    Hi folks.. is there a way to disable the short re-wind that happens when you do a fast forward search?

    The rewind is intended to allow one to skip commercials or skip to a scene...without missing any of the program or that scene. You FF at 2x or 3x until you see the program , hit play, and you catch the last second or so of commercials without missing any of your program.

    Don't forget you can also enable 30-sec skip on the -|> button. To do that, enter the code "select-play-select-3-0-select" while watching time-delayed programming. You will need to re-enter the code if you reboot the Tivo (or if your power goes out).

    I can count on one hand the number of commercial minutes I have seen in the past three months.

    One of the top complaints among cable DVR users is the absence of this feature. So curiosity makes me ask, why would you not want this?
