    Whats the code word to put in the search bar for auto skip like the Hopper?

    Surely its hidden somewhere in the software.

    Good one Ricky Gervais,but I do hope there is one in place for the future, once the Dish vs The Networks battle is over and D* can have it implemented without getting sued.

    Wow I never knew about this, gong to try this when I get home.

    Does it work on HR24s and HR21s or is it only for the Genie?

    It works on all clients as well. I thinknthe only ones it doesn't work on are SD receivers.

    That's right but on SD DVR's (R15, R16) you can SLIP at speed 2 and it appears as a continuous fast-moving picture. You don't get the jerky hard-to-follow mess you get from the HD DVR's. I don't mind at all that my SD DVR's don't SKIP but I'm sure glad my R22 does...

    I tried to do this last night on my HR34-700. How do you input 30SKIP without the "" on a smart search?

    The same way you type all searches.

    Thanks for the quick response. When I typed 30SKIP it appearred as "30SKIP". How do I eliminate the quotes or what is done after you type 30SKIP? Hit enter? Hit red button? I'm at a loss.

    dont type the quotations. The ones that appear around your search (looks something like {"30skip" keyword}) are fine.
