Steve Garfield's Comcast TiVo remoteIn every generation there is a chosen key combination. It alone can stand against the commercials, the boring bits, and the forces of TV darkness. It is the hidden 30 second skip button on the TiVo remote control.

While no TiVo unit comes with a 30-second skip button, there's almost always a secret code that will let you turn one of your TiVo buttons into a commercial skipper. For a while it looked like there was no working code for the new Comcast TiVo remote controls, but Chunky Monkey at the AVS forums has posted a method that will reportedly work.

All you have to do is hit the following keys:
  1. Rewind
  2. Slow
  3. Fast Forward
  4. Play
  5. 3
  6. 0
  7. Advance
Now the button with the right arrow under the fast forward button will advance 30 seconds whether you're watching live, recorded, or on-demand programs.
