I am considering the purchase of an HR20. I currently have a SD directivo and use the 30 second skip a lot. I was told that this feature is only functional in a recording and not usable for the buffer on an HR20. I understand that the skip is actually ultra fast forward, which I can live with, but that it does not work on a paused live program(buffer). I heard that this only worked on a recorded program. Can anyone advise how this feature works on an HR20.
