For people, like me, who has no interest in NFL Football, but like the commercials shown during Superbowl,
here is a reminder about Undocumented Feature -- Content Advance

Instead of skipping all commercials, you can put your ReplayTV into a mode where it skips all of the content(show) and only shows commercials.

To enter the 'Content Advance' Mode:
- Play a show
- Press the Play button to go into Slow-Mo mode
- Press the FastForward button to go into 2X Slow-Mo mode
- Press the FastForward button again to go into 3X Slow-Mo mode
- Press Commercial Advance button once to turn off CA.
- Press Commercial Advance again and you've got...Content Advance.

To get back to regular mode - just repeat the process and it will change back to normal...

I found that repeating the process to change back to regular mode simply set it in Content Advance yet again. For me, to get it back into regular mode, Commercial Advance, all I had to do was press the Commercial Advance button twice, to turn it off and back on, and then it was back in regular mode, Commercial Advance...

I have to say that I was completely tickled by the fact that it actually displays "Content Advance" when you follow the above instructions. Although, at least for me, it didn't immediately skip forward to the first commercial. But, now with the addition of Show|Nav, I simply pressed the forward button, and it immediately advanced to the first commercial! And, it was cool that I could use Show|Nav to skip forward and backwards to the different commercials! Other than for the Super Bowl, I don't know what this would be good for. And, I don't know what they were thinking with the super secret method for switching modes (kind of like game cheat codes), but that is certainly pretty slick!

One of the former ReplayTV programmers/designers once commented on the feature and said that they designed the content advance feature to make it faster and easier to check/test the accuracy of the commercial advance feature improvements made to the 5k's.

PS: Content Advance only works on 5k's or 55xx's that have been "turned into" 5k's via WiRNS.

Still no news from New Zealand.
If we ever get any, we'll be sure to let you know.
