    I had a Tivo more than a decade ago (Standard Def) and I loved it's ability to fast forward smoothly. For example I could watch a sporting event in fast forward and still be able to actually watch the action. Every DVR I've had since leaving Tivo does not allow me to do this because the fast forward advance is very jerky. I have no idea if this is because they are different brands or because it is harder to smoothly advance HD. I am interested in switching to a Tivo Bolt (or Bol+), can anyone tell me if these will allow me to fast forward smoothly.

    A single FF press is smooth and watchable, double FF starts getting jumpy. The new Fast Mode is awesome. Read up on it. I love it for sports etc.

    The Bolt also has Quickmode. That let you watch a show at one point 1.3x speed with audio.

    Albeit, it can cause a bit of psychological anxiety . . . . ;)

    Yeah, it ties my wife up in knots! She can't stand it. And I can't stand watching news, baseball, The Late Show, etc. without it!
