Hello, I'm pretty new to the whole Tivo universe, and truth be told, I sort of feel like I've been missing out now. I mean.. I've had the system for about 60 days now, and was hooked 10 minutes into actually using it. So now I've found this message board. I've been quietly lurking the past few days, trying to figure out some of the terminology, lengo, etc... I picked up on some of them, but I still need help with a few others. Anyway, I have 2 questions. If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it. First... what is "backdoor mode"? My guess is that it's a macro that you need to enable, in order to enter any of the "secret codes". But that's just a guess. 2nd.. is there a way that when I'm recording a TV show, that I can either pause during commercials (yes, to not record them) or a way that I can "fast forward" through the commercials, without having to actually hit the fast forward buttons? Like a one shot macro or something? Thanks in advance.
