xr15 30 second skip

New Poster

xr15 30 second skip

I just switched from the XR11 remote and I'm wondering if the 30 second skip functionality is available with the XR15 and the XG1v4.

Is it possible to reprogram the page up/down buttons to trigger a 30 second skip, instead of the multi-minute jumps that are default?

Thank you

voice remote "forward 15 seconds" or "go forward 15 seconds" "go back 15 seconds" "go forward 45 minutes". etc.

Re: xr15 30 second skip

Just switched to the 4k set-top box with xr15 remote. The voice command is nice, but I don't want to always say "skip forward 30 seconds"... I'd like to push a button most of the time...
So is there a program code to change from what is now a 10 minute skip, to 30 seconds?

try using the remote press quickly ->  exit exit exit 0030 then page up should change to 30 seconds. note the setting is in the box not the remote.

Re: xr15 30 second skip

exit exit exit takes you to a recording screen on the current program.  Then when you type 0030, it takes that as a channel search.  Voice commands are not an option when you are watching something you want to skip forward on many many times

Re: xr15 30 second skip

I'm thrilled to have the 30 second forward skip back using exit exit exit 0030 (thanks for that tip), but the exit exit exit 0030 changed the backward skip too and I want to keep the page down button triggering a five minute backward skip.  Is there some way to do that?

 

Yes, I know voice command is an option, but I don't think wanting to use my Harmony and have button control makes me a troglodyte.

 

(Actually, I'd love to have five minute and 30 second skips in both directions, which was the case with my POS 3400 that I just turned in, so it can't be that hard; but for now I'll settle for whatever I can get).

using the voice remote 'go forward 75 seconds' or minutes.

Re: xr15 30 second skip

Um . . . , my question is about programming the buttons on the remote, not the voice command.

That's unfortunate.  If I have to choose I'll choose 30 seconds over 5 minutes, so glad to have the option of reprograming the butons.  But if the engineers thought to give us that option, perhaps a future update could include an option for different time segments in each direction.

Did this just stop working for anyone else, like in the last 12 hours?

Re: xr15 30 second skip

yes...I tried to reset it back, but it failed
to do so. I hope there is a way to set the 30 seconds again.

Have you tried a voice command?

Re: xr15 30 second skip

It did work about an hour ago (EXIT EXIT EXIT 0030 ENTER) Now on a different DVR'ed recording it's back to 5 minutes. I'll try the sequence again in a bit.

the key is "different DVR'. the routine is setting the DVR not the remote. do the same routine on the different DVR

Re: xr15 30 second skip

Yes.  The 30 second skip worked great for a few months but it recently reverted back to 5minutes.  Now I can’t set it back to 30 seconds.  Very angry.

Sometimes, the remote needs to be very close to the X1 box, since you are programming it and not the remote.

Re: xr15 30 second skip

It worked when I got very close to the box.  The interesting thing is that now it jumps ahead 30 seconds on pg up but back 15 seconds on pg dn.  I’m good with that.  Thank you.
