    Hello. I am new to Tivo and I was just wondering if there is anyway to fast forward to a specific time. For example, if I have a 2 hour movie and I want to skip ahead 1 hour do I have to hold the FF button until I get to that point or is there a trick to jump ahead?

    Thanks for any help.

    There isn't a trick to jump to an arbitrary point in the recording. For example, there is no way to jump to the 72 minute mark.

    However, there is a way to quickly move through a recording. Press the FF button once, then use the Advance button [​IMG] to just to the next white 'tick' mark on the green recording progress bar.

    By default these marks are every 15 minutes. On very long recording (IIRC 3+ hours), they start covering longer periods of time to reduce the number of tick marks.

    So FF, Advance, Advance, Advance, Advance, Play should leave you at the 1 hour mark.

    The number one feature I miss from my ReplayTV days.


    Ah, those were the days.
