  1. I have noticed the Fire TV app backs up too far when I hit the rewind button. It used to back up around 10 seconds but for several months I have noticed it backs up more like 20 seconds. Is there any way to revert it to a 10 second jump or imbed an option to customize it in the app?


    1. Hi Zach – By default, the app is supposed to jump 12 seconds with each click. I will check w/ our video engineers to find out if there have been any changes. Thanks for bringing this up! – Rob
