What is "FFWD4"?
A 4th press of Fast Forward returns you to Play rather than doing nothing
What does the clock code do?
Adds an on screen clock.
Real-time clock plus recording playback time (similar to the time displays on the old VCR's except that there's no blinking 12:00 )
I've gotten so used to having this information on my display that I feel lost without it. And it's an immediate indication that my TiVo has rebooted when the counters are not there in the upper left-hand corner.
Your other left.
Excellent! I like that feature...
I've looked for special or hidden TiVo features here and TiVo web site and did not find any info.
Got a link from where you found this info on the FF?
If I remember correctly, it used to be standard and was removed in an update. After people complained, they added it back in the next update, but only through the backdoor code. Margaret from TiVo posted the code here.
Doh! That's right (in both senses)!
Here's the thread. Note that, although there are plenty of recent posts, it's an old thread and some of the original info may not be current. I assume that you'll be particularly interested in the OP's para 2. (Select-Play-Select Codes) as well as para 10. (Shortcuts).
Thanks; duly bookmarked!
I've been doing a lot of thinking ( dangerous I know lol ) and I believe it would be nice if TiVo included more detailed system info of their DVR's, like the hard drive temps for both the internal and external hard drives. I know the My Book AV expander supports it via eSATA when connected to Motorola DVR's and PC's, so why not with TiVo?
Followed by usefulness, to TiVo.
Your argument would mean that half the information currently on the System Information screen wouldn't be useful to TiVo. The majority of the information there is for the customers benefit such as Recording Capacity/Free Space and MBT temperature. I could make a full list but that would take up a lot of time.
The enthusiasts and professional installers would find having the internal and external hard drive temps useful to troubleshoot problems (like the expander getting too hot in an enclosure), and as to cost, there isn't any because it can be put into a software update next quarterly rollout. It's not like it would require them to completely redesign the entire core structure of how a TiVo works, it's cosmetic. The drives already support it through S.M.A.R.T.
