Thank you for your program, its the only success I've
ever had at getting FF/RW to work on my
Philips 751 DVD.  I think its fair to say that it does
produce working images so you can add it
to your list of compatible players.
One thing though.  I am encoding a DVD stream with
CCE, then using bbmpeg to spilt the file and
add SVCD scan offsets.   I then burn an image from
VCDimager, 0.6.2 or 0.7.7 with cdrdao.  
The FF/RW appears to work but not properly.   I can
FF/RW fine up to 5 mins (not realtime,
the clock runs slower on the my DVD player & Power DVD
than it should) then the player will
reset if I try to FF past 5 mins.   I can FF/RW ok in
Power DVD but not on my DVD player.
If I try to rewind from say, 29 mins in it jumps
straight back to 4:50.    The fact that FF/RW
works perfectly under five minutes leads me to believe
that the references on the disk at
29 mins are pointing to sector addresses in the 5 mins
range.   Is this a problem with bbmpeg
or vcdimager?
Any ideas on a workaround?   I can send you my SVCD
image with these characteristics
if you like 800Mb (mail or post?).   I would greatly
appreciate finding out what the problem is
here as it is annoying.    Jumping around by typing in
the time directly does work.
Thank you for any help, and I hope this may help iron
out any problems with the process,
