    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.

    I am running version 4.0 on a Dtvio. I did not see backdoors enabled in the system info screen.

    Just got a new HR10-250 and was wondering if anyone has tried entering any of these codes. I briefly tried the 30 second skip and didn't have any luck. Has anyone had any success with these?

    Even on units where that code has an effect, it makes that sound when you hit Record. You'd just ignore it and hit the ThumbsUp anyway.

    I thought it had become standard for almost all channels to put a logo in the corner of the screen. Are you sure it wasn't there before?

    RML51, I have the HR10-250 unit and the 30 second skip works just fine. Try it again, Select, Play, Select, 3, 0, Select and then you should hear 3 pings that tells you that you have activated the 30 second skip feature.

    Thanks Richierich, I got it to work. I had forgotten that you have to activate this feature while watching a recorded program.

    Hello All.

    I'm an newbie. I read thru this thread and got the
    general idea on how to enable a "pirate" mode, that
    is where TIVO can operate as a true DVR, that is to
    record anything coming into its AV inputs when I want.

    However, I can see this might be a tough forum to
    ask stupid newbie questions. So, I then cautiously proceed,
    offering all respect for the masters of this machine.
    I can see many of you have spend many hours uncovering
    the hidden gems of this machine.

    So, I really only want to just record from my AV inputs.
    How do I go about it? Which Backdoor codes do I need?

    I also have just got the same Series 2 TCD 540040 that you have and have not had any luck getting the S-P-S-3-0-S code for the 30 sec skip to work.

    Have you or anyone else with this stand alone series 2 had any luck ?
    I have tried it multiple times and it doesnt work. I get the multipe beeps at the end but no 30 sec skip.

    I will eventually get round to completely hacking this thing but for now thats the thing I miss the most (as I have multipe series 1s with a patched app running) and want to try and get it working asap.

    thanks in advance,

    It's be nice if TiVo just gave us a USB B port on TiVo's, to connect them to a PC and have it appear as a USB hard drive. That'd rock. I know it's never going to happen, but we can dream, can't we?

    I just got a 5400 and 30 skip still works fine. Try the instructions again.

    This list of codes and shortcuts is invaluable. Thanks. Has anyone put together a small, color-coded cheat sheet - perhaps available in PDF format? I'd love to have a little laminated card I could keep near the remote to do all these.

    Looked around and searched for mention of this but couldn't find anything.

    S-P-S-3-0-S code for the 30 sec skip

    It works fine on the Humax DRT800.

    Remember, after a power loss or TiVo reset, you'll need to reenter the codes.

    Hey folks, newbie TiVo owner here, hopeing to get some help.

    I've been able to initiate the 30 second skip code on my DirecTiVo RCA (version 3.1.1e)

    I've tried the Enable Back Door Codes with the following:
    --Go into "Pick Programs to Record" and actually type in the letters "B D 2 5"
    and also tried "B M U S 1"
    but got no response that I could tell and foud no visable statement in setup saying it confimred. Is there a different code to use?

    The Following codes I have been able to initiate on my DirecTiVo 3.1 (Pulled from several different pages, listed so others who buy one will know they work):
    30 second skip
    --Select, Play, Select, 3, 0, Select.(Play?)
    --Before entering the code have something playing back that you have recorded.
    Toggle timer and time in bottom right corner:
    -- S-P-S-9-S (Select, Play, Select, 9, Select)
    Toggle Status Information in the bottom right corner.
    -- S-P-S-InstantReplay-S
    Toggles how fast the Play Bar disappears.
    -- S-P-S-Pause-S

    Clear-Enter-Clear Codes (CEC-Zero more specifically) doesn't seem to work, along with all the other codes I've seen (above excepted.)

    Does anyone know what format the Tivo uses and what quality it's saving the files at? (IE mpeg 2, mpeg4; DVD Quality, Long DVD, etc?)

    Another thing; My DirecTiVo has two USB ports in it... is there any purpose to these, and is there any use for it? Also I've heard someone say they're using the usb port so the TiVo can use the internet connection to get the information rather then having to use a phone line. Is there a connection cord or something that I can connect two USB plugs together?

    All those C-E-C and other codes that don't work, require the "backdoor" mode to be enabled. To my knowlege, the method for toggling this mode with the remote on the latest iteration Tivo software hasn't been uncovered. It's really too bad, because there are some VERY handy codes and modes available.

    I have an directv R-10 which is running Tivo v6. It seems this code list is quite a few versions old. Is there a newer list for my version(nothing at dbsforums.com)., or does anybody know the backdoor codes.

    Just been wandering around, wondering if anyone has rediscovered a code for showing onscreen what HD resolution, etc., is being viewed.

    Don't know if he was yanking my chain or not; but, in a recent conversation with a D* tech [somewhat up the food chain], I grumped about the removal of the appropriate command -- and he suggested that "maybe" they just moved it.

    I tried using the 2 space 0 space tcd then press thumbs up code. I got the bong sound and didn't see anything different. Does this unit allow backdoors to be enabled or am I maybe using the wrong code? I also saw the 2.5.2 that was termed DirecTiVo, but that one didn't seem to work either. I can however seem to use the SLOW sort feature from the now playing list and the 30 second jump feature. Any ideas on how to enable backdoors on this unit. It is a RCA DVR 40 with software version 3.1.1e-01-2-321.

    Also, I noticed 6 codes that were not documented elsewhere, but from what I can see they seem to have no effect I can find.

    They are:

    I know these are codes because after entering them, I get the 3 ding confirmation.

    Maybe one of you might be able to figure out if these add or change any features.
