Comcast Xfinity X1 Remote 30 Second Jump
I am a Comcast Xfinity Subscriber and recently got the new X1 platform. There are a lot of nice additions to it over their old platform but there are also a lot of bugs in it that they have not worked out yet that I won’t even go into. One function that I used all the time on the old platform that I’ve have grown to love is being able to jump 30 seconds forward in a recording on the DVR. The Page Up button skips forward 5 minutes while watching a program but how is this useful? Commercials are generally 3-4 minutes so you would have to go forward and then back 2-3 times. From what I have found, skipping ahead 30 seconds 5 or 6 times takes you to about 3 seconds before the commercial break ends.
Below is how to reprogram the Page Up button to skip ahead 30 seconds.
- Press the Exit button 3 times
- Press 0030
That’s it. Now pressing the Page Up button skips ahead 30 seconds and the Page Down button as well as the replay button skip back 15 seconds. If you wish to return it to the 5 minutes that is the default enter 0500. Trying other times like 0045 or 0100 have not lead to any success in my experiences though.
