from me. Actually, I'm going to try contacting the iPlayer team...
