On my Sammy, that functionality you described works ok, and I do always use "less" too.
The problem is as I described in the above post of mine.
It does not work at all the same as DVR compensation did before, when it worked correctly. If you stop, say at a commercial, and try to pause, and then read something... and then hit play again, from being paused, it jumps back a bunch of seconds and makes "navigating", ironically, impossible and clunky and broken..
It wasn't beta tested obviously, or if it was, it was beta tested by people who do not know how it should work, or else it was programmed by people who do not know how it should work after you just hit pause, and then play again.
It should not skip back every single time you hit play, only when you hit play when it is already fast forwarding.
Maybe they had to re-work it when they were slapped with a law-suite or whatever, or write their own code or something. I have no idea why it is broken now, but it is not the same "DVR compensation" that we had before. Not by a long shot.
