In more recent code there is also TiVo+Slow which takes you into Messages & Settings. And to expand on dbldbl's comment, there is an on-screen clock backdoor and others: http://www.gizmolovers.com/getting-started-with-tivo/

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!
