30 second skip

Hi got the skip 30 seconds working by reading this page:

http://www.bigmarv.net/how/tivo30secondskip.html

But can't seem to get this bit working ??

The previous function of the skip to hash button (that is, jumping to the next "hash" mark on the playback progress bar at the bottom of the screen) can still be accessed by first pressing fast forward or reverse. Press the fast forward button and then press skip-to-hash and the playback will advance to the next hashmark (or the end of the program if you're close to the end of playback.) Press the rewind button and then the skip-to-hash and you jump back to the previous hash mark, or the beginning of the program depending on your place in the playback. Skipping past the end of the program takes you back to the start of playback.


I know it won't skip to the next hash, normally goes to the end, but i can't seem to get it to do that.

Any ideas please ?

Hi

Do you get the 3 bings after the last select?

It has to be entered reasonably quickly. Also you don't state where you are are you using a UK TiVo?

That website is wrong. With 30 second skip active, pressing it whil FFing just drops you out of FF.

Curious, the 30 sec feature has stopped on my Tivo and re-doing the Select Play Select 3 0 Select thing doesn't give me the 3 bongs or re-enable it....

My understanding was that in software versions 3 and alter (i.e. what the US have) the "skip to next tick" feature still works when using ffwd and 30 second skip enabled. I also never get the bongs when I turn it on, but then I have turned the sound effects off totally.

Just tried it again and it worked this time (including bongs!).
Either Tivo or I must have been having a "Senior Moment" and I guess it's probably that it was me!
