How to Put the 30 Second Skip on a Time Warner Remote

By J. Anthony Cooley

Programming a Time Warner DVR remote to skip ahead 30 seconds allows you fast-forward faster past unwanted segments in recorded programs, including commercials. The process for programming a Time Warner remote to skip ahead 30 seconds does not take any technical knowledge and only takes a couple minutes to complete.

Step 1

Press the "Cable" button on the remote so the remote knows to program cable functions.

Step 2

Press and hold the "Setup" button until the "Cable" button blinks twice.

Step 3

Enter the code "994" the using the numeric keypad on the remote. The "Cable" button blinks twice.

Step 4

Press the "Setup" button, and then type in the code "00173."

Step 5

Press the button you want to assign the "30-second Skip" command to. Either of the "A," "B" and "C" buttons are good choices since they are blank buttons that do not serve any functions.
