    Hi all,
    one of my Tivo's burned out, and DirecTv replaced it with a directv DVR. I certainly don't like it, but I wasn't offered a choice. My question is this: Is there a way to program my directv remote for a 30-second skip like my TiVo remote? I MISS THIS FEATURE!!!!!

    Slightly more OT. Just to clarify something. With DirecTV TiVos you don't program the remote for 30s skip. You use the remote to program the unit for 30s skip.

    Yes Jim this is true but it appears that the OP no longer has a Directivo he now has that other box where there is nothing that is needed to be programed for the 30sec slip works right out of the box if you have the latest software.

    Thanks all,
    I know that stuff is not real welcome here, and I wish I didn't have to have that box in my house, but lilke I said, I wasn't given a choice in the matter. I specifically asked for a TiVo box as a replacement and was told I couldn't get one. Anyway, just to respond to one answerer, out of the box the remote has a button that when pushed FAST FORWARDS fior 30 seconds, so you still have to see the commercial, albeit at double speed. I was hoping someone could help me fix that so it was a real skip, not a FF.
    Thanks again!

    True. I just wanted to mention that fact for others who may stumble across this thread. :)

    Mill Creek,...
    The DirecTV DVRs don't instantaneously jump 30-sec ... it's more like 10x FF, taking about 2-3 secs to skip a 30-sec commercial. There is no way to make it instantaneous like the Tivo backdoor skip command.
