As you've found if you press the fast forward button you have 4 speeds depending on how many times you press the button, when fast forwarding you can press the TV button to turn off the graphics, you can then press the play button to start watching.
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.
The left and right arrow buttons either side of the OK button skip forward 30 seconds and back 10 seconds.
Have you tried using the voice button?
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"
I've found that the length of advert breaks on some individual channels appear to be mostly of the same set length, so for example if I know the channel I'm viewing usually has an add break that's 4 minutes in length then I can say, "fast forward 4 minutes"
I too had been used to the V6, and as a 70 year old I would have expected it to be major step and learning curve for me due to the differences. However it was far from a major step. It took me around 10 days to get used to using the 360 remote, and the 360's functions.
I prefer the smaller 360 remote, but each to their own. It's also possible to use third party remotes with the 360.
You can use the OneForAll URC7125 - use the SimpleSet setup process and choose Ziggo manufacturer
Also the Logitech Harmony remote. You need to set them up as a "Ziggo Mediabox Next"
If you prefer, or are used to using your normal TV remote then see if you can control your 360 with that.
I can also use my LG Smart remote to control my 360. On my particular model I can search for the device name Virgin. It can also use Ziggo, or Ziggo Mediabox Next as the device name. Other forum members have set up their Samsung smart TV remotes to work with the 360.
You can also control the 360 by using the Virgin TV Go app.
