1. TiVo Remote Control Hacks > 13. Pushing Fast Forward to Eleven

Pushing Fast Forward to Eleven

If TiVo’s default fast forward is just not fast enough for you, this hack will satisfy your need for speed.

Now you might have made the play bar disappear quickly [Hack #6], but what if your speed desires have not yet been satisfied? Say you want to be able to blaze minutes ahead through a movie in just seconds. Or perhaps you’re more the turtle and prefer to crawl forward. This backdoor hack will let you set fast forwarding to just about any speed you prefer.

After you enable backdoors [Hack #8], find yourself at the Search by Title screen and enter:

Enter Enter 1

You should see a Speed1: prompt (see Figure 1-5), and the record LED on the front of your TiVo should be lit.
