I've never liked/used 30 sec skip. Have always preferred multi-speed, fast fwd scan.
Nope, just different styles depending on who has the remote!
I'm a new premier user. 30 sec skip is not as responsive as it was on S3 unfortunately. From what I hear it used to be even worse. Even still, 30 skip is the only way to go for me since it's often the fastest way to get through commercials.
I don't use a Premiere, but from the descriptions I've read I think I would be able to stand the 30 second scan.
The main objective is to get through commercials AFAP, but 30 second skip has the disadvantage of not being able to see what your skipping. That often results in overshoots which requires many presses of the rewind button.
I think 30 second skip has the advantage *IF* you figure out the cadence a show uses for its commercial breaks.
30 sec skip works fastest in combination with 8 sec back button for fast forwarding most short commercials. For live tennis which is always 90 sec commercials 3 quick skip button works great
Thanks for the tips in this thread. Count me as another one who prefers the 30 second skip to the scan. I was having trouble enabling it on my new Premiere but now I see there are a few new steps. I'll give it a try after the cable guy shows up to fix the standard cable card activation issues. He's already late and hasn't called.
We have his and hers Tivos.
I have never used the 30-second anything.
/off to try it...
Scan is way too slow for me, and I wish skip worked as fast as it does on the S3s.
I switched to SD menus and the old method to engage the 30 second skip worked. Thanks again for the tip.
I called to see where the cable guy was and he isn't coming. They are having a "widespread issue" and all appointments were cancelled for today. Of course they don't bother to inform all the people waiting for their appointments! They won't let me reschedule now because they don't know when the issue will be fixed.
It's enough to make you give up cable TV entirely.
