After a month of use I have settled on using a Harmony Elite rather than the Ignite remote for my HT. My AVR needs some special handling that the Ignite remote cannot perform. I miss the voice command button but it was not used that much.
As part of the Elite setup I created the following sequence to simulates a commercial skip. The results are not exact but it comes reasonable close:
- PageUp (set to 5 minutes) - delay 2 secs - Rewind x3 - delay 4 sec - Play
I programmed the Page Up button to skip forward 30 seconds on multiple boxes using the procedure in this thread (pressing Exit three times, entering 0030 (or 0300), and OK. )
What I am finding is that the 30 second skip works fine for a day or 2 but then reverts back to 5 minutes. Once that happens I cannot re-do the same steps to restore the 30 second skip. The only way to bring back the 30 second skip is to reboot the box. This restores the 30 second skip for a day or 2 but then it reverts back to 5 minutes again. This has happened on all of the boxes where I have made the change.
