    I've seen this referenced several times in posts but am ignorant to what this is? I usually use the skip button which I assume is for about 30seconds worth of material. Is this skip to tick?

    No. Holding down the FF key will (eventually) skip to the next tick. I'm assuming holding down RW would do the reverse.

    Yes. It's worth noting that if you have a non-DIRECTV remote, you have to hold for 3 seconds then tap again.

    Not one of my favorite features of this DVR.

    And _that_, ladies and gentlemen, is how one politely says "It SUCKS!" :D

    Haven't had a problem with the way most features were implemented, but skip-to-tick gets my vote for worst implementation.

    I think it is OK. Plus it actually works.

    I have a rm-2000 Sony Universal remote and have yet to make this work without grabbing the D* remote for my HR21. Even then it is not always successful.

    Times like these I miss my D*Tivo.

    I have no idea about that remote or the HR21. But it always works as advertized on my Hr20-700 and logitech 880.

    While implementing the skip to tick function with the press-and-hold methodology needlessly makes it harder to use than if they had simply done it the way Tivo does it, at least it’s not like the really poor choice to use press-and-hold for the slow motion function, which makes it virtually impossible to switch to slow motion at a precise point in the playback.
