Andrew,Andrew_J_M said:Doug, I don't understand the logic of removing it from the wish list. Like most here (in this thread) I prefer to use the improved slip to Tivo's skip, in fact I gave up reprogramming the Tivo remotes for the skip so always used FF.
But there are Tivo fanatics out there who do like/love the skip, if you remove it from the Wish List they will cry foul. It would be better to leave it on and let it die by dropping into low number zone.
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.
