Just got an r15 and having a bit of trouble.

Alright, first off let me say I have a wierd dad. He bought a TiVo last year (not sure what model) and he insisted that I learn everything there was to know about it before he'd buy me one. Then he goes and buys me an R15 so I have to start all over.

I ok on most things, but I'm stumped on two things.
One: how do you prevent the season pass (equivilent) thing from recording just one episode of the series. Before on TiVo hitting the clear button would stop it, but the dash dash thing (which I've heard is the equivilent to clear) doesn't work.

Two: The only thing that made Tivo better than a good vcr was the 30-second skip hack. Does this unit not have it at all. If it doesn't I sell the r15 and buy something else on ebay.

First of all... the talk of the R15 has been moved to a different forum:

Too answer your questions:

1) Similar thing, you would go into the ToDo list and cancel the just the one recording
2) The R15 has no 30 second skip... They are supposidly working on something similar to 30 second skip, but as of right now... nope.. there is no 30 second skip
