Apple TV: Fast Forward / Skip

​Hi,

I have a stupid question: on my Dreambox I have a very nice feature for jumping forward during commercials:

If I press button 9 or 7 the Player is jumping forward (or backward) 5 minutes
If I press button 6 or 4 the Player is jumping forward (or backward) 1 minute
​If I press button 3 or 1 the Player is jumping forward (or backward) 30 seconds

So If now e.g. a commeracial starts and lasts for 4 minutes, then I press 9 and 4 (jump forward for 5 minutes, jumping back for 1 minute).

I really like this feature, because it is for me the fastest way to skip commercials.

Now my questions:
1) How do you handle this or is there a better solution available?​
2) Is this a feature of the player (eg. MrMC) or of the device (Apple TV) and is this somehow possible to do in this combination?

Br,
Johannes

In MrMC settings, change the 5 minutes to 4 minutes.

Ok, so the jump forward via keypad is working with MrMc?

The Siri remote does not have number buttons but you can change the default seek time.

Ok, my mistake. I should have stated, that I am using a Logitech Elite and not the Siri Remote.
