Hey guys.... This 30 second jump thing comes back to me every...I dunno...maybe six months or so when one of the overnight upgrades somehow brings back the 5 minute forward skip. Maybe like you....I have pulled out my hair trying to remember how to reprogram the thing to get back to the 30 second forward skip. Tonight....I had to figure it out again. This is what worked for me. 1) Turn the power off on your DVR so that it reboots. 2) After it reboots and a TV show appears on the screen.... 3) Point the remote directly at the face of the DVR and....just as in the above comments...push EXIT EXIT EXIT 0030. I did not push enter. I simply went to a recording on the DVR and sure enough...confirmed that I did indeed have my 30 second forward skip back ! Best of luck.

My X1 Box seems to have updated last night (091616). I found this morning that I was missing my previously programmed 30 sec skip forward. Let me share with you what worked for me.....I tried the old directions found via a Google Search of "EXIT EXIT EXIT 0030 ENTER" and it did not work. Let me show you what worked for me. Do a RESET by fairly quickly pushing the following buttons with no pauses: EXIT EXIT EXIT 0500 OK The channel will change to 500. Not sure what I did....but I was also asked if I wanted to record what was on Chan 500. I pushed OKAY to that too. Then, I waited a few seconds and pushed EXIT just to make sure I was clear and back to LIVE on Chan 500. After about 30 seconds....I pushed the following buttons...once again quickly with no pauses: EXIT EXIT EXIT 0030 OK. I then went to a recording and started playing it. IT WORKED !!! I now have back my 30 second skip forward and 15 second skip back....just as before last night's X1 update. Hope this helps other folks out there. BTW.....what xFinity X1 customers REALLY WANT is a FOUR MINUTE skip forward and a 15 second skip back. If anybody figures out how to do that....ENQUIRING MINDS WANT TO KNOW !!!! .....Cheers !
