    I think you'll find the good ole 30SS is head-and-shoulders better than the alleged 30SS that TiVo programs into its remote...

    It isn't programmed into the remote. S-P-S-3-0-S changes nothing on the remote, it is the TiVo that is being changed in how it processes the "Skip" remote code.

    Ok, I'm sure we're all Big Bang Theory fans...i.e., technical geeks.

    I did reactivate the 30 second skip and "played" with it last night. Instead of going directly back to the recording after each skip, there is a fast forward for several seconds. I don't recall this being the case the last time I tried it - faulty memory on my part, a new "feature", or something wrong on my end?

    Sounds like you reactivated the default behavior of the ADVANCE button which is, as you noted, a 30-sec fast-forward. That was exactly my question above and the answer provided to me results in an "instant" FF of 30 sec.

    From live TV I'm pressing: S-S-P-S-30-S

    I am indeed getting what appears to be 30 second scan. Sorry guys, did I misread the instructions above?

    Mission...
    The sequence is: Select-Play-Select-3-0-Select and you should enter it while playing back a recording, not during live TV.

    Actually, I redid the S-S-P-S-30-S-P from live tv again and it seems to be working now. Thanks again.

    BTW - I never use the replay button. When I overshoot the start of the recording I simply use the Rewind button. Even now with the 30 second skip enabled I think it's easier and more accurate, don't you?

    I think some of this has to do with habit.

    When the 30 sec scan option came out I didn't like it but decided to give it a try, now I like it better than the 30 sec skip option. In fact I know tend to move shows from my Series 3 units to my Premiere because of the 30 sec scan.

    In any event I am glad we have choices: various fast forward speeds, 30 sec skip, 30 sec scan, various rewind speeds, and 10 sec skip back are all good.

    No, because I overshoot the other direction. :p
