    It is set for 30SLIP right now. If you want to use 30SKIP you have to do a keyword search for 30SKIP. To go back to 30SLIP keyword search 30SLIP.

    The poll omitted the largest category actually used....

    The keywords are 30SKIP or 30SLIP. Just go through until DONE. No results.

    I generally use the 30Skip feature unless the first commercial is a product I'm interested in....

    I dont understand the options as they seem rather repetitive.

    If the question is, do I use it?

    If it isnt recorded I will usually pause a show for 15minutes to pad the buffer and allow me to skip all of the commercials.

    Same here, rarely use fast forward, unless I want to "skip to tick". Mainly use 30 Skip, which typically takes 4 or 6 skips to get back to the program. So based my answer in the poll on 30 Skip, not FF.

    I find it very depressing when I guess wrong whether it will take 6 clicks, or 8 clicks. We need a 30 second back feature for when you guess wrong.:lol:

    I voted to enhance my viewing but, I also do not use FF I use SKIP. And why do the responses for this poll add up to more than 100%?

    I use the 30 sec slip on my Genie, but I use FF on my H24s. The 30 sec button is way to slow to react on those.

    In response to the above post, it's multiple choice. You can select as many as you want.
