    I'm looking at buying the Harmony 880 remote. Can you program it for the 30 sec skip function (i.e. SELECT-PLAY-SELECT-3-0-SELECT)?

    Why would you need to program it? It is no different than using a peanut remote.

    If you TiVo restarts itself or you power it down you use the same S-P-S-3-0-S sequence with your Harmony 880 or TiVo remote to re-enable the 30 second skip.

    Just to be clear (or is that "beat a dead horse :)"):

    The S-P-S-3-0-S sequence has no effect on the remote itself. That button on the remote will send the same "advance forward" IR signal to the TiVo.

    When the TiVo sees the S-P-S-3-0-S sequence, it knows that "advance forward" means "advance 30 seconds" and not "advance to the end", at least until it reboots.

    Since this is handled by the TiVo and not the remote, which remote you use makes no difference.
