Thanks again, I tried deleting UserPrefs and letting Maya create a new version, setting the pref for RealTime playback and then saving the prefs and restarting Maya but no luck, it's still not reading it correctly.

I'll dig around in UserSetup though and see if I can find something there.

On a related note - is it possible to set preferences like that without using the Prefs UI? I could use the OptionVar command in MEL to set that preference from a shelf button or script node etc rather than having to go to the prefs window every time.

I tried this and it didn't seem to have any effect - optionVar -fv "timeSliderPlaySpeed" 1; When I query the value though I do see it being changed but it seems not to change the playback speed in the scene?

Strange that it's not being saved.
Can't say I've ever notice it resetting here.

If you want a self button you could use the playbackOptions command:

playbackOptions -e -playbackSpeed 1;

That wouldn't save it out to your prefs of course, but should set it for the session.

Great thanks, that code gave me an error (too many arguments) but I was able to figure it out from it - this does the trick :

playbackOptions -ps 1;

Oops, I'd missed off the - before playbackSpeed

Glad the trick has been done.

Thanks! Still curious as to why Maya 2014 is doing this but I can live with it
