my gateway had a skip forward button, about 1 min? on blue sky we've found the skip back 15 seconds button, but can't find the skip forward button. i found the fast forward, it's not very accurate, looking for the skip forward. Thanks
Thanks for reaching out! By default, there is no skip forward setting enabled on BlueSky TV devices, just the fast forward. You may be able to find some helpful hints on how to get similar functionality in the thread here, though! Unfortunately this is a feature that is not supported by us.
As someone who has blue sky page up acts a skip forward. By default it's 5 minutes (which is stupid) but if you hit exit three times then 0030 it will switch to 30 seconds with a page up input.
Hope this helps.
My Gateway is set up with jump forward (15 seconds), jump back (7 seconds), megajump (15 min), megajump back (15 min). Are all these supported on Blue Sky? Considering switching.
Hi typhoon44 ,
At this time these aren't supported. As mentioned by dorian246, there is an unsupported workaround with the remote to add skip forward/skip backward. We have heard the feedback from our BlueSky TV users and are investigating options to include such features in future updates.
Wow, that's terrible. Jump forward, jump back is as critical to a PVR as the power button.
I can't believe anyone is buying this product.
Skip forward is 30 seconds and it's the Page Up button. Skip back is 30 seconds and it's the Replay button. Simple...
I am so happy I found this thread!! Thank you dorian246! So happy to have this function again!!!
It works people! Exit 3 times and search 0030 press enter and when you exit and press page up or down it will ff or rw by 30 sec, should work!!!
OMFG!!! Just discovered that it works for On-demand as well!!! So stoked!
Update....you don't have to press exit at all, just enter 0030 and press ok. That should do it! Also, 0015 will ff and rw by 15 seconds! Youre welcome!
Wow! That is terrible! I'm just watching my first late night PVRed football game since just getting Bluesky. The 30 second skip forward was always perfect for between plays, not to mention commercials. At least I can still skip back to rewatch the commercials. Thanks to dorian246 for the cheat. Works great! I'm sure I'll miss my mega skip now, but not nearly as often.
I’m not getting how the exit three times and 0030 works. I hit exit three times and 0030 and I exit out of the recording I am watching and channel 0030 is called up. I’m not quite sure how dorian246 did this.
If the skip forward button (page up button) got reset to 5 mins when you previously successfuly programmed it to 30 seconds, perform the following steps would get it back to 30 seconds:
Exit, exit, exit
use the handy BlueSky MIC. "Skip ahead 12 seconds" or whatever amount of time you choose...works like a charm.
