Good evening @Ferkner,
Thanks for your post! I understand that skipping 5 minutes might be too far ahead.
Have you had a chance to check out the answers above?
As indicated by -G-, you can change the "skip ahead" interval to 30 seconds by pressing [Exit] three times, then key in 0030.
Don't forget to use the voice commands and say what you want the remote to do out loud. 🙂
Hope this helps!
"Yes, just before bed last night I tried the Exit x3 0030 trick and it worked. I am very happy about that."
great but the problem is will it stay at 30 seconds. I have had to do that only to have it revert back to 5 minutes. It has done this many times.
And it has reverted back to 5 mins.
Started watching a show that was currently recording. And the page up reverted back to 5 mins. It was fine for that last few days but then it never fails, will revert to 5 mins eventually.
I don't know why this would be happening... but I have also seen people report this problem as well in other support forums, and some also report that they cannot get the 30-second skip to stick at all.
Some seem to think that the box reverts back to the 5-minute skip after they use one of the X1 streaming apps.
I haven't tested this myself but one user discovered that the 30-second skip tends to stick for them if you set it as the set-top box boots up: Power cycle the Xi6 and key in "Exit Exit Exit 0 0 3 0" at the Welcome screen.
