    After reading up and planning to get one anyway we (with a bunch of "customer service" problems) got ours installed and we love it. Despite not expecting the 30 second skip to work I did the sps30s code and noted that it was still in slip mode. A couple of days later my wife noticed it working. This is a stock thr22 that did the update the day of the install. Hooked up to phone and internet. I'm happy but puzzled and will not be fiddling with it until we have a power blip. YMMV & happy Tivo-ing.

    Wow. First report I've seen that "SPS30S" works on the THR22. Be sure to post this result in the DirecTV/Tivo Forum at DBSTalk, too. Lots of folks are dying to have this feature again.

    I noticed it 4 days later. It was slipping for a few days and now the skip.

    Are you also using RF?

    Cover up the IR emitter on the remote and press a button. If the Tivo reacts it's using RF. If nothing happens you're using IR.

    I tried my second receiver and it hasn't changed. I messed with a lot of codes on my first unit when I first got it. I wonder if that did it and nothing I did yesterday enabled it. :confused:

    Wasn't able to get the skip to work.
    Perhaps is is the software version.
    billux software version is 11.2.3-01-1-627, mine is 11.2.3-01-3-627.
    Anyone have it working with software .....-3-627?

    Oh well.
    Sense you were able to get the skip to work, have you tried to turn off the ring of blue LED's by pressing the left and right buttons 3 times like on the HR10-250?
    Was able to turn off 3 of the LEDs, and I am left with a "smile"
    The way to turn off the 3 LEDs, just hold down one button, then press one of the other 3.
    Doing this, you can get 3 out of the 4 LEDs turned off.

    Am I somehow missing something? The 30 second 'Advance' is built into my THR22. Read the rear page of 'Viewer's Guide Manual' that shows what the Remote buttons do. Look where it says "Advance."

    The "SPSPS" (makes to Pause bar close immediately) and the "SPS9S" which puts up the 'Time of Day' clock (and the elapsed time in a recording) are the two codes that I miss the most.

    The advance button is there. What it actually does is what's being talked about.

    There are two choices, select-able in the menus. One option is to have it immediately jump to the next tic mark. The other option is a 30 second advance. But the 30 second advance it's what's referred to as the SLIP method. That means it's basically 30 seconds of fast forward.

    What people are looking for, and it appears some have been lucky to find, is what's referred to as the SKIP method. It's still 30 seconds, but instead of fast forwarding it immediately jumps those 30 seconds. Take a look at the linked video posted earlier to see it.

    Not working for me, I tried SPS30S several times.
    I have Version 018A id 11.2.3-01-3-627
    Would love to know what the trick is.

    By the way, I have a stupid question: how does one switch to RF mode?

    On the tivo peanut:

    1. press and hold Tivo & Stop keys until the light remains on
    2. enter the last 6 digits of the Receiver ID #, found on a sticker in the access card compartment

    If you press the right keys, and entered the right RID #, it should control it be RF.

    To switch the remote back to IR:

    1. press and hold Tivo & Pause keys until the light remains on
    2. press #1 key
