    Is there anyway to keep the 30-second skip permanently on?

    And, is there anyway to turn that clock feature off (I turned it on but cant turn it off).

    Thanks

    The same sequence that turns the clock on also turns it off, the sequence is a toggle. You need to select a menu for it to be removed from the screen. The 30s skip stays on as long as the unit doesn't restart or reboot.

    Besides the 30 second skip and the display clock functions, are there any others key hacks? For example, can the 30 seconds be set for 60 instead? I hesitate to randomly experiment because I might accidently find the "self destruct" combination :eek:

    The 30s can't be changed to something else, like 60s.

    Another sequence that I use is Select-Play-Select-Pause-Select.
    This one causes the bottom green status bar to disappear more quickly.

    And, because my DirecTV DVR is a series 1, I use Slow-0-Record-ThumbsUp to enable sorting of the Now Playing List.

    That's cool - just tried this out through my Slingbox and there it is - a clock. It also has a counter that shows how far through the show you are :) Nice.

    Thanks for this tip.
