    Hi, I just switched back to a TiVo after about a 13 year absence. With my previous DVR (Contour 2 from Cox Cable) the "D" command would take you to a "Delete" screen. A shortcut to delete. So, for instance, you could be at the end of a recorded program, hit "D" and "Delete Now" screen will show. One more click and the program is deleted. Anything like that with TiVo? I don't see any way to "Delete" a program quickly while I'm watching it unless it's at the very end of the program and then it prompts me to "Delete" or "Save".
    Thanks in advance.

    In the Now Playing screen, the 'clear' button will delete in pretty short order.

    While watching the show try hitting the ->| button to skip to the end, followed by the TiVo button which gets you the Keep/Delete screen.

    The Clear button will delete shows from My Shows menu. So you could hit back to get to my shows and then clear. Or you could hold down the 30 second skip button to jump to end of recorded program and then trigger the delete option just like when watching to the end.

    You can always press the Left arrow to exit the playing show and return to the Shows list. If you are within 5 minutes of the end, it will ask to delete or keep. While in the Shows list, highlighting the show or folder and pressing Clear will delete, and if on a folder, it will ask to confirm.

    Also, I batch delete with KMTTG regularly. Mostly the TiVo Suggestions folder.

    Thanks for all the suggestions.
    Another question. Is there a way to convert the 30 sec slip to instant skip?

    While playing a show, press Select-Play-Select-3-0-Select.
    While in Live TV, add an extra Select to the front of sequence, on a screen clear of Tivo dialog.
    You will hear 3 dings if successful.

    Pretty much all the SPS Shortcuts are built in to KMTTG, so, in my opinion, it's better to learn it sooner than later.

    Not yet using pyTiVo. Can't find TiVo Media Access Key. I've looked through the Settings menu and can't find the Key. Where do I find it? My pyTiVo desktop says "No TiVos Found.

    Or there is a link if you log into your account on tivo.com

    Tried that last week and it didn't work. Tried again and it didn't work again. Tried once more with my RF Remote and it worked. Not sure why but thanks.

    Another issue I'm having. The TiVo Remote sound effects dings are no longer audible. I checked that the sound effects was on and it is set to medium. Any suggestions?

    Thanks. OK found it. Now on pyTiVo, still says No TiVos found. The TiVo and my PC running py are hard wired to the same network. Ideas?

    You may need to completely shut down pyTivo, including the tray app, and restart it. Sometimes that soft reset it does when you change the settings doesn’t work.

    If that doesn’t work then it's likely a firewall issue. The first time you launch pyTivo it should ask you about allowing it to access the firewall. If it didn’t, or you answered no, you'll have to either punch holes manually or uninstall and then reinstall so that it asks again.

    Can you use your browser (as a test).

    https:// [your Tivo IP here] /nowplaying/index.html

    See if you can get a login screen. You can login as user: tivo and PW is your Media Access Key.

    Sound effects are disabled when there is an active video window and that content has DD audio. You can disable DD and use PCM in the Settings menu. You can also disable the video window with the Slow button.

    With that address I get "This site can’t be reached". If I use the same address without the "now playing" in the address, I get
