New Contour 2 Remote does not have instant buttons
I recently added a Contour 2 guest box. I noticed the new remote does not have instant replay and instant fast forward buttons with arrows. Can you please let me know if there is a command for these functions or why they are no longer available?
I remember seeing a post in this Forum maybe a year ago that someone reprogrammed a Contour 2 remote to change the skip forward and back times. Sorry I don't remember exactly when it was or the type of remote, but it was definitely a Contour 2. It might be worth your time to do a search for how to do that. If you find that post or instructions on some other website and are able to successfully change the skip times, please post how you did it
My Controur 2, XR11-RF works great...30sec fwd and 15sec back. I'm not sure if replacing the 0030 with say a different set would change anything. It might be a fixed set of values....looks like user Nomisj found the fix too, even working on a different Remote.
Thanks, ekhawaii. I haven't seen you around lately. It's good to see you're surviving 2020. Yes, that was the post that I remembered seeing where someone was able to reprogram their Contour 2 DVR fast forward and back functions for 30 seconds and 15 seconds. I had forgotten that it was actually modifying settings on the DVR and not the remote.
Thank you all. This has been very helpful. FF and RR functions using page up or down keys can be changed by pushing Exit 3 times, followed by 0030 (for 30 seconds or 0500 for 5 minutes). I assume this format can be used for any skip time but shorter intervals seem less accurate based on time stamp on screen.
