Purchased new Harmony Elite/Hub to replace my still working Harmony One(I know dumb..) The buttons on the Elite work for fast forwarding and back but the skip buttons that are on the DISH remote and also as buttons on my One remote are not available on the Elite. So how have folks set this up? Reprogram another button or change a Gesture function? Please redirect me if answered here already but I couldn't find it with search function on the forum. Thanks.

Do a 'long hold' on the fast forward/reverse for the skip.

I reversed the skip/FF/REW buttons to click for skip and hold down for fast forward because I use skip much more often. You can program the buttons to do whatever suits you.

Thanks for your replies! I tried the long hold and sure enough I get the 30 second skip but I think I'm going to change the action of the button like patmurphey did. I also use the skip more then a long fast FF/REW.

Isn't this forum wonderful?
