Yes, this is a request we've heard from several people (although relatively few, interestingly). We're definitely looking into it!

Is this a request for those who have an interest to speak up now? Smiley Happy If so, consider this one strong vote. I'd love to see this feature...

Thanks.

I also endorse (with another strong vote) implementation of some sort of fast forward and reverse feature (within a track). My wife has a lot of classical disks with long tracks, and she would like to be able to speed forward or back within a track.

Please add me to this list. I would say essential for classical music and audio books and desireable for other genres. I highly recommend this device anyway but with this feature it would become unconditional.
Please Roku ...

Yes, add me to the request list for this feature. It is a common feature found on most CD and media players.

We listen to radio "archive" streams and jumping back or forward (via wmp) is very useful for replaying specific audio spots.

Here's another request for this. FF/Rewind was painfully absent to me, almost instantly. (Though I've been thrilled with my SoundBridge in nearly every other aspect!)

Me too. Everytime I use the Soundbridge I find that I wish I had that feature.
Thanks,

Okay, okay! We get the message! Smiley LOL It's not an easy thing to do with streamed, compressed content, so don't expect this next week or anything, but we'll sure look into it.

Add me please. I think from the reviews of the Roku in Hifi/PC mags, this is their only complaint!
