Back at my machine and hmmm still doesn’t work as expected. If while focus on the timeline I begin to type timecode using the keypad, the keypad appears (as expected) and accepts my number . However it adds a # before the frame number. I’m working in 25FPS and would expect to see a : (colon ... snigger)
Pressing the TC button does nothing. If I click the timecode box and then enter my code it works as expected. I was trying to remove the additional click required to jump to a specific point in the timeline.

The # tells me that you are not working at 25 fps. if you’re using the Smoke 2013 keyboard shortcuts, hold down the / and click on the sequence clip in the media library. The pop-up window will tell you the metadata of the sequence including the frame rate.
You say that you just start typing in a number and the calculator appears?
Could you just try to click on the timecode indicator first to bring up the calculator and see if you can switch between timecode and frame number.
I am trying work out if there is a difference in behaviour based on how you get to the calculator.
that sounds (a bit) better ,-)
looks like assigning those would be the fastest way to get you where you wanted to be ...
the onl way to make it even faster would be to interprete Enter Numeric > Hit Return as goto TC/frame
the issue on mac with simple differentiation seems to be the lack of the numLock key
linux (was) nuLock on = Frames, off=TC - very convenient ...
Figured it out. It seems my project cfg is set to 50fps! Even though the sequence is 25p if you hit the TC calc from just typing on the keypad, it asumes the project settings and not the sequence. Bug me thinks.
