how do you enable this feature? would be useful.
What do you mean by 'TiVo add skip'?
AFAIK there is no way to get TiVo to automatically skip the adds. But TiVo does fast forward at up to 60x normal speed so getting through the adds on recordings is no problem.
it was from the following forum http://www.avforums.com/frame.html?...ms/showthread.php?s=&postid=624611#post624611
would be useful if it's true...
Check the TiVo Underground forum on this board for all the codes...
...but here's the one for enabling the 30-second skip:
2. Select-Play-Select Codes
These codes take the format of "Select Play Select Something Select". These do not require backdoors to be enabled for them to work. The best way to do this type of code is to start playing a recorded program and do them while the recorded program is playing. They can be done from LiveTV as well, but people generally have a hard time getting them to work when trying to do that.
S-P-S-3-0-S (1.3, also 2.5, not 2.0 or 2.01) - Toggles 30 second skip mode. This turns the Skip to End button into a 30 second skip button. This was removed in 2.0x, but added back in 2.5.
You do have to re-do this every time your TiVo reboots, but it's definitely a timesaver.
forgive my ignorance but what does enabling this feature exactly do? as the 1st reply says skipping thriugh adverts at 60x is very quick and this is what we do. If enabling this feature just skips forward 30 seconds each press of a remote button then I expect you press this several times during the advert break. Where as we press skip x3 to get fastest foward and then play after the adverts have finished.
why is this feature quicker?
It's not really any quicker, but some people find it more convenient. For shows that have regularly spaced ad breaks (ie, 3 minutes), you just have to hit the button 6 times and you're at the exact continuation of the programme. No messing around with the last few seconds of an ad or scanning back again because you were a little slow on the play button. Or, you're reaching for a drink and look up to see you've scanned too far.
It's also great for skipping the opening credits in shows, as a lot of them run for 30 or 60 seconds.
