This TAP turns the coloured buttons into ad skipping keys during playback of a recording or optionally timeshifting. The skip durations are customizable. It also optionally allows the use of the numeric keys to specify an absolute time to jump to, or to jump forward a specified number of minutes rather than a percentage.
|Red||Forward 3:00||During playback, playback of a current recording or timeshifting|
|Green||Forward 1:00||During playback, playback of a current recording or timeshifting, when progress bar is not shown|
|Yellow||Forward 0:30||During playback, playback of a current recording or timeshifting, When progress bar is not shown|
|Blue||Back 0:10||During playback, playback of a current recording or timeshifting, when progress bar is not shown|
|Teletext||Back 0:30||During playback, playback of a current recording or timeshifting|
|White||Undo last jump||When progress bar is not shown and no PIP is displayed|
|On the TF5800, if Remote Extender is running the following keys are also available:|
|Left||Back 0:30||During playback, playback of a current recording or timeshifting, when progress bar is not shown|
|Right||Forwards 0:30||During playback, playback of a current recording or timeshifting, when progress bar is not shown|
|Down||Back 1:00||During playback, playback of a current recording or timeshifting, when progress bar is not shown|
|Up||Forwards 1:00||During playback, playback of a current recording or timeshifting, when progress bar is not shown|
Just place QuickJump.tap in your ProgramFiles or Auto Start folder. If you have a Masterpiece model, install QuickJumpMasterpiece.tap instead or the options menu will not function correctly.
Pressing Exit will bring up the QuickJump configuration menu.
The following keys can be customised:
|TF5800||Left, Right, Up, Down, PIP, Text, Red, Green, Yellow, Blue, PIP Swap, White, Recall|
|Other models:||V-, V+, P+, P-, |<, >|, Red, Green, Yellow, Blue, Sat, White, Recall|
Note: if you installed QuickJump before installing RemoteExtender or the RemExt patch, the additional keys these extensions add will not be available until you reset the QuickJump options.
Each key can be set to one of the following functions
Use Left and Right to change the key function, << and >> to change in 60 second increments, and PIP and Text (|< and |> on non TF5800 models) to change in 1 second increments. Press OK to customize the situations that QuickJump will act on that key.
Jumping using the numeric keys can be set to
Binary jump can be used to home in on a specific point in a recording. Using forward and backward keys, each successive jump after the first opposing jump halves in size until a minimum size ('Final jump') is reached. Once a period of inactivity has passed, the 'Reset Timeout', the jump length is restored to the initial value. Dismissing the status message with Exit also resets the jump length.
A status message can be displayed during jumping to help you keep track of where you are in the recording. It will also pop up to inform you that playback is due to end soon. You can turn off the feature or use a key to show the message.
The Toppy misses the first few seconds of audio when resuming playback from pause. QuickJump can automatically jump back a few seconds so you don't miss any audio. You can customise the jump separately for resuming using play and pause.
QuickJump can launch either CutFile or CutAds when you press PIP Swap whilst the progress bar is showing. CutFile/Ads will ask if you want to trim the recording. It is recommended you use CutFile/Ads 1.2 or greater - earlier versions have no confirmation message. The TAP can be placed in any of the following locations:
The background displayed during playback of radio recording and MP3s can be enabled and disabled. Changes do not take effect until playback is restarted.
The length of time that the firmware's recording and playback roundels are shown for can be adjusted.
If you don't want QuickJump's menu to appear every time you press the Exit key, you can disable it. Once disabled, the menu is only accessible via TAP or TSR Commander. As a last resort deleting /Settings/QuickJump.dat will restore the default settings.
