Advertisements I've not been able to program my tivo remote to skip commercials (30 second skip) anymore. I've tried at least 10 times to program it the way I always have (Select, Play, Select, 3, 0, Select) but it just won't work. I've taken the batteries out of the remote, waited a couple of minutes and then put them in again, but nothing seems to work. Is this happening to anyone else? And no, there's nothing broken about this Tivo remote.
