Skip Fwd/Back not working on remote for recorded TV in Media Centre
I've just upgraded my Media Centre from Vista x64 to Windows 7 x64.
Previously when watching recorded TV I could use the skip fwd/back buttons on my remote &/or keyboard to skip fwd 30 secs, or back 7 seconds; however this no longer works. They do however work perfectly when watching/listening to Movies/Music.
The on screen skip buttons still perform the same task (fwd 30s, back 7s).
Reading other forum posts I gather this is because the skip buttons are looking for the next track and by its nature recorded TV doesn't have any tracks.
Is there a way of editing the registry to reprogram the buttons to skip fwd a specified time frame when watching recorded TV?
I'm using a logitech dinovo edge keyboard for which I've installed the latest drivers. I also use my iPhone with JumiMouse as a Remote and a Hauppage TV Tuner Remote, all the above have the same problem.

Just in passing, I can attest to the fact that the 30-second skip forward and 7-second skip backward (which I've changed to 12-seconds, as I feel it is better for my needs when overshooting) functions BOTH WORK PERFECTLY... assuming you're using a proper remote.
I'm using the standard Microsoft WMC Remote (A90-00007), and there's a brand new one up for auction right now on eBay if you're interested. I recommend you consider such an option, and your problems will disappear. Incidentally, you can also cause a "multiple skip" by first entering a number (e.g. 5) and then pushing the "skip" button (e.g. 5 x 30 seconds will be the skip result from that single click).
I bought one of these two years ago when I moved from WinXP up to Windows 7 x64 and made it my HTPC under WMC, and it has been the smartest thing I ever did. It's even still running on the original batteries!!
EDIT: oops... just noticed you're in the UK. That eBay auction was here in the USA. But maybe you can find one over there. Anyway, the MS remote works perfectly with WMC.
