I use the Skip Forward and Skip Back buttons all the time.

They used to go forward 30 seconds and back 10 seconds.

With a recent update they now go forward 37 seconds and back 12 seconds.

Many commercials are 30 seconds and the 30 setting worked well.

I also found that the 30 second setting worked well for parts of baseball and football games.

The industry standard for PVR manufacturers seems to be 30 seconds for Forward.

I found a Shaw Remote Control web page that said Forward was 30 seconds.

Why did Shaw change these features to 37/12 ?
