Enabling 30 second skip button on a Comcast TiVo remote

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.

Comcast subscribers will pay just $2.95 extra per month for TiVo

Comcast TiVoIf you've been waiting with baited breath to find out how much Comcast was going to charge customers for TiVo software on their Motorola set-top boxes, the wait is over: $2.95.

TiVo CEO Tom Rogers explained the new pricing during TiVo's quarterly earnings statement this week.

Now keep in mind, this doesn't mean you'll be getting TiVo service for just 3 bucks a month. Rather, that's how much you'll have to pay on top of whatever you already pay Comcast for cable service and PVR rental. But since Comcast generally charges less for PVR service than TiVo, this could turn out to a pretty good deal for consumers. And since you'll be using a Comcast box, you'll have access to video on demand without the need for a newfangled adapter.

TiVo and Comcast are expected to to start promoting the new service in the New England area soon.
