DVR skips ahead, useless

When watching recorded programs, our dvr skips ahead by 10-15 min when we FF through commercials. When we try to rewind back, same program. It makes it almost impossible to watch recorded television.  What can we do to fix our dvr?

Update to X1. The old legacy boxes do not do a good job handling the MPEG4 compression Comcast now uses for HD channels. It will only get worse over time.

and we are not on HD. Is this still the necessary solution?
