Same issue here "now unable to fast forward and rewind also by using the cursor navigation pad" . This is a very frustrating change to the remote functionality. I'm sure like many here the last thing you want is to take more time and effort to complain versus Spectrum simply replying they will provide a new update or instructions on getting that functionality back.
Obviously change is the new constant.
Same issue here. Cisco box, and Sony Bravia 900e remote. We would really love this feature back, the actual Play Pause etc. on the Sony remote are tiny and in a poor location.
Minor annoyance, in the grand scheme of things, but irritating.
