I guess it depends on the file type and encode. I can't FF or REW on my MPEG files (though you can type the time code in to do a direct jump), but my AVI & MP4 files can FF & REW just fine.
I also use the time code... found that very quickly. It sometimes does not work when I stream... never worked great, but after the firmware upgrade, it got "iffy" at best. When connected via hd, it works okay... sometimes takes me back too far or to the first 3 min of the movie. It is not reliable and not a great experience. IMO. Not as great as it could or should be...
Yea, I'd rather not do anything except burn into a dvd folder... no avi, mp4, etc... time is my issue... rather burn to dvd folder and be done. At first I was going to send here and there, using usb hd, etc... now I'll store on htpc and whs.... that is it... whs as backup location (drives not duplicated), pulling movies from htpc. Too much of a pain to "manage" a hd.... learned that quickly.
Not saying I won't go avi, mp4... I'm still trying to work this out... should be much smoother, with easier play back of dvd ts folders (you can, but it is not good -- digging through folders, etc..)...
