    I hate the 30 sec skip, cause with it, there is no way to skip to the begenning or end of a program, now that button moves me 30 secs ahead, which i dont find usefull. ANyway to turn it off with the zipper?

    Thanks!

    Actually you can still easily move to the beginning or end. If you hit FF once and then the 30-sec skip button (I forget what that button is actuall called) it will advance you in whatever increments are on your time line. I'm not a huge fan of 30-sec skip, but I do like it enough that I haven't bothered to look for the way to disable it. I imagine someone will be able to easily answer your question. But I just wanted to point out that you can still move around in large jumps on the time line as long as you are in FF or RW mode.

    Sorry I should have thought before that last post. There is an easy way to disable it. On your remote just press the following sequence of buttons:

    select
    play
    select
    3
    0
    select

    That will turn it off. If you want it back on you can do the same sequence. You have to be watching live tv to do this I think.

    I forgot about that because in the past I never used 30-second skip until I zippered. Since then I've been more or less getting used to it. But it is that simple to turn off and on. Good luck.

    The only problem is that that will only disable it until the next time the dtivo reboots (2x/week). The 30 sec skip is enabled by superpatch, so the next reboot it will be back. I am not aware of any mods to superpatch to disable it, but it should be able to be done. You might want to check at the other site and ask in the newbie forum.

    I imagine you could find out what the old value was and edit the tivoapp to put back the original value for that one. Definitely search over at DDB.

    Check the superpatch 67 thread linked from the Zipper site. There are instructions for removing this in the first post. Be sure to edit the file in a *nix friendly editor. Also make sure you find the array for your sw version.

    From the first post in that thread:
    Code:
    CUSTOMIZATION
    
    I've included 2 non-HMO/MRV related patches: 
    30-second skip and backdoors.
    
    You may remove these patches prior to running 
    superpatch-67all by deleting them. The patches 
    are on their own line at the beginning of each 
    respective array.

    PS-is there a way to remove the patch after I did the zipper or do I have to rezipper again? thanks

    If there is a backup of tivoapp in your /tvbin directory, you could backup the current one and then restore the other backup.

    actually, I found out a way to go to the end of a program or recording, press either the RW or FF button once then the advance button and it goes either to the beginning or the ending of the program depending upon if you press the RW or FF button :p
    so at least for me there is no need to remove the 30 second skip

    Is there a way to move forward or backward tick by tick within the buffer (not on recorded stuff). It would be most helpful rather than just go straight to the end or beginning. For those of us who have a longer buffer having this option would save from long FF or RW.

    Sure, press FF or RW then press the advance button.

    That works on recorded things, not when using the buffer while watching live. Even on recorded things the RW, advance will take you back to the beginning and not tick by tick.

    That's not right. I just went in and double checked on a recorded show. Push the RW button and then the advance - it does it tick by tick. ;)

    I stand (sit on my couch) corrected. :eek:

    According to my manual, its the default behavior (Not 30 sec skip backdooor) of the advance button when watching live TV.

    Correction The non 30 skip behavior is:

    a) when watch live tv catches you up to current time.
    b) when ff/rew in a recorded program tacks you to the next/previos tick.
    c) if you are watching a recorded program takes you to the end, press again taskes you to the begining.

    So for live programing your choices for the advance button are either jump to the current time (Not backdoored) or 30 sec skip. (backdoored).

    The Zipper program should have made a backup of your original unpatched tivoapp file. You can restore it by renaming the current tivoapp file to something like tivoapp.hacked and then renaming the backup tivoapp file to tivoapp and rebooting. This will restore the stock tivoapp image but you can then use the superpatch script to reapply the patches. IIRC, the superpatch script does not include the 30-second skip but it will disable encryption and enable MRV and HMO, among other things.

    Superpatch DOES PERMANENTLY ENABLE 30 sec skip by default, but you can change that. go over to DDB to the superpatch thread and read about customizations.
