    Has anyone gotten select play select 30 select to work on a tivo premiere elite with the new software? I'm not having any luck.

    all set mods, feel free to delete - have to play a showcase video.

    just noticed this. can't SPS30S anymore - keep running in to the mini guide when I hit Select, which results in choosing a different channel instead of the command.

    You can also do it by playing a video from the old SDUI.

    Just noticed this as well - if you switch to the SD UI you can SPS30S while watching a recording. if you switch back to the HD UI the 30 sec skip is still active.

    as I wrote above, not sure how to bypass the 'mini guide' that pops up in the HD UI when you try to enter SPS30S. but at least there's a way to get it turned back on!

    PS don't know about the rest of you with Premieres, but we're pretty pleased with the new software load. It's what the Premiere should have been from the get go. So slow and bloated originally we stuck with SD menus for a long time, but now have finally started using the HD UI

    I think you can enter any of the SPS codes while playing back a video in one of the ShowCases as well. I'm able to SPS-Pause-S to disable the "Pause Menu" this way.

    Just wanted to add my two cents...
    I have a Tivo XL4
    Using the HD Menus, I could not perform SPS30S.
    I went into settings to switch to the SD menus.
    Then went to Live TV.
    Performed SPS30S with success.
    Switched back to HD Menus.
    30-Second JUMP is working again!!!

    I have to say, I really hate the 30-Second SCAN. It takes too long and is just annoying after being used to using the JUMP for about 10 years. I can see if someone is new to Tivo, the SCAN would be fine for them.

    I used the 30 second skip for around eight or nine years before the Premiere came out. And I really didn't think I would like the 30 second scan. But once the Premiere came out and I started using the 30 second scan, I found I liked that much better than the 30 second skip. Now I couldn't imagine going back to the 30 second skip. I like the 30 second scan so much better. Now I dislike using the 30 second skip on my GFs S3 boxes. And have zero desire to use the 30 second skip on my Premieres.

    You can also enable in HD Menu while watching live TV.

    In the new Tivo Premiere SW, doing SPS30S while watching a recorded show would bring up the mini guide when you hit select, and would mess it up.

    But you can do this during live TV, you just have to bring up the mini guide 1st, make sure you have the grid mini guide showing, then start the SPS30S sequence.

    Why does this tread keep getting bumped randomly?

    And all you have to do is put an extra select at the beginning of the codes if on live Tv in HD menus.

    I di it for the clock. ssps9s

    With 20.2.2 you can now enter it normally using HDUI while playing back an existing recording since the mini guide no longer comes up when you press select during playback. i.e. Select only brings up Mini Guide during live TV now which makes more sense.

    Are you subscribed to the thread, or do you just happen to notice it at the top of the column?

    Either way, it could be that by the time you look to see what's been added the spam that bumped it has been attended to by the mods.

    Hadn't seen the extra select tip before.

    Did you know there are people in need of a Sony 3000 image?

    In the "Messages & Settings" for the Premiere, under Remote Control settings you can change the the Advance button to skip ahead 30 seconds or leave it at skip to the next tick. I assume this setting is also on the Elite?
