    Unfortunately still no go for me but I am trying via remote. I guess I will now have to install kmttg and try with that.

    It is still unclear to me how folks can hear the command sounds when the recording is playing. I do not hear any click sounds, so maybe there is something different about the TIVO I got.

    I will try kmttg and report back.

    Are you listening through your TV or through your sound system? After I turned the sounds back on (settings > audio > sound effects volume) I couldn't hear most of them because I was listening through my sound system. I had to listen through my analog headphones to hear them. Of course I still couldn't get the codes to work with my remote.

    Kmttg is a pretty easy install and lots of support here if help is needed.

    Misunderstood that earlier. I'm guessing you have your audio settings set to Dolby Digital, which doesn't allow Tivo sounds during playback. You could go into your audio settings on the Roamio and temporarily change your audio to PCM. You'll hear sounds during playback using that setting.

    I got all the codes to work using the Pro Glide remote.
    Make sure you are trying the codes while watching a program that has been recorded, while the program is playing. Do not pause the show then start the code, the show must be playing like your watching it and you try the code with the show in progress.

    I also run TiVo through my receiver, (Pioneer Elite VSX-60) sometimes I hear TiVo talking, sometimes not. It had no bearing on the codes working or not.

    I wasn't even able to get the 4FF code working on the Mini using kmttg. It kept getting Telnet connection failures. But after seeing a hint somewhere else I was finally able to get it working. The hint, watch a recorded program and hit the right arrow first. IOW, do it with the info banner showing.

    Ah yes, for the Mini you have to manually turn on "Enable iPad style communications with this TiVo" option in kmttg config-Tivos tab for the Mini, else it will use telnet to communicate with Mini instead of RPC, and the SPS macros won't work.

    What does the "Quick clear play bar" do?

    It makes the green progress bar disappear when pausing a recorded program. You can see see the progress bar by pressing play.

    What about CCEE codes? (Don't have a Roamio yet.)

    E. g., on Series 3, on the System Information Display, pressing Clear Clear Enter Enter 0 brings up a short menu with an option to view System Logs. System logs can be quite useful for diagnosing problems.

    That still works on Roamio. However I don't use it since it resets the remote code to 0 when you do that, and I have it set to non-zero setting (because I have a Mini in same room driving a Slingbox).

    Good to know, thanks for checking. CCEE 0 does not change the remote code on my Series 3s. Maybe that's a "bug" on the Roamio.

    It's never done that on any of my three base Roamios, either.

    I do have each set to the same RF and IR number for that specific unit & corresponding remote. Otherwise, if the remote should happen to fallback to IR (like due to a low battery), I'd be hitting them all with the IR from the remote IR at 0 (default), or if the TiVos were all set to 0 (default), they'd accept any IR from any remote.

    Most probably don't realize that you have to switch to IR mode with each remote and each TiVo in order to set the IR to something other than 0, on both the remote and the TiVo. Mine only show the IR assignment on System Information, not the RF assignment.

    Thank you soooo much for this!! The 30 sec skip is awesome! I didn't think much of it at first and I thought I'd just give it a try. It turns out I really like not having to watch it fast forward through everything. I think this is what "The Hopper" did with Dish Network and they call it commercial skipping. I understand why Tivo doesn't make this standard, but as long as they keep a backdoor to it I'll be happy. :)

    Just enter code again to reverse the setting. (Also for all except 30 they reset automatically upon reboot).

    Looks like 20.4.5c has removed the clock SPS function. Anyone else confirm this?

    Still works for me on both a Roamio and Premiere. I entered the code using Kmttg during playback of a record program.

    Edit:
    I just went to my Premiere and entered the SPS9S code on a live TV program without any problems.

    I had no problem entering all of these on my Roamio Plus with the standard remote today. Didn't have to try more than once for any of them. However, I quickly disabled all but the 30-second skip as I see no need for the others.
