how the siri remote interacts with MrMC will soon be changing. it'll be much more like other apps on the apple tv, where you swipe around.

one thing to learn is that tapping the edges of the remote, not clicking, is also a way to move the cursor around efficiently, when a swipe won't do.

in current release of MrMC skipping is done by tapping, not clicking, the edges of the remote. tap up is a chapter ahead, tap down is a chapter back. tapping left and right edges repeatedly will increment up time.

but this will be changing soon to conform to the typical apple tv app. so, don't get too accustomed to it. :)
Hi. I'm having trouble understanding the above reply that refers to how things will be in the future.

I have the 3.4.1 Beta, and I can't figure out any easy way to skip forward and backward by chapters. I see the chapter numbers (e.g. 1 of 5) in the lower left ... and I can bring up the "expert SIRI" to tap chapter forward and back.

However, I just cannot figure out whether there is a simple gesture (either expert or not) that will allow me in the new MrMC to move forward or backward by a chapter.

Any opinions on this?



thanks

Instructions in the testflight thread say that clicking top or bottom of touchpad skips by chapter or big jump if no chapter data available. You should be interacting there re testflights.

Since you're in the beta you should be reading the beta thread. It's up and down click for chapters with the Siri remote.
