How to Program a 30 Second TiVo Commercial Skip for TiVo Remote

Posted by DVR daddy on

How to Program a 30 Second Commercial Skip for TiVo RemoteThere are different options for skipping commercials on your TiVo depending on which TiVo device you use.

30-Second Commercial Skip

If you have a TiVo remote you can program it to skip forward in 30 second increments by performing the following:

Every TiVo can do a 30 second skip – you just have to enable it.

Here’s how you do it:

  1. Start playing any recording.
  2. During playback press: Select – Play – Select – 3 – 0 – Select
  3. You should hear three bongs (if you don’t have the TiVo sounds  disabled), and you’re done.

Your “skip to beginning/end” button (the arrow pointing to a line) is now a 30 second skip button. During fast-forwarding or rewinding, the button will still “skip to tick.”

To turn the feature off, repeat the three steps.

"SkipMode" is Available on TiVo BOLT Series UESs and Roamio Series DVRs

BOLT and Roamio users have the ability to skip entire commercial sections with a single press of a button.

All BOLT Series UESs and Roamio Series DVRs with the current software version are SkipMode-enabled.
