Recorded TV Programs - FF - Jump Back

I have searched this forum.
My problem is that I record a TV Program, start playback, get to an advert and want to fast forward over the adverts.
Mosaic has a mind of its own and will jump back to a (sometimes) random previous playback.
I am using a Windows 10 mosaic server (up-to-date), and using a Fire TV to playback on a Samsung TV (also Panasonic TV)

For me the playback is unusable.

I don't believe I am can be alone, especially when I have 4 Fire TV's which have the same issue.
I am using a Harmony remote, but also (and importantly) the original Fire TV remote is no different. My fire TV's are perhaps V1 and V2 (the one with the short hdmi cable)
I really welcome your suggestions.

Can you, please, make a short video of the issue?

I have a 10.3mb short video in mp4 format.
However, I cannot attach the file due to the file extension
I didn't find in the FAQ what the allowed formats are.

Just put it on any of the file sharing services - like dropbox or google drive - and paste the download link here.
Thanks.

Prior to making the video, I thought the problem had gone away, until I came across this recording.

Oberon. Did you come to any conclusion about this issue?

No news so far. It might be related to the bitrate of this recording. Can you, please, upload a problematic recording somewhere on the file sharing service and paste the link here?

Hmmm... I tried the TV Mosaic client on my Samsung Galaxy S8 and found the ffwd option to be pretty much useless too. I thought it was because that phone has these weird round edges and my fat fingers can't press the buttons very well.
