    That worked....though I find the "information" a bit useless unless you're a real geek. And 4X FF is pretty useless since all you have to do is press FF 3X then play.

    What I really like about the clock display is the "time-elapsed" addition to the left of the clock during playback of a recording.

    I don't know. That's one reason I didn't chime in on your other thread. Does ttg work or whatever you want to call TiVo's app.

    No, not even on the THR22, which is the DirecTV Tivo. The Andriod Tivo app doesn't even work on it.

    Oh, the code restores the "instant skip". This is awesome! Thanks!

    I can't get the 4FF to work on the Mini. Anybody had any luck with that?

    Will be receiving and setting up my Roamio Plus today. Is there a special screen to enter the 30-sec skip at, or can I do it anywhere?

    Easiest way to enter all of these is while playing back an existing recording (not live TV). The 1st one (SPSPS) cannot be reliably entered using TiVo remote and easiest entered using kmttg remote macro for it.

    Never had a problem entering that code with the TiVo remote or my Harmony One.

    Before 20.3 software update one had to find a pause Ad or use Showcase video to enter it with normal remote. On Roamio it now seems to works normally, but for a Mini it still does not. Only way I get it to work on Mini is via kmttg Remote macro.

    Unfortunately the codes are not working for me. I have a new Roamio and I am using the remote that came with it.

    I have a recording of SNL that I brought over from my old TIVO HD. I am particularly interested in the 30 second skip, so I started that recording. Then I pressed the Select key, then the play key, then the select key, then the 3 key, then the 0 key then finally the select key again.

    But nothing happens. The -> key still goes forward the same way it was doing before.

    Could someone let me know what I am doing wrong as I am sure I must have missed a step? I see from other messages that I need to be watching a recording while doing this. So does the recording need to be done on this TIVO or could it be a recording it brought over from another TIVO HD. Any help would be appreciated.

    New Roamio here too. I'm having trouble too. I think it can be on any recording.

    I tried using both the Roamio remote and KMTTG. With KMTTG I was able to get the information code to work but that's it. I didn't try and get the information code to work using the remote. I'll try that later.

    I've entered these codes successfully before on my TiVoHD and series 1 so I know I can do it.

    If you have TiVo sounds turned off it helps to temporarily enable them so you can listen for the confirmation that happens when codes take. If using kmttg, note that you should be using the "SPS backdoor" button along with the pulldown giving you the selection of codes to execute.

    So with kmttg, select the code from the drop down and then click on the SPS backdoor button? That's what I did.

    So this does not make any sense because even if I have the sounds turned on, because I am playing the recording, the only sound we hear is the recording playback. So not sure what you are saying. Should I do this on Tivo Menu screen? Then I can hear the sounds. I am sure I am missing something very obvious here because this has worked for so many folks, so it should work for me as well.

    If the code is successfully recognized by the software, you will hear a sound at the end of the sequence (I think the "thumbs up" sound). If you attempt to enter the code during a recording but don't hear anything at the end, the sequence was not properly recognized by the Tivo and you should try again.

    Entering the codes can be a bit tricky. Do your best to press the buttons at a consistent pace between pushes.

    That's right, and do it while playing back an existing recording on the TiVo. For me it works 1st time, but perhaps you need to try a few times to get it to work.
