    when you use FF1 and stop it back up a bit.
    When you use FF2 is backs up a bit more
    and so on through FF4 which backs up the most [a few sec]
    The idea is by the time you see where you want to stop, you've past it so it tries to back up so you don't miss what you wanted.

    It skips back in time the equivalent of an average reflex. You see where you want to watch, it takes maybe 0.2 s for you to press the play button and it skips back 0.2 s times times you fast forward speed.

    I'd like to see it not auto correct on FF1. FF1 is slow enough that it doesn't need to correct. Does anyone else feel the same way?

    yes, I agree. Also, this function seems to work really well on MPEG2 and SD channels. The autocorrect on the MPEG4 locals doesn't operate the same way, at least on my system. Sometimes it autocorrects, sometimes it doesn't. When it does, it never goes back as far as when I'm on MPEG2 or SD channels. This doesn't bode to well for mid-to-late September when the new HD channels come online as MPEG4 broadcasts.

    I agree FF1 should have no auto correct.

    The FF Correction on FF1 is perfect for my family. I would ask that it not be changed at all. All are tweaked perfectly for us.
