    Anyone else have this? For the past week sometimes the 30 sec skip turned to about 5 seconds. Quite bizarre. I figured out after I turned it on and off, it worked. Then this AM I woke up to channel not available and was forced to reboot. the 30 second skip then worked ok for a bit then reverted to 5 again. Toggling on and off worked again. But any idea why this is happening?

    I doubt it has anything to do with it but I just turned on Tivo suggestions as a space indicator this week. Weird coincidence though

    edit: I know we are in the HD group but i just wanted to be clear I only have seen this in HDtivo, not the t60. Posting your model may help also.

    Yep, happens to me every few weeks. When this happens, the FF modes also don't work right. I just reboot and everything returns to normal.

    It usually happens if I'm really FFing and 30 second skipping a lot in a short amount of time. It almost seems like the TiVo is getting confused.

    How do you turn on 30 second skip?

    I have never seen this problem with any of my HR10's and I always use the 30 sec skip. Could it be a symptom of a HD going bad?

    I noticed it on some of the NFL "Game of the Week" in HD that I record on ch. 98. Seems like there's all kinds of glitches there. They've got one slated for 2PM EST, Super Bowl no doubt, that when I try to record from the guide, it wants me to "purchase and record".

    I love this forum! I JUST happened to tool by this afternoon and noticed your post....last week I did a search and couldn't find any info about the same symptoms you described....and I didn't have time to post about it.

    I've had my 250 sub'd since right after Thanksgiving and this just started happening last week. My other 250 doesn't show ANY of the 30 second or ffwd'ing issues.

    None of my SD Tivos have shown this issue yet either.

    FWIW, I've only had this happen twice and one of them was last week (but only during one recorded show).

    This only happened recently to me (got the unit in oct. i think) and has never happened with my T60 in almost 3 years. It's nice to be able to toggle on/off without a reboot, especially since I dont get the 119 and the fruit loops take forever to get to 100% when I do have to reboot.

    I'm going to try to narrow down if perhaps it's OTA vs satellite but not sure if that's it at all. But the more info people post the better we can all feel :)

    I've seen this too. It seems to happen in distinct sections of some shows. Almost like to program data is different.

    It happens to me farily often. It usually happens when I've been pressing the button a lot, although that could be coincidental. Often, it just starts working again without me having to so anything. Sometimes I toggle the 20 second skip off then on although that doesn't always work.

    By the way it happens to me for both 30 second skip and 8 second rewind. It just jumps one frame or about 1 second.

    Maybe it 'is' a conspiracy :)

    This has happened to me too. I believe it only happened when I was watching an HD program that was longer than 1 hour (recorded Inside Actors Studio with Chappelle last night) and it was doing it then. YMMV

    I've only noticed it in live TV when rewound into the buffer. When you get close to the end of the buffer (close to live) the 30 sec jump seems to get shorter.

    I just noticed this today for the first time. It happened while I was watching an HD basketball game that I had recorded. It also seemed to start when I was quickly hitting the 30-sec and replay. I don't have an OTA connection so it only has occurred from a satellite-received recording. My HR10 is about 5 months old. My SAT-T60 nor my SV-2000 has never done this.

    Last night it happened again and now it is bugging me, since I like to fast forward past all the BS while watching the olympics.

    Figured I'd revive this and bump it up to see if anyone else (other than those on this thread) is having the issue lately.

    I'm still experiencing the 30 second skip turning into 2,3,4,5 seconds as well as when I hit the FFWD button twice or 3 times....it's almost like it's "Stuck" on the 1X FFWD mode....where it's moving ahead at the 1x speed....although I've hit the button (and it shows on the green location bar) as 3x. Go figure.

    Also, just a few nights ago, after the 2nd FFWD button hit the unit goes RIGHT to "pause"....and I have no clue why. Hitting play "unpauses" it. And then hitting FFWD 2x's again returns the unit to "pause" again.

    Odd. :confused:

    It's getting VERY darn tedious trying to get through SportsCenter on this unit. I think I'll just start recording movies and such so I can avoid the Fast Forwarding issues.... :mad:

    I've had it happen with some areas of Olympic coverage.
