* [How To] Add 30-Second Skip Button
Instead of using fast forward, easily and fastly skip by commercials with a 30-second skip button.
The following technique can be used to map an unused or unneeded button on the remote to the 30-second skip command. A good choice is the 'A/Lock' button since many users don't need that function; you can feel both the '15-second-back' and '30-second-skip' buttons with one finger and move between them without looking.
* [How To] Add Quick Music Channels List Button
Displays a list of the digital music channels to browse. It's the same list shown by using 'Quick Menu/Find Shows/Music'.
* [How To] Add A Dedicated STB Mute/Un-mute
The following technique can be used to map an unused or unneeded button on the remote to the dedicated STB mute/un-mute command. Since the remote's mute button often controls the TV's or HT receiver's mute command, this allows you to re-enable the sound if the box has muted itself. It's also useful for muting sound without displaying/showing closed captions on screen.
More customization includes...
* Key Remapping (Key-Mover)
Remapping a key allows you to move a key to a more convenient location, copy a key from another device, or add a new function to a key. One-For-All remotes call this feature Key-Mover.
* Using a Shifted Key
A Shifted key is a second code stored on a key. It is access by pressing and releasing the "Setup" key, then pressing the desired key. The "Setup" key acts like the Shift key on a keyboard. A common use is to put the DVR's own Mute code as a shifted Mute. A normal press of the Mute key will mute/un-mute your audio device (TV or amplifier), but the shifted-Mute will mute or un-mute the DVR.
* Add a Macro Button
A "macro" can also be created that will simulate hitting a series of buttons from the single press of a button.
15 buttons can be programmed to each macro. ex: 5 channel up + 10 channel down. Macros cannot be combined, and the original function for a button is kept when used inside a macro.
* OPS Reset
This reset will delete all macros and keymoves, including volume and channel locks. It will not reset device codes.
