Ignite TV remote control ( or out of control) is pathetic. When fast-forward or rewinding it's imposable to stop the show where I want when I press play. It's like a child wrote the code. Apology....a child could do a better job.
Out of the many issues with Ignite TV this is by far the most aggravating, try to rewind a goal or a touchdown and you'll get my drift.
The whole remote is a joke have to press 10-20 times just to find stuff.
@pboc If you only want to go back just a few seconds, or go back to a specific point with any precision , the REW button will not work... but you can do this with voice commands. Try using, "Go back 10 seconds". Hopefully Comcast can get this fixed soon.
I would speculate it is because it from is an internet feed that is buffered rather than a local media device. Could it be improved... no idea. It is a minor annoyance, but a 5-10 second disruption is really no big deal.
Why is the fast forward and rewind so imprecise? It always goes back a bit when go back to normal speed and rarely stops where I want it to.
It is due to a Comcast bug/implementation quirk that has gone unfixed for ages.
I have tried to explain why the problem occurs in this post: https://communityforums.rogers.com/t5/Ignite-TV/Fast-Forward-Function-Ignite-TV/m-p/474066/highlight...
The strange thing is that you can go back to any specific spot using voice commands ("Go back six seconds") but cannot using Rewind/Play.
where do you have to be to do this. I do it and all it does is bring up the guide for channel 0030....
