    just rebooted again-I was wrong-sps codes work
    however, they work more often with another keypress before [play works, clear works...]

    Hi,

    I just picked up my Toshiba SD-H400 a week ago. I just tried to get the 30 second skip to work, using Vin's technique of either a Play or Clear before the code and got no love. After entering the code I do get three bings but the 30 second skip doesn't work.

    Any additional suggestions would be great. Also, when you say rebooted do you mean just restart the media server or is there another way to reboot.

    Thanks

    As I said, back-to-back entering of S-P-S codes don't always work. I find a Clear between them works. Possibly any other button may also work. 5 may even work.

    My guess is that the S that ended one trips up the automata that's looking for S-P-S. It sees S-S, thinks "that's not a recognized code prefix; starting over", P ("nothing special"), S ("could be an SPS...") 3 ("S-3 isn't a code, starting over"), 0, S ("could be an SPS..."), S ("SS is not a recognized code prefix; starting over"), etc.

    So separate your consecutive SPS codes with something, anything, that isn't part of an SPS code.

    How do you program the arrow button under the fast forward button to go forward only 30 seconds. When I hit it, it goes to the end of the recording. I know it can be done as I did it once, but can't remember how and all of a sudden, it doesn't work. I have tried to find this in the forum but couldn't. If anyone knows, please contact me. Thanks.....dj:)

    Play any recording and press:

    Select, Play, select, 3, 0, select

    You'll hear 3 bells, and that's it.

    No problem, just glad I could help. You might want to write this down and tape it to the bottom of your recorder or something... anytime the TiVo is rebooted (either manually, or power off/on), this feature will be cleared and you'll have to enter it again.

    Great idea. I also called DirecTV and told them. Felt maybe they could use the information as well.

    Do you know why I keep getting the message that indicates it is looking at the satellite to update the system? I have had this for at least 2 weeks. It isn't listed under messages, but shows up on one of the screens.
    I love TiVo. Think it is even better than "sliced bread". Thanks again...dj

    I'm assuming that it's checking for software updates... but I can't say for sure. I don't have a subscription, so the only reason my box connects to my network is to check/set the clock. It also may have something to do with DirectTV, but again, as I don't have this service, don't quote me on it. :)

    Anyone else reading this forum have any hints/suggestions/guesses??

    It's a known issue that's affecting all DirecTiVo units:
    http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=151320&perpage=40&pagenumber=1

    If you have a newer "Series 2" unit (silver) then an update will come soon that should fix it. If you have an older "Series 1" unit (black) then hopefully an update will come out one day.

    Hi. I've got a new tivo 4.0, and can't seem to get the speed 1 to change. i go tot he tivo "search by title" screen (to the part where you could enter the title of a film/show), and i hit enter enter 1 and the number one pops up on the search title screen, red record light does NOT go on), then i enter a speed, and it enters on the title screen too, and then i hit enter enter 1 again, and another 1 goes on the title screen. and no change to the speed. any clue what i'm doing wrong?
    thanks!

    You need backdoors enabled for the EE shortcuts to work, I believe. Read closer to confirm.

    Only way to enable backdoors on new Series 2s is to monte them (replace the BIOS via flash) AND replace the encrypted password in the binary with a known one, say from 3.0 or whatever.

    can anyone confirm whether you need to have backdoor activated to make the enter-enter 1 command work? i can't find this anywhere...
    thanks,

    I just read the first post more clearly. It doesn't specifically say/confirm this, but it is written as if the backdoors-enabled state is required for ALL of the backdoors except those noted otherwise.

    Anyway, I know I've done this on my S1 (with backdoors enabled) and so I think that is your problem.

    have used the 30 second jump code successfully , however the code programming disappears every time i turn the unit off. is there away to make the code 'stick '?

    i have a DirecTivo unit.

    thanks.

    You don't turn a TiVo off. It is designed to be connected to the power 24/7.

    To actually answer your question, yes the code needs to be entered after any reboot.

    I thought I read that there was a code to change the pause live tv feature increase the buffer from 30 min to 120 minutes, but I can't find the code (I tried searching). Can anyone help me?

    There is no code for changing the live buffer.

    There is not a "code", but there is a software mod you can make if you are so inclined. Do a Google search on "bufferhack".
