    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.

    First - It's a mode which enables certain features intended for testing by TiVo engineering. Some of the codes require backdoor mode, some don't.

    Second - while you're recording, you can't advance into the future. But if you are watching the show "behind live", so there is recorded buffer ahead of you, you can use the 30-second-skip code to enable that feature. There is no way to "pause recording".

    Do you think its a matter of time for 4.01 users to have working bd codes? I am not comfortable opening up the unit. Thanks

    Excuse my stupitity but what are "B" and "D"

    I tried back, and down and nothing happens.
    Thanx

    EDIT
    While I am here, is there a way to sort recorded programs alphabeticaly, rather then by time?

    Thanks Again

    Go into "Pick Programs to Record" and actually type in the letters "B" and "D"

    Go to your Now Playing List and hit these buttons on the remote, 1 after the other:

    low
    [0]
    [R] ecord
    [T] humbs up


    A little banner will appear at the bottom, you can the hit "Info" and sort the list in any one of 3 ways... by name, by date, or by expiration. I too prefer by name.

    There is a menu option to turn off the sounds. Check under your setup menu, it should be there. You can make then Loud, Med, Soft or Off.

    Sorry Davy, you're out of luck on this one. SORT doesn't work in 2.5. It came out with version 3.0.

    Wondering if anyone knows how to set TIVO to automatically replay a show after it's completed? I have a 2 year old that loves to sleep to her favorite shows but wakes up when the show is over. This feature would help us sleep!!! haha, any help would be great.

    FYI:

    Slow-Zero-Rec-ThumbUp sorting in Now Playing works without backdoors enabled on an unsubbed 3.0 SA HDR212.

    I have software version 3.1.1. How do you enable the backdoor, and how do you enter these codes? Do you always enter these codes in the search by title screen? That is the only area where I see alphanumeric digits. When are spaces used in these codes?

    Thanks,

    Screett

    Nevermind. I guess the backdoor isn't available on 3.1.1 yet? How do I enter the 30-second skip? I tried select, play, select, 3,0, select and I do get the confimation beeps, but it doesn't skip ahead 30 seconds. Instead, it now skips about 1 second ahead. How do I enter this in 3.1.1?

    Thanks,

    Screett

    Aguilar,...
    You should enable the 30 second skip while you are watching a recorded show. Go to your now playing list, pick a recorded show, play it and then enter the codes. People have had problems with the skip feature when they enabled it on live TV.

    I did it while watching a recording. I get the confirmation beeps, but it only skips ahead one second.

    Is there a way to check to see if backdoors in enabled. I can do the 0 thumbs down in now playing to get the HMO info screen, but I cannot access the disk usage screen, using 0 thumbs up in the pick programs to record screen

    What version are you running?

    I have 3.0 on a series 1 and I know that backdoors are enabled because when I go to Messages & Setup -> System Information, the top line is "Backdoors: ENABLED!"

    FWIW, I think the 0-Thumbs Up code only works for 4.0.
