just chiming in with the most important TiVo hack, the 30-second skip! while watching Live TV or while playing back a show, enter the following: select + play + select + 3 + 0 + select you'll hear the 3 TiVo bings (Bing! Bing! Bing!) for confirmation. now you can enjoy commercial skipping in :30 increments!
