Search for "timeseekforward". There are several settings that control the forward and back step size.

your Plugin works really great for the Basic Features, but I want to customize it a little bit.
I read trough this thread and tried somethings described here but nothing did really work :-(
For Example I want to toogle between FullScreen with the Red Button and Change AspectRatio with the BlueButton on my MCE Remote.
How can I accomplish that?

I am using MCE7 mostly for TV functions and using the XBMC plugin in MCE to use XBMC for everything else (music,movies etc)
The mceremote plugin is really great for setting up the remote to work nice and easy in XBMC.
But i have one question, is it possible to disable the mce functions like LIVETV, Green window button, Recorded TV etc when in XBMC
and have the functions back when returning to MCE?
I have tried all different configs but i guess that mceremote plugin is changing the register permanently. Is there another way to fix this?
Sorry if this is a noob question but i really need to fix this as this is my setup until xbmc get TV functions (and we are all waiting for this )

The "Restore default MCERemote settings" configures the remote to use the standard Windows Media Center keyboard shortcuts as described in http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb189249.aspx and these should work both in XBMC and in Media Center.
For example the shortcut for Live TV is ctrl-T. In XBMC this currently just pops up a little message saying "you pressed ctrl-T" because there's no TV functionality in XBMC (yet). When you're running Media Center ctrl-T should open Live TV.

Thank you JR for a fast answer but it is not working 100%...I reset my remote to windows default in plugin. All is working in MCE but in xbmc the mce functions open when pressing the mce function keys (liveTV, Green button, guide etc)
Then i reconfigure remote in plugin as "apply current settings to remote" and now it works fine in XBMC but in MCE the following happens. LiveTV opens recorded TV, Green button do nothing, Guide is ok, dvd menu opens movie library guess that this is ok, recorded tv is ok (opens recorded tv).
I need some help to resolve this, can i do a manual reconfigure of keyboard.xml?

Something for both the wiki and your next version of mceremote and known buttons...
I have this remote:
It is a mediagate MG-IR02BK but its different from the one listed on the wiki (which I suppose is a GP-IR02BK) and has a few new buttons but is missing the teletext and coloured buttons.
In their place it has "DVD" buttons:
Zoom - This matches to button 27 "Unknown Asrock Ion 330 top left button"
Angle - button number 4B
Audio - button number 4C
Subtitle - button number 4D
I changed mine to the following (and changed Guide to something else, you were defaulting it to ctrl-g as well):
Then in my keymap I have the following:
The fullscreen command works well enough for zoom as in xbmc its two discrete commands, zoom in and zoom out, and it doesn't loop around when it goes past max.
Besides, the AR command on the angle button allows me to cycle through presets which also affects the zoom.
The other two allow full cycling so if you have multiple audio languages you can cycle through them and back to english, the same as with subtitle, which also does a cycle through to none (disabling it).
FWIW, I would suggest having the rec. tv button go to tv shows window specifically in your keymap template as I have in mine above, and videos go to movies, though I am not sure if that will interfere with other PVR plugins or even future PVR support under XBMC. I realise not all skins support the breakdown of videos into movies and tvshow buttons specifically and not everyone uses library mode either but it wouldn't hurt to have them commented out in your template.

I see this thread has been moved to a forum that I don't watch. You might want to ask again in the Windows forum as I probably won't see future posts in this thread.
By default my addon sets the Green button to send the keypress ctrl-shift-W. This means it will no longer start WMC. To set the green Windows button back to the default choose the "Configure MCERemote settings" option, scroll down to find the setting for "Windows" and set this to "mce" (without the quotes). Remember to click OK to save your changes as the Settings dialog doesn't warn you if you exit without saving.
Re the Live TV: my addon sets this to ctrl-T, which I thought was the Media Center shortcut for Live TV, but now I look at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb189249.aspx I see it doesn't list a shortcut for Live TV. You could set this button to "mce" like the Windows button, but it will then open MCE when you're in XBMC. If you know what the keyboard shortcut for Live TV should be please let me know.
Later: according to http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Windows-Media-Center-keyboard-shortcuts ctrl-T is the shortcut for Live TV.
