    The Secret Method to Skip Commercials with One Button on Your DVR (click for full article)

    Introduction by Casey Chan - Oct. 3, 2013
    Original Post by Alan Henry on Lifehacker

    -- DVRs have made all our lives better, that's a verifiable fact. But fast forwarding through our DVRs is an inexact science, sometimes we skip too far and have to slowly rewind with awkward button combinations. Other times we're too fearful of faster forwarding that we cut it off with too much left to go. No worries. Lifehacker put together a list of ways to create a secret automatic commercial-skipping button on your DVR. Clean.

    My cable company actually disabled the 30 sec skip button on the remote. I use an old remote for the same brand DVR and the 30 sec skip feature worked. I was able to set the yellow button as a macro and when I press it the 30 sec skip button is automatically pressed 5 times for a 2.5 min commercial skip.
