    The new software update for the THR-22 has a nice surprise

    The 30-second SKIP option now works: S-P-S-3-0-S.

    And that is the only SPS backdoor code reinstated.

    For those interested, the shortcuts at TiVo Central are still there too.

    Still not working for me. Anything special I should know like a reboot or something? I tried multiple times.

    ETA: OK, odd indeed. I tried everything, including a reboot. Nothing worked. Sat down for dinner and tried it on my wife's THR22. Worked the first time I tried it. Finished dinner and went back to my THR22 and all of a sudden it was working. Makes no sense, but I'm happy.

    Hi Everyone,
    I've had my THR22 for over a year now and I've always had the 30 second skip feature. Does this one skip through w/o you seeing the commercial, because with mine you see the commercial. I tried using the S-P-S-3-0-S code and it didn't seem to change my 30 second skip feature. Also, how can I check to see if I got the software update ? Thanks in advance.

    Yes, this is SKIP. What you currently have is SLIP, where you still see the commercials. You should try it the way I did it. Reboot and apply the code one time. Then wait. I waited 30 minutes, but I don't know if it really takes that long.

    To find out if you got the update just go to settings, and I think it's system info.

    Restart. Reset is bad, you'll lose everything.

    The problem with retrying is that it's a toggle. So the 2nd time you do it, you turn it off. It doesn't take long to lose track of whether it's on or off. That's why I did the restart in the first place, to have a fresh starting point.

    Thanks again, Midas !! I'll enter the code once and be patient. Hopefully it'll eventually work. Cheers !!

    Glad it worked out. It was frustrating for me too.
