    My feeling is So What! So it Fast-forwards 30 seconds - I realize the old SPS30S was an instantaneous JUMP - I've used it for years! I'd like to see a video of it working from some others 'Lucky to find it.' I seriously doubt that it truly is happening.

    Instead, I've found seeing those 30 seconds flash forward lets me know what has been going on during that time and I perhaps have 'jumped too far.' I've thought of it as an improvement instead of a deterrent.:)

    First, I was only replying to your message where it appeared that you didn't understand what was being talked about. It surely wasn't apparent from this quote

    Second, I learned a long time ago that my personal ideas about how my DVR is used don't always match what others believe. A simple example, you talked about the on-screen clock. I tried that years ago and immediately turned it off. I have no use for it at all. But obviously it's important enough for you to mention it in your post.

    I wish I hadn't read about people getting the 30sec skip working on the THR-22.
    Now I'm obsessing about it and annoyed at the fact that I can't get it to work on either of my THR-22's

    Has your THR22 had to reset or reboot since you got this working? I'm starting to wonder if this was just a "happy accident" since nobody seems to be able to get it working. Can you repeat your steps after a reboot and make 30-sec skip work again?

    No reset and no power bumps. I am aware that this may be a happy accident and that is why I refuse to mess with it. If/when it resets I will try again. I will post results as well. There has been success other than myself though so it's not "just" a fluke.

    FYI to those who have kept up. We had a reboot today while troubleshooting the network queue and it kept the 30 second skip without having to reenter sps30s.

    My guess is that there's a small batch of THR-22 boxes that are unique such that the SPS30S affects them.
    Sadly neither of my 2 THR-22's are not among them.

    That's even stranger. On the other models I've had, you always had to reenter the code after a reboot.

    Yeah that's how I knew when my old DirecTivo boxes had rebooted.

    30 second skip was made persistent on most TiVos a long time ago.

    Since it is in s/w, that makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

    Then there truly is something very special about your THR22. Other Tivos require that code be re-entered after a reboot.

    frankygamer is the only other person to report they got this working, and only on one of his Tivos.

    As I stated above, that hasn't been true for a long time, at least on the s/a TiVos. I don't know about the DTiVos.

    It was always true of the DTivos.

    Seeing is believing, (unless you're a Magician!)

    Thanks for the video! :up:

    The OP said it didn't happen right away, so those expecting it happen instantly, then doing it again and again. The 30 skip code was toggle, do it once its on, do again its off. You're not giving it a chance to work, reset, do it ONCE, leave it alone for a few days, and see.
