Fast Forward / Rewind?

[qanda]This thread is about the Philips DVDR3355 DVD player/recorder. Click here to see full specs[/qanda](Actually it’s a DVPR3350, but that was not on the list.)

This product does not seem to have FF/REW functionality. They have a “skip forward 30 seconds” and “skip backward 10 seconds” using the left & right cursor arrows instead.

Is this common to all Phillips HDD/DVD-R recorders?

Can it be fixed with a firmware update?

Or perhaps someone has hacked a fix?

My 3575 has both the skip ( I set mine 30 seconds forward, 15 seconds back) and 2-4-8X FF and REW.
