How difficult is that? I'll save my frustration for things I can't control at all.

I also have the exact same problem. The fast forward/rewind function will not work correctly on ANY live or recorded program on NBC. I was watching a program on discovery and missed part of it. I haven't tried the 30-second skip, but how is that going to fix the problem of the rewind function not working/
I pressed rewind on the remote, and while the screen showed the program was rewinding, nothing was happening. Once I switched to another channel and then back to discovery, the rewind function worked again.
My understanding is that this is a known issue, but there doesn't seem to be any urgency to fix it. When I go to the comcast chat and discuss this is issue, I get the standard "unplug the box, wait two minutes, and plug it back in" to see if that fixes the problem. If it doesn't, then I either need a new remote, new box, or a technician has to be dispatched.

When I contacted Comcast via chat about this, that is exactly what they said to do. Quickly press the rewind button twice and you will have control over the rewind function -- another workaround.
I recently contacted Comcast about this via e-mail because I experienced an issue where it stopped working completely. I e-mailed them back and forth for a period of three days, and unfortunately, I have to say that I did not accomplish anything.
I got generally the same response from each tech -- reset the box, bring the box in to the nearest office for a replacement, contact us via chat to schedule a technician visit.
