Just looking through the manual for details on skipping.
The prev/next buttons seems to the be dedicate skip buttons.
Gowinch says skip forward is 60 secs. Is skip back the same amount?
The manual also mentions (section 4. Playback Process Bar) that the volume up and down can also be used for small skips to jump 'dozens of seconds at a time'.
Has any one tried this?
Can anyone confirm (roughly) how much time it actually skips?
Is it useful. It seems a bit fiddly in that you have to press the INFO key to bring up the Process Bar for this function to work.
Thanks in advance
Yes. You are quite right. The Previous/ Next buttons tend towards large skips - ie 8 minutes in a 65 minute file. The Volume +/- buttons skip 1 minute at a time but you do need to press the info bar button first. This is not really a drama as they are right next to each other. But it is another button to push. Having said that I must reiterate that the FF/REW is the smoothest I have ever encountered. No frozen screen it jut rolls on at higher speed on screen - most impressive. Hi to you too - if you go ahead see if you can screw a better price than $550 out of them. And don't forget you might want to investigate the Aldi twin tuner at Aldi on Thursday - $299 is a great price; its a question of how much that price compromises the integrity of the unit. Good luck!
Forgot to mention that Big W had a sale yesterday and I picked up a 320gb external drive for $69. Plugged it in,selected it and now I have a 820GB capacity on my Teac! Too easy!
