    I noticed recently that the 30 second advance button isn't working anymore on my XL4. If I press it, it displays the time bar on the screen but nothing happens. If I am fast forwarding or rewinding, hitting the button will still skip to the next time segment.

    What button are you pressing? is it ->| alone?

    Pressing ->| following a << or >> will get to the next tick as usual on the time bar.

    If you had pressed play while on a recording or live TV, it just shows your time bar position.

    You can switch between 30 sec skip and 30 sec scan by doing SELECT-PLAY-SELECT-3-0-SELECT. I think there is also a setting in the menu for disabling/enabling the 30 sec scan so when you press ->| it jumps to the end instead.
