Tivo: Skip Commercials 30 Seconds At a Time

With FX's announcement that they'll try a new advertising method where a single image is displayed for 30 seconds to foil those dastardly fast-forwarders, Tivo's hidden 30-second skip feature comes in very handy indeed. To enable this feature:

1. Bring up a recorded program
2. Hit these keys in sequence: Select->Play->Select->3->0->Select
3. You should hear three "dings" if you have sounds effects turned on.
4. To skip ahead in 30 second increments, just press the Skip-to-End button.

To disable this feature, just repeat step 2.
