I used it all last night, I didn't notice anything different it it's behavior.
Yes, it does. It doesn't occur 100% of the time, but it is frequent. I never saw this issue under 8.1.x.Did 9.1 Screw Up Your "30 Second Skip" and "Instant Replay"?
You just nailed one of the most frustrating things about this new "feature". I sure hope the conspiracy theorists aren't correct about this "fix" in that it's to appease the broadcasters and force us to go more slowly so we HAVE to see more of the commercials. If true, they obviously forgot about the "tiny little percentage" of us who also use it for Sports... Man this sucks. I hope to God it wasn't intentional.bkdtv said:Yes, it does.

I find it most obvious / irritating when watching football. Normally, I watch football on a time delay and FFW pass the commercials. Now, much of the time the DVR pauses for a 1/2 second when you press play, which means you see the result of the play (i.e. the down and yards to go, or changes to the score) before you've watched it.
Do you have an S3 or a new TiVo HD? Did you check it on a new HD recording? I had no glitches on an old Mythbusters in SD, but it does it on all of my new HD recordings.SeanC said:I used it all last night, I didn't notice anything different it it's behavior.
Hey Dajad.Dajad said:Your question is a bit misleading. EVERY time I get a system update of some kind (or the system is reset) the 30 second skip back-door has to be added back:
So, as with every other update I lost it until I added it back.
I've NEVER lost instant replay as that is a built-in TiVo function.
It only happens when you are attempting to "skip ahead" or do "instant replay" with multiple button presses in rapid succession. When you do this, the SAME IMAGE will stay on the screen perpetually until you stop pressing the button long enough for TiVo to "catch up". Try doing it this way and you will see what we mean.Saturn said:Ok, I just tried it and I'm not sure I would've noticed it without looking for it, but here's my analysis:
1. Playing a video, hit 30 second skip or instant replay.
2. TiVo starts playing the be-boop sound.
3. Video pauses ever so slightly on the current frame
4. Video skips forward or backward as appropriate.
I think the reason this may seem more apparent on HD is that the be-boop sound can't be played over dolby digital feeds, so the video pause is more noticable.
Well, actually it freezes the video on the first attempt, but it is barely noticable. If you hit the button again while it is frozen, it stays frozen on that same frame.bareyb said:It only happens when you are attempting to "skip ahead" or do "instant replay" with multiple button presses in rapid succession.

My sincere apologies Barry! For some reason I answered the question without paying attention to who wrote it. I thought it was a newb question. Had I noticed it was you I wouldn't have given a simplistic answer and would have taken your comment more seriously.bareyb said:Hey Dajad.
This isn't about LOSING 30 second skip and in fact, I've read the new update makes it permanent once you re-enable it. Which is GREAT. However. In my HD recordings it has made the image on the screen freeze and then lag far behind the button presses.
You basically see a static image on the screen while you are button pressing so you can't see where you are going or where you have been.
Do you have an S3 or one of the new HD TiVo's?Bierboy said:I have noticed no change in the functionality of 30SS with 9.1. No lags, delays or whatever on SD or HD recordings.
