    Well this is awesome. Formula one has been so boring this year, besides for the last race, I've used lots of quickmode. Most of the races deserve the 1.9 setting when you get beyond the first few laps!!

    I was playing with this code and accidentally hit the Tivo button during the sequence. Now I’m stuck with this weird yellow and green box graphic with numbers on the screen. Anyone have any idea how to toggle it back off?

    I ended up restarting which got rid of it, but I have no idea what remote sequence I pushed to get that or what it even is. This was on a Roamio Pro TE3.

    On a side note, I found that the speed change code didn’t always take. I found it easier to start from a paused playback state.

    Do i need to start the sequence with om QM on or off? Sometimes when i do it i hear that bung bung sound when hitting the 7 and boost number.

    Thanks. That SPS7S code is way too close to the SPS7#S code for changing quick mode. It’s no wonder I triggered it. Fortunately rebooting got rid of it, but I’ll remember this for next time.

    You don’t have to. It works either way. I’ve found that sometimes doing the code turns QM on and other times doesn’t.

    I’ve also sometimes gotten the bong sound. It just let it sit for a few seconds and try again. Originally I had no problems doing it, but after awhile it started working intermittently and then after getting into diagnostics mode, I stopped playing with it.

    Now how about a code that changes the skip ahead button from 30 seconds to something else?
    I would like to try 45 seconds and 1 minute.
    Also the skip back button would be better at 10 seconds than 8 Seconds as it is on a Dish box.

    So for the people that changed their QM setting (presumably) up, which speed are you now using?
    1.6 seems to be the highest speed that I can comfortably still understand pretty much what everyone is saying...it now enables me to watch shows (more than) 50% faster. (not also including skipping all the commercials)

    Programmable skip buttons would be a useful feature. I'm not sure I would mess with the 30-second skip forward, but the 8-second skip backward I would probably want to change to 11 seconds.

    AWESOME!!! Now I will not "have to" download shows to watch in VLC. reality/talk/documentary shows I watch at AT LEAST 1.5x.. if I can stand it, I do 2x.

    Since this "only" goes up to 1.9, good enough for me to avoid the bother.

    (Not meaning to be "they want a mile" person, but I suspect I'll be switching between e.g. 1.5 and 1.9 often.)

    I also now wonder if the CCs will be all messed up. Sometimes they get messed up in VLC sped up.

    I haven't tried this yet, but since I listen to (basically all) podcasts at 2x (and heck, for the ones I listen to with overcast, I even have the trim silences option on)... 1.5 and 2x will likely be the ones I try, since those are what I already use in VLC..
    (download show with kmttg, then transfer to AppleTV VLC app.. and watch 1.5 or 2x..)

    now I get to skip that step. Woohoo.

    Wait, this isn't really new if it's in the *old* UI.. right? There haven't actually been changes in that in a long time?

    Fingers crossed that the audio quality will be comparable to VLC’s.

    Well, the OP did frame it only as “new info,” which it does appear to be. It *would* be interesting to know how long it’s been in place.

    I'm guessing that you meant that tongue in cheek? If not, then yes, bug fixes and small improvements are still being made to TE3--thank goodness!

    I just watched this afternoon's Cubs/Padres game at 1.5x QM, and it was just about perfect.:)

    Yeah, I’ve found 1.5x to be no problem. 1.9x was OK for a replay of the US v England FIFA semifinal but difficult to follow if I care about dialog.

    It would be even *more* interesting to know if there are any other unannounced "easter eggs" available. :hushed:

    ok, I went to 1.9x, and saw the prompt on screen.. but it seemed to not actually be in effect until I actually went out of quickplay and then back in? That's my guess at least until I play with it more..

    and yeah e.g. my NBC Nightly News is understandable at 1.9x..
    (I'm pretty sure the podcast was the east coast version and this is the west coast version with newer info?)

    oh and based on my small small small sample size of listening/watching this for a few mins, the closed captions seem to be working properly too..

    WOOHOO!!!! I would've paid extra for this..if this has really been there as long as quickplay has been there, I wish it were official at that time..

    If you are already in quickplay, just do an instant replay and the speed will switch.
