I don't see that Cox has this on this cable box. Cisco 8742HDC

Is there a work around?

If not, I've read about some work arounds for boxes not having this.



So here is my idea??????

Can a LONG PRESS also have a sequence and a step added to it?

For instance, if I can time it right I want to do or try this for commercial skip.

Press and hold the >> button to get it in to the long press feature. Have a step added to it so it presses the >> again to get it in 4x FF mode on the DVR. Time it right so that at about 2 minutes (which is about 15 seconds in 4x mode) and then add a step to press PLAY.

But my main question is "Can a long press of the >> button activate a sequence and a step?"

That should work fine. You can do everything in one sequence, a couple of FFWD's, a couple of delays, then PLAY. But I would make it so the short press is the skip sequence and the long press is FFWD since you'd be using skip more often.

I haven't heard of any discrete codes for skip on a Cisco box, only Moto boxes.

What I did works well. I put in 12 second delay after it is FF 4X is just about right.

Maybe I'll play around with it at a faster FF speed to keep the time down!
