Theh ONLY way to watch football !
ok - my mistake - it is now BACK!!
Bring on Football..
I've also run into it not working untill you varied the speed of entering the keystrokes. I've found about 1 second between each does it, but YMMV. I always heard it had to be done during a recorded show, but that could be a Tivo urban legend. I find the skip a 1000 times better than the 'fast-forward' "slip" of the R15 family, BTW.
Perhaps I wasn't doing it right, but I noticed I couldn't enter in the 30 second skip while watching a show that was recorded in HD. But again I could have just been miss hitting the remote buttons.
Nah.. HD ain't it... I do it all the time (100% ) while watching a recorded HD show...
I believe the key is to enter the code at a time when the current viewing position is not at the end, but somewhere earlier in the time stream.
For live tv, first rewind some back, then try code. That works here.
I programmed my remote to enter this code using a macro. That way when DTV takes it out (every few days), a single button press puts it back.
Huh? The only thing that takes the code out is redoing the code or a restart. D* doesn't take the code out in any other way shape or form.
I programmed the skip code and heard 3 "gongs" but have not noticed a difference. What button do you push to get the skip?
I did get the clock which is pretty cool.
Try adding an extra "play" to the beginning of the sequence.
I found I had to do this on my HR10 to get it to work.
Also, I found it had a better chance of working if I was playing a non 5.1 program,
as the TiVo sound effects are disabled while viewing 5.1 DD content.
It's the "skip to end" button.
Kinda looks like this ->|
Thanx again phox!!
If you heard three "gongs" then it didn't take. You should hear gongs or bongs after entering the 3 and the 0 (ignore them) and then if you are succesful, you'll hear three "dings" aftere the last "select". There is a difference between the bongs and the dings as I call them.
Very strange - have had 6.3 for a week or so with no probs. I was watching a recorded episode of CSI in HD last night and no 30-second skip. Not sure why I lost it since there was no other indication I'd had a spurious reboot. But couldn't get it back no matter how I tried to turn it on - varying time between keystrokes, etc. Finally gave up and used ffwd to watch the show as my wife was getting a little antsy Will try again today and if still no-go might try to force a reboot to see if it has any effect.
The reboot to install 6.3 removed the 30s feature. So you went a week before you noticed that it was missing?
I'd try another restart/reboot to see if it will take again.
