Thread: Advance button on remote not returning to program start

    Advance button on remote not returning to program start

    Previously, pressing the advance button twice would return to the start of a recorded program. This feature doesn't seem to be working on OzTiVo. Can this be fixed? Is there any other fast way to return to the start of a recorded program?

    I just use the FF then skip button to jump right to the end, top left button, then say "No, keep this program". This puts you right at the start as if you had never played the file at all. Hope this helps

    Yes, your method works, but the previous method of returning to the start via the advance button was much simpler. Is there any reason why that functionality cannot be restored?

    It's now been replaced with a three minute skip instead. The advice on Whirlpool was that it was too difficult to restore.

    You just have to learn to use it differently, which is a small price to pay for getting the TiVo back in service.

    Just press rewind once, then the advance/skip button a few times.

    I haven't tried it, but the thing that changed it to the new functionality is clearly marked; just undo it. I.e., for 11.3b10, what did it was
    Code:
    echo -ne "\x10\x40\x00\x26" | dd conv=notrunc of=${TIVOAPP}.patched bs=1 seek=7310200
    What will undo it is
    Code:
    echo -ne "\x14" | dd conv=notrunc of=/tvbin/tivoapp.patched bs=1 seek=7310200
    (You can do that on the tivo, via telnet or ssh; no need to pull the drive again)
