According to the engadget review, the 30 second skip code is gone (SPS30).
I know there is a new default 30 second "scan", but can anyone verify that the tried-and-true skip code really is gone?
There are two "unofficial features" Tivo shouldn't mess with - the 30 second skip and the ability to expand the internal hard drives.
If the SPS30 code is indeed gone, I hope Tivo quickly restores it. And ditto on the endgaget big thumbs down to reordering season passes locking up the entire box - never understood why this can't go in the background (or give the user the option to disrupt live processing to do SP maintenance).
