I just got the dvr today. I never had Tivo so Im really loving this baby. Ive read that there is a way to have a 30 second skip button, is this true? And also is there a way to cancel one specific program without cancelling all the programs? Thanx a lot guys!!!

I am not aware of the 30 second skip ahead function. There is a replay funtion on the DVR. I think if you want to cancel a particular episode without canceling the others you have to stop the recording when the show starts. Otherwise just used the first run function and don't record the repeats if that is kind of what you mean.

welcome to the board... I finde the DVR to be a very good machine. I haven't seen a 30 sec button or a hack for it.

I agree Sean. I just got it on tuesday (with the firewire port) so Im still getting used to it. So far, I like it. The 30 second skip would be great but Im using the FF button. Its quick so I sometimes have to rewind to get back where I need to be.
All in all, I think its a good machine.

FROM AVS FORUM:

"Scientific Atlanta actually physically removed or disabled the 30-second skip option from the software. It used to work with a programmable remote but no more, or at least no one's figured it out again."

Looks like you are out of luck. :(
