    Despite the jump in numbers, it must be minor since my Roamio and Mini both received it.

    The new version screws up the 30 second jump...

    Messed up mine also, and redoing the select- play-select-3-0, does not stay from one recording to the next.

    Same. Anyone gotten TIVO's attention on this? There appears to be more to this error- sometimes if one gets the 30 second skip to work again, the program starts playing at 1.5x speed (!).

    Mine is messed up too, since yesterday. Did the advertisers finally bring the hammer down on TiVo?

    30 second skip ruined on mine too. This has to be fixed or this may be the final straw to leave TiVo for good. Anyone contacted TiVo tech support yet?

    I have messaged them. We will see what they say. For a short-term fix, I notice that if you are watching a particular recorded program, you can set it back up and it works until you exit the program.

    TE4 - all 21.x releases are TE4, TE3 is the 20.x version chain

    Any updates here? So annoyed to have lost 30 second skip after 18 years of using it... I really hope it is just a glitch that will get fixed asap...

    I mentioned this in the other thread, I don't use SPS codes since you no longer have to, in the settings there's an option that lets you do a 30s scan instead of a skip and that works just as well for me.
    Does that work with this OS change? That's an officially sanctioned non-backdoor function.

    Is that a T3 option only?

    This is what TIVO said to me: "We received similar reports and we apologize for the inconvenience this may cause. This was already escalated to our advance team and should be close to a resolution. Please stay tuned for updates."

    In TE3 the setting under Remote, playback will flip from "skip to tick" to "30s scan"
    In TE4 it's not adjustable but the default is "30s scan" and the >| button will skip to tick in a FF or RW scenario.

    Because of this I don't personally see why the loss of the SPS30 "skip 30s" is that big of a deal, "30s scan" does the same thing, adds the same way with multiple presses, even tells you how long the scan will be since if you press it 4x it pops up "120s" you may not have the screen blanked, but it's a damn close and for me acceptable substitute

    Totally unacceptable to me, it judders its way slowly through rather than just jumping 30 seconds ahead, very visually upsetting. Hope they fix it soon, programming the SPS30S every time I watch TV is ridiculous.

    I'll be the first to say I don't understand, but to each their own, I missed SPS30 for a few days several years ago and since then scan 30s has done well by me.

    Same here. (Would like a 60s skip, but just hit the button twice ;))
