Yep, unless the number is > 99, at which point, rather than being
minutes, it's H+:MM, so 99 is 99 minutes and 100 is 60 minutes (1:00
hours) and 999 is 10hrs and 39min (because of the crazy combination of
hours and minutes greater than 60), which is identical to 1039 (so don't
use the crazy stuff).
My recommendation is to use minutes from 0-59 (or 60), then above 60,
use H+:MM, so 101, 110, 240, etc.
There's also <number> Rew (<), which takes you to that much time from
the start of the show (i.e. identical to <number> I) or--more
useful--<number> FFwd (>), which takes you to that much time from the
end, i.e. to allow you to verify that you got the whole show by hitting
2> to verify you see end credits. Very useful on those
mid-day/mid-night movies that are often (at least here) delayed by 10-15
