It seems to be seeking OK, it's just taking a long time when the skip fwd button is held down, probably because it's playing after every skip instead of just showing the still frame.

You probably shouldn't be using the skip forward button held down.
(Sure, it would be nice if it worked--patches appreciated--but I doubt
/anyone/ has ever really tested it that way). Instead, if you want to
keep moving quickly through the show, use sticky fast forward (>) or
sticky rewind (<).
And, remember there's both a "seek" button (default 30s forward (Right)
and (the useless) 5s backwards (Left) (which you probably need to change
to at least 7, probably more like 10 or 15s)) and a jump button (default
10min forward (PgDown) or back (PgUp)), where the amount of show each
skips can both be adjusted in the Playback Group settings.
