There looks to be a a new DVR feature that is not yet documented on the Comcast web site. The feature is a part of the new A25 guide. It works for DVR recordings and allows you to skip ahead or skip back 5 minutes at a time.The skip ahead is accessed via the page up button and the skip back is done via the page down button. This is onthe Comcast silver remote. I have a DCT 6412 and a DCT 6208 (I know, I need to get a new box) and this feature works on both of these boxes.
Does anyone else have this new skip feature?
I can reverse 15 seconds with the button on the silver remote (the instant rewind button) and I also have the 30 second skip set up as per other posts on this forum.
The 5 minutes is helpful when you want to move ahead in a movie or a longer recorded program.
I think TiVO offers a 15 minute skip ahead which is too long in my opinion.
