In one of the posts, Earl mentioned that for all the commands such as "skip to end", "skip to beginning", etc. a completely separate IR command is sent after 3 seconds. I know most people, including myself, with Harmony remotes have some difficulty getting these commands to execute successfully. The best solution was to hold the button for 3 seconds, release, then press again.

After thinking about what Earl said, I decided to try something. I had the Harmony learn a new command directly from the HR20 remote. What I did was block the IR emitter (with my hand) for 3 seconds then quickly point the remote at my Harmony just in time to catch that separate command.

It works!

Now my "skip to end" works just like it does on my Tivo.

This is not an easy process though. It takes a lot of guess and checking. What I did was create 5 different commands such as SkipEnd1,SkipEnd2, SkipEnd3, etc. and attempt my "hand blocking" technique 5 times. I then tested it on the receiver and once I found a successful command, I went back and deleted the others.

Hope this works for everyone else.
Nice, I'll have to try this when I get home. Thanks!
