Sorry, that is just a wild-assed guess, and an incorrect one (which not all that surprisingly fits your usual pattern). If it weren't, you could explain it to us, couldn't you? We're waiting. How is 30SLIP not a "manual function"? It's certainly not automatic. Don't you have to manually invoke it to get it to work? This stuff is really not all that deep; even a chimp should be able to grasp the concepts. The algorithm is a simple as "go into FFWD for x amount of seconds per button press, and then go back into play mode". It's not brain surgery. It does not have to calculate a timecode target to jump to or even decode a single packet. The critical difference here is whether the timecode is contiguous or not does not even matter (but it does matter for 30SKIP). Maybe 10 lines of code. The simplest solution is usually the best one. Touchy, touchy, VOS. It might be time to refill the prescription. Actually, my mother was from the @#%#% family, and my father also has @#%#% heritage. We have a long tradition of @#%#% and even have a @#%#% coat of arms. But calling other forum members names is not really allowed here, and you have already been reported, my potentially questionable heritage nonwithstanding. And @#%#% is still probably better than whatever @#%#% some of the rest of us might have crawled out from under . I also like your new tradition of starting each post with a single quoted word representing what is in your mind at the moment that you failed to understand the simple and obvious. But then I, even if I'm a @#%#%, am also a qualified expert in the field of transport stream technology by virtue of getting paid to work directly and intimately with it every day for the last decade or so, and you... ...are not. So out of the goodness of my heart, I'll allow you yet another mulligan. That there is so little hope for you only makes me sad. I'm out.
