I have a Logitech Harmony remote that I've used with my ATV 2 and 3 since I've had them. Never had any problems. Just noticed today though that when I hit chapter forward on movies streamed from my iMac, that its backing up rather than going forward. Could this be a bug in the recent update? Has anyone else had this happen?

same here with my logitech harmony.
tried re-programming the harmony but nothing seems to restore the chapter forward function (closest i could get was skip to very end).

I saw on another forum and it works
On the harmony press the down arrow them either the left or right arrow
That will advance the chapters forward or back
Then press play or down arrow again
Not as good as it was before the 5.1 update but it does bring the functionality back

the functionality of pressing down and then skipping has always been there.
it's part of the appletv functionality and not specific to the harmony remote.

what we are talking about is the functionality of the physical "skip forward" button on the remote that now seems to put playback into reverse. the "skip back" button still works as normal.

Yes I know what you are talking about
I was just pointing out you could do it on the harmony remote that way also
Until it gets fixed (if ever)

Just started having this problem myself. Holy crap is this annoying. Does Apple bother to test these updates before crapping them out?
