    Just got the Home Theater Master MX700 remote, and it is absolutely fantastic! (returned my Sony AVR-3000 after one-too-many lock-ups... )
    My questions are:
    Does anyone have a discrete code for a 30-second advance for a Hughes HDVR2 DirecTV/TiVo hard-disk satellite reciever (similar to the button provided on Dish Network PVR receivers... ) ?
    Also, anyone have a discrete code for jumping straight to any disc (1 through 5) on the 5-disc carousel of the Harmon Kardon DVD50 ?

    Thanks - and anyone interested, I'd be happy to elaborate on why I think so highly of the HTM remote.

    aaron: Have you looked at the Pronto file database over at remotecentral.com? This would be the best chance for your desired codes. (It's late and I haven't looked for any of them for you...sorry!)

    The latest version of the 700's program, MX-Editor, can take Pronto .ccf commands and import them into a device on the 700. You want to use the Universal Browser icon on the MX-Editor's menu bar.

    There is also an HTM forum @ remotecentral.com if you need any help in getting things to work using the Universal Browser.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks Chuck,
    I found a crack to toggle the OEM TiVo remote between skip-to-end, and 30-second skip. In case anyone is interested, press: SELECT | PLAY | SELECT | 3 | 0 | SELECT
    To switch back, just repeat the sequence. Worked like a charm for me...
    As for the H/K DVD50, I haven't been able to find anything in the database - possibly because a code doesn't exist! If anyone finds anything on it, please advise.
