Andrew, Thanks for your feedback. I guess that I have 3 factors that have played into my decision for removing it from the Wish List. I'm open to making an addition as suggested by milominderbender2. The factors in my decision were: (1) the Poll is roughly 3 to 1 in agreement that the changes are a suitable workaround to 30s skip (2) It is unlikely that DirecTV will ever consider implementing 30s skip regardless of the feedback it receives. (3) I actually really like the 30s slip now. I was certain that DirecTV could not satisfy me without 30s skip. The changes impressed me so much that I thought it warranted removal. With this complete turnaround in my thinking, it just threw up a red flag. So, Andrew, say the word regarding adding back a 30s skip type item into the Wish List. If you say "Do it" I'll make it happen.
