Fast Forward and Rewind function alternative for Samsung TV
I undestand where you coming from with your frustration. I felt the same after I bought Synology DS213+ NAS server. And I have Samsung SmartTV. Streaming videos from NAS over WIFI works great, but I guess all who end up here in this forum thread are having problem FF/REW not working on TV remote. And what movie experience is that! So I was trying all of the media servers out there none of them solved the problem. Ok in between I found an Android app for my smart phone called ArcMC and this is something very good. You can select a movie from any comp or NAS you have and send it right to TV or even into your playing console (like Xbox) and movie starts. And from mobile you can jump to any location in movie with ease. I tried then lot of these different apps but this one was for me moust easiest way to navigate through media server and your playing options. So I solved the problem for myself. While not able to scroll movie, its something that takes you back to the old options making that all DLNA stuff unuseful. Samsung itself has also remote control apps but as always there are issues - its meant to work only with newer and expencive kind of phone models.
But while I sometimes still want to use remote control of TV, I still was searching for options to make it work.
Finally I found information that you can jump back and forth with directional keys on remote < and > Pressing them longer jumps more in time. Useful if you want to just rewind back a bit. And final needed solutiun to get into any point in movie. Like you said you watched it to point 45 minutes. Just press TOOLS button on remote and you can choose time line and tell to the movie to jump into any point just with directional keys or through number pad keys on remote control. Pretty useful. I am kind of surprised you cant find that kind of info on web so easily. So I decided to let all know. Hope it helps people. For me case closed and I got at least the control back over the movie when streaming it to TV.
