When using the remote, is there any way to jump up or down when browising music.

For example, let's say you are at Browse Music > Browse Artists and
the first artisit is 2Pac, is there any key on the remote that would
jump up or down the list say 30 - 40 artists or some other number?
this way you could go from 2Pac to the Beatles fairly quickly.....

If the remote is not able to do this, might it be in the future? Has
this come up before?

Thx.

The only way to speed up scrolling I know of is pressing number 2 button
twice to jump to the first artist who's name starts with "B".

That works, thanks. I noticed that if you press 2 once you get a,
twice b and three times c, etc., for the other numbers.

this tip is sort of in the remote section of help, but before I posted
I looked at that and the impression I had was the number keys were for
searching, not browsing through Artists, Albums, etc. Maybe this
could be made explicit in help.
