Fast-forward and rewind not working

I have had to completely reinstall my PC (after multiple hardware failure) with XP MCE plus SP2.
I can play all my old TV recordings, but ffwd and rwd don't work, neither the on-screen buttons or the remote control buttons. They do activate the time-line, so the message is getting through, but not being acted upon. Skip forwards and back do work though.
Can anyone tell me where to look?

I remembered that I got a PowerDVD disk with the machine, so I installed that, and now FF and Rew work, but when I go back to play, the video is frozen but the audio is going, then the video might start, but out of step with the audio. So it must be codec related?
Using the "Windows XP Video Decoder Checkup Utility", I have tried swapping between "Cyberlink video/SP Decoder (PDVD10)" and "Cyberlink video/SP Decoder (PDVD10 UPnP)" which the utility says are compatible with MCE, but the problem is still the same.

Tried an older version of PowerDVD, version 7 I think, and it is now working properly.

The PDVD version was 6, the decoder was clvsd.ax version 6.0.0.1402.
