Which do you use?
I use 30s skip as I don't want to see any parts of the commercials (except for the few frames in between clicks).
I use 30SKIP as well....once I remembered it existed!!! I imagine the vast majority of users don't even know 30SKIP exists, unless it's in the manual somewhere.
How about a quick tutorial for those of us who don't know the difference?
Skip goes instantly 30 sec ahead...Slip has you watch that 30 secs in fast mode...
I use Skip
To switch back and forth, do a keyword search for either 30SKIP or 30SLIP. It will find no matches, but the change will have been made.
I think slip is really annoying, Skip all the way
I find I have better control with slip. I can pump in about 5 or 6 of them and stop it if I want to. You cannot stop skip easily nor see how far back you have to go if you go too far.
I initially went to skip when it was available because that was what I was used to with Tivo but found that (primarily on HD), skip has far less control and is more disruptive.
I had skip only on my HD Tivo and now on my Fios DVR. I wish I had slip.
I've used both but I prefer Slip.
I remember when getting my DECA installed that one of my HR20s didn't like the upgrade so I got an HR24 to replace it. I forgot that the skip wasn't on by default. Took me forever to find the code name but once I put it in all was good. Funny the things you take for granted.... Oh yeah, 30SKIP works on the H stand alone receivers too once you get MRV working (for those that weren't sure).
I concur. Using skip often takes me a few seconds too far, but I can control slip and stop exactly where I want.
I tried skip a few times watching football and it was practically useless. It always ended up after the QB was throwing the ball or I'd miss a good portion of a play.
That being said, I don't even use slip very often, but instead use FFX3 most of the time.
I like slip just in case there is a commercial that catches my eye.
30Skip all the way here!!!
Here is a request though, can we get the control bar, the time left in the show, at the bottom like the 30slip does. I use 30skip on all my receivers but would like to see the time left in the show with the bottom bar showing up to see how far I go. Please!!
SKIP on my HR20s - but I wish they'd add it to the R15s!
... and if I go a little too far with SKIP, I use the back button once or twice. I watch TV for the shows - NOT the commercials.
Skip. . .I don't want to see the commercials!
Slip for me. I like being able to see where I'm at.
I agree. Plus I want to be able to see if a new show is coming on soon.
But the majority of the time I still use FFx3.
I would like to be able to use slip locally ( I like knowing where I'm at), but prefer skip watching MRV, seems to be more responsive.
