    Series 2s offer one advantage.

    To be used with digital cable they need something (which you have to rent from the cable company) that tunes the cable channel and sends it in analog form to the TiVo as either NTSC Channel 3/4 or composite video/stereo audio.

    This lets you record "not originally an OTA" cable channels and still be able to copy them to PC via Desktop or the open source stuff.

    If you've got an S3 or higher, you have to have a cable card for digital cable and are at the mercy of the cable company's decision to set the CCI bit.

    (why yes, I am on TWC, how could you tell?)

    Although apparently if the cable company really want to be pr**ks about it, they can slap some Macrovision on the analog output of cable boxes and DTAs, and the S2 software will honor that. :(

    Those dealing with such frustration usually find it much easier to just download the show a few hours later via Bittorrent or Usenet. With the commercials already excised, to boot.

    You probably need to go into

    Settings

    Audio

    Sound Effects Volume


    and make sure you've got them turned on.

    After that I'd suspect lack of 3 boings to be an indication that what you did didn't "take".

    Thank you for your answer. That did not solve my problem.
    I get the boing when I get to settings. Very strange.

    Are you configured for Dolby Digital and using a receiver? If so, you won't get the sound effects except on the SD menus (and in some cases when you come out of them back to the HD menus until you watch live TV or a recording).

    I did have it configured for Dolby. I had a misunderstanding of that output. I am using HDMI to my TV. I have an optical audio out put on my TV to home speaker system.
    I now have my confirmation boings.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    Thought I would wake up this old thread to add an update/confirmation for how this feature works with TiVo Bolt / version 20.7.1.RC2, as I appreciate HerronScott directing me here.

    I don't see ads or anything below my progress bar that might interfere with this; am I supposed to? Glad I don't!

    Doubt this or any other sequence starting with Select can work while playing back live TV, as Select pulls up the mini-guide, nor while the progress bar is visible and offering QuickMode if you press Select.

    Works most reliably if sequence is entered during recording playback when the recording is paused.

    I was previously clearing the bar during Pause by pressing the forward button once, so this is a great feature.

    For the code to work in Live TV, such as:

    Select-Play-Select-9-Select
    Clock feature toggle

    Use Select-Select-Play-Select-9-Select.

    First Select brings up Mini-guide while the next clears it and starts the sequence.

    Ah, good - and this is an easy way to view the "mini-banner" (when you shut the mini-guide). I'm used to the Series 1, where Right would open the mini-banner, and a second Right would open the full banner. Now Right only opens the full banner (same as pressing Info), and the mini-banner can't be visible when y ou do this.

    I'm used to using Right, not Info, so I have an amusing way to open the full banner when the mini-banner is showing: Left to clear the mini-banner, then Right to open the full banner. If I press Left too late (that is, after it clears), I'll probably end up back in the TiVo menus, which is what makes my technique amusing. But I find this easier than fumbling to find the Info button.

    I have discovered one valuable use for Info - it's the only way I've found to see the full description of a program, and only when you get into program details from My Shows or ToDo List.

    What is the code to disable fast forward and rewind overshoot correction for 20.1 software version tivo. I see the codes area looks a bit outdated.

    That's a good question. I've found that these codes may come with undesirable side-effects. Quick-clear of the progress bar during Pause also clears it instantly during FF and Rewind, which I personally don't find helpful.

    Massive list of codes.

    How about distilling then down to the *four* that would be of most general interest or utility?

    The 30 second skip would be #1 in my book, but as I read through the others, I saw few that interested me and most were incredibly technical.

    Would love to see suggestions as to a coup,e of others that are worth using — and that work recent boxes, e.g., the Roamio. I had to put the 30 second SKIP back in after putting in a larger hard drive — had forgotten that the so-called 30-second “skip” is really just a fast forward move showing you the ads! The code restores the actual SKIP functionality.

    But maybe there‘s another good one I’m missing. (The next most popular one seems to be to show the time during fast forwarding or info screens, but we're among those whomdon't want to know what time it is. Or, maybe I misread that tip,and it's about showing time remaining in a show...)

    I only use two when needed, the 30s one isn't anymore (even with reboots/updates), but the other one someteimes is:

    S-P-S-Pause-S - Toggles the fast disappear of the Play bar. Appears to have no other major effect, but who knows?

    S-P-S-3-0-S (1.3, also 2.5, not 2.0 or 2.01) - Toggles 30 second skip mode. This turns the Skip to End button into a 30 second skip button. This was removed in 2.0x, but added back in 2.5.

    And I use these shortcuts sometimes:
    10. Shortcuts
    Backdoor mode not required, listed here for completeness.

    TiVo 0 - Plays the TiVo guy boot movie
    TiVo 1 - Goes to the Now Playing list. (in 2.5, goes to the Season Pass Manager)
    TiVo 2 - Goes to the To Do list.
    TiVo 3 - Goes to Wishlists (in 2.x+)
    TiVo 4 - Goes to the "Browse By Name" screen.

    Perhaps depends on the box in use (e.g. pre-Premiere units) ?

    That left me confused. Sounds like a contradiction.

    I just reinvoked the 30-second skip mode on our Roamio OTA. Works like a charm.

    Oh, wait! Do you mean it's no longer possible on the latest OS? In which case, one more reason to never upgrade to it!

    The 30s skip does still work on Premiere, Roamio and Bolts.
    When on LiveTV, Pressing select brings up the mini-guide, So, s-s-p-3-0-s will toggle 30s skip. While playing a show, its just the original sequence (s-p-s-3-0-s).
