Can you customise the duration of the 30 sec "skip" feature?

I like that you can press the right-arrow on the remote to skip 30s forward in a recording but is there a way to change that to, say, 1 minute?

Not possible on the 360s - but it is easy to press skip twice.

We just press it eight times which matches most ITV ad breaks.

Re: Can you customise the duration of the 30 sec "skip" feature?

You can also experiment with the following :-

To skip forwards/backwards 15 minutes in recordings - press MIC and say "go forward 15 minutes" or "go back 15 minutes"
You can also say "fast forward 10 minutes" or whatever amount of time you want

To avoid adverts on streamed & on demand say "skip forward three minutes" or "fast forward 3 minutes"

The left and right arrow buttons either side of the OK button skip forward 30 seconds and back 10 seconds

When fast forwarding press TV button and that will switch off the fast forward arrows etc. For Stop press the back button or pause button, TV button also stops and puts you back to TV.

To play back in slow motion press pause then Fast Forward

You can also press and hold left or right when playing back non-live content which will 'scrub' across the time while still playing back at normal speed. Once you settle on the time you want it'll skip straight to there.

If you do this in On Demand (not in an app) you also get a thumbnail preview of the the video at that point.
