    Silabs Radio: Some trouble with "SEEKMODE" CMD...and others

    In my skin, I have a button "Seek Mode" with cmd "SEEKMODE", in order to toggle Silabs radio tuning between Presets and frequencies seek.
    As I read from documentation:

    * "SEEKMODE" - Toggles Seek-Mode see "NEXT", "PREV", "FREQ+", "FREQ-")

    I have 2 buttons on the skin that I want to use use for :

    Radio : NEXT or PREVIOUS PRESET or Seek frequencies UP or DOWN
    Video : NEXT or PREVIOUS Video file or search video UP or DOWN
    MP3 : NEXT or PREVIOUS MP3 file or search audio UP or DOWN

    In order to achieve this, I have the 2 buttons with associated CMD's:

    For down\previous: "RRPREV"
    For up\next: "RRNEXT"

    It works well for MP3. For Video , I can only move between video files but I cannot FFWD or RWD inside the same video file.

    For Radio, even if SEEKMODE in ON or OFF, I can only move between Presets.
    From the RR docs, I read:

    "NEXT"- if Seek-Mode On, "SEEKUP", else same as "FINEUP", In Preset-Mode, switch presets UP instead of seeking the radio.
    "PREV"- if Seek-Mode On, "SEEKDOWN", else same as "FINEDOWN", In Preset Mode, switch presets DOWN instead of seeking the radio.

    I have used RRNEXT and RRPREV, because they are similar to NEXT and PREV CMD's, but should work on any screen:

    "RRNEXT" - Simulates the "NEXT" button but works the same on any screen (including Launch/Video screens)
    "RRPREV" - Simulates the "PREV" button but works the same on any screen (including Launch/Video screens)

    How I can solve the problems for Radio and Video ?

    Thanks.

    PS: Soon, after these few issues are solved, I will share my new skin.

    For Radio, there's something called PRESET mode -- if that is ON, then the command will switch presets, if that is OFF, then it checks the SEEKMODE -- if that is ON, it will SEEK, otherwise it will fine tune.

    For Video, it should switch files for simple presses or fast forward/rewind on press and hold -- if that is not working, there may be a bug -- please specify the video player you're using and TRY a different video player with the same videos to see if the problem happens in the same way.

    I modified the Radio skin and I will test it later. For Video, I am using MPC, I will test with other players and report here. Thanks for now.

    I have just fixed an issue with RRPREV not switching to the previous file in the video player, but RRNEXT should work as it should. Also fixed the behavior of RRPREV/RRNEXT on video player screens using a video playlist.
