Found the issue posted on Amazon Prime. They state that the slower FF and RW features are now the arrows on the roku remote, not the ff and rw buttons. Seems to be the answer. Now just have to retrain my brain.
Thanks much for response. Crazy Amazon expects people to use the Roku remote differently than the dozens of other channels, and crazy that Roku allows for that bad UI. Hopefully they'll correct the real issue one day so we don't have to remember different controls for different channels. Thanks again!
big difference. thx. im hating roku. no live customer support. insane inability of remotes to do standard **bleep** unless maybe you buy the top tier products. and i need to see whats going on while i rewind and fast forward. need to rewind often due to hearing problems. is there any way to see whats going on while you rewind or fast forward on roku like on a real dvr?
It's up to the channel to implement that and is supposed to be mandatory, but as you've seen Roku doesn't make everyone play by the same rules. At best, all you get is thumbnails at about 10 second intervals.

renojim- thank you so much! It's funny, now it seems kinda obvious to do this but it never occurred to me, lol! I thought it was going to be some lengthy set of directions to change a setting, so what a relief to have such a simple solution! 👏
