Macro Programming for FF and Rewind in Plex App

I use an Nvidia Shield to stream Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Plex. Programming URC remotes to operate these apps is a bit of a nuisance because each app has a different approach for the FF and Rewind buttons. I created macros that work fine for these buttons in the Netflix and Amazon apps but I am stumped on the Plex app.

Here's the situation: To fast forward or rewind in the Plex app, the user has to first push the down button, then the up button, and then you press and hold the right button (to fast forward) or the left button (to rewind). I can create a macro that presses the down button, then the up button, and then the right button, which will advance the video a tiny bit, but what I need to happen is for the right button to repeat as long as the button is held down.

I would be grateful for any help if someone has an idea how to go about this.

Thanks in advance and Happy New Year.
