This is one of the major things that sets Tivo apart from the other DVR's!
The Series 3 TiVos are the last that have this feature (both S3 and S3-HD). From S4/Premiere on, this feature was lost.
Like you, I absolutely love this. I've actually kept alive an older S3 in my bedroom, just so I can watch the Today Show at 1X-FF w/captions in the morning as I get ready for work.
I talked to TiVoMargret (sp?) about this not long after the Premieres were released. She said a rewrite of the code base killed this, and there was no easy way to bring it back.
Funny timing on your post. I've been setting up my new Roamio Pro over the last couple days. My Elite has been relegated to 2nd tier status, and it has been moved to the bedroom. The S3 is now awaiting its fate. I don't really have the room or desire to keep two TiVos in the bedroom, so my days of watching Matt & Savannah (mainly Natalie
) at FF-1X is over.
OTOH, I am loving the new Pro. Sorry to hear of your problems. Hopefully, once it's all worked out, it will be worth it to you.

None of the current ones. But the Series 3 can do it.
