Not a technical answer but......
Basically, the FW updated has made the "go to" function (accessed by the tiangle button), not work anymore when transcoding and/or remuxing files with PMS. I have had this issue with tsMuxer and MEncoder, no idea on AviSynth/MEncoder or AviSynth/FFmpeg.
Straight streaming seems to be unaffected.....AVI, MP4 and M2TS all seem to work with the "go to" function. (these being PS3 compatible formats)
I think, and hope, that a PMS update may fix this. I say this because if you watch your buffer after hitting "go to", it does the thing where the buffer starts to build then fades, starts to build and fades again. Basically, it won't create the buffer. Even pausing the video, then hitting "go to" doesn't allow the buffer to build. As it works with straight streaming, possibly it is MPlayer/MEncoder related.
I am interested to see if people who have replaced their MEncoder and MPlayer engines (because of recent MKV issues with audio) are having the same problem with "go to" . If not
, then possibly a new PMS update with these updated MPlayer/MEncoder engines may resolve THIS issue as well.
If you have replaced these files, please post your findings with the "go to " function.
