There 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:
- Start playing any recording.
- During playback press: Select – Play – Select – 3 – 0 – Select
- 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.
