Does anyone know the Trickmode settings for Window7 Windows Media Center?



I’m trying to find the Trickmode registry settings for Window7 Windows Media Center, can anyone help?






Hello Christi,


Here are the Ttickmode settings and the locations of the registry keys to allow for custom trickmode settings.


Registry key to modify Seekbar settings


Camping = "Hold down the trickmode key on the remote" which sends key repeats.


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Media Center\Settings\SeekBar]

"CampingFastSkipBackMs"=dword:000493e0      ; 300,000 ms = 5 minutes

"CampingFastSkipForwardMs"=dword:000493e0   ; 300,000 ms = 5 minutes

"CampingFastSkipTickMs"=dword:000001f4      ;     500 ms = 0.5 sec

"CampingSkipBackMs"=dword:00007530          ;  30,000 ms = 30 sec

"CampingSkipForwardMs"=dword:00007530       ;  30,000 ms = 30 sec

"CampingSettleDelayMs"=dword:00001388       ;   5,000 ms =  5 sec

"CampingKeyRepeats"=dword:00000007          ; 7 repeats

"ThumbnailDisable"=dword:00000001           ; disables thumbnails if set to true (1)



Reducing the number of key repeats will cause the seekbar to enter camping mode with less latency

when you mash-down on the Skip/Replay buttons

(but will also increase the likelihood of accidentally entering camping mode when

you’ve once pressed-and-released the Skip/Replay buttons just once without holding it down).


Trick Mode Registry keys


·         The default first fastforward speed is set to a speed of 1.4x

Note: There will be compressed and pitch-corrected audio whenever the first fastforward speed is set to 1.4.

·         The second fastforward default is 10.

·         And the third fastforward default is 100.


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Media Center\Settings\VideoConstants\FastForwardRates]





·         The rewind speeds defaults are -3, -10, -100.


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Media Center\Settings\VideoConstants\FastReverseRates]





·         Lastly, the slow-motion speed default is 0.5:


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Media Center\Settings\VideoConstants\SlowForwardRates]



And here are the locations of all the other trickmode registry settings:


HKCU: SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Media Center
