    Does someone know how to jump between the (usually 15-minute) tick marks on the TiVo status bar? I know that I can jump from the very end to the very beginning (and vice versa) using the Advance button (">|") but I'm hoping there's a way to move back/fwd between tick marks without the Forward (">>") or Back ("<<") buttons. I've looked thru the manual and the online TiVo Community Forum (TiVoCommunity.com) but can't find an answer.

    And if you want to go to the previous tick mark hit rewind then the the advance button (an odd combo, but there it is).

    Somehow, someone has wires crossed. I tried both responses -- Fwd followed by Advance OR Rewind followed by Advance -- but in both cases Advance took me to the very beginning or the very end of the Status Bar. Did I misunderstand or am I missing something?

    As far as I know that should work (but only in recordings. Live TV doesn't do 'skip to tick').

    Yup, you're correct. It works as described in recorded shows but not on live TV that's being recorded. Thanx for straightening me out. o/o
