ShuttlePro 2

Hi,
I just went to Macworld a week or so ago. I saw and picked up the Shuttle Xpress. I just ordered the ShuttlePro 2. I remember the jog dial from the 80's VCRs that had this type of remote control unit. Scanning through the time line is very easy to view my video in slow-mo, etc.
I have a question about time remapping in Premiere Pro CS5. It seems like it would be really nice and a great great feature if I could say something like the following....
Start record of a macro, run the jog dial across the timeline clip at the speed I want it to play back with the ability to pause where I want, go back if I choose and then say stop recording. Is there anyway to do this or something similar in PP CS5? This type of feature would really speed up editing and make things a breeze to use. Right now it seem that I basically have to cut and past sort of way to edit the clip in time remapping.

Shuttle Pro 2

I just got the Shuttle Pro v2. I think it is a great product. The added buttons are a must have. I got mine for $68usd from Provantage. It took less than a day to receive very quick service. I only paid for regular ground shipping.
I only wish I could combine the Time Remapping feature with the shuttle dials. This feature would be sweet.

The bad side to the shuttle pro is that every time I go to a computer that is not mine I can't remember my shortcuts because I've mapped the functions to shuttle pro's buttons hehehe :)

shuttle pro

You might want to Carry a small sheet with you until you have memorized the short cuts. I don't have that problem since I only use one pc. But using the Shuttle I really now hate the way the time remapping works. It now is so hard to use and Time consuming seeing how easy it could be. I hate having to do it the old way. But it seems like I have no other option. What I like to do in editing my videos is to take a clip and scan through it starting at a slow speed then freeze frame for a few seconds where I explain the tennis shot and then go back to fast slow-mo for the rest of the clip maybe even reversing the direction in parts etc. This is so easy using the Shuttle dials but there seem to be no way to record this action. Unless there is a third party plugin or app that would allow me to do this?
