    Has anyone seen this problem? I expanded a recording from 1 hour to 2 because often this late at night the schedule is off what it should be due to a sporting event, and the first hour has the 15 minute ticks, but the last hour does not.

    See picture for example.

    Looks like a bug. Probably caused by padding the program an extra hour.

    speaking of the ticks....is there an easy way to "skip to tick" marks like there was with DTivo's?

    Hold FF down for three seconds, it skips to the next tick.

    Many of my 30 minute recordings have been completely absent of tick marks since the last update.

    Seems like the recording must be longer than 30-minutes, or you don't get any ticks. Not sure if that's a bug, or by design.

    thanks, got it to work.

    What about when watching Live TV. I can't even figure out how to jump to start/end. I imagine you can't skip to tick in live tv since I couldn't do that with DTivo either.

    I'd also like to know if there is a way to quickly jump to the end of a program.

    I'd also like to say I hope D* does something about how this 15 minute tick works right now. Why not program the arrow keys to allow jumping quickly through a program? And perhaps they could program it so that if you hold down the right arrow for 3 seconds you jump to the end.

    Curious - Are the programmers reading these threads?

    Just posted a note on jumping to start/end here. Press & hold 6-sec skip-back or 30-sec slip-forward, at least for recorded programs. I think it works in live shows that have been paused, too, but haven't tried in a few days...

    I noticed that 30 minute programs are missing tick marks as well. I would think it would be a bug.

    This does not work for me on any recording...just have to wait until 3x gets me to the end. Anyone else?

    This works for me! Thank you for the information!

    Though, I really don't like the way they programmed this. They should have used the navigation arrow buttons.
