AW: [vdr] Feature Request: 10 Second Jump from BigPatch, "switch timer"

Hey Laz,

you speak from y hart! Exactly - there are some rules behind commercial
brakes. This also applies to Germany as the media law regulates how many,
how often, how long and so. I still use "noad" to detect the breaks. This
works in most cases, but our RTL knows how to trick it. So "jump forward 1
minute, step back -10 sec, maybe two times" and there we go. It's the same
rule that applies to the Internet. Everything just 3 clicks away - very
handy, I would say.

Maybe there are more people out there that would this support this feature,
as keys "1" and "3" are anyways not assigned during playback.

Regards,
Martin

I always copy the relevant lines for kGreen and kYellow (near the end of 
menu.c), rename them to k1 and k3, and change the delay to 10 s, leaving 
Green and Yellow to stay as 1 min skip.

The majority of advert breaks in the UK (on terrestrial channels) seem to be

about 4 minutes (I've got another key set to skip 4 minutes forwards...) but

some are +/- 10 or 20 s and being able to skip 10 s is very handy for me.

Cheers,

Laz
