Comcast Remote 30 Second Skip

If you are the lucky owner of a Comcast Motorola DCT3412 box, there is a hack available online to program your remote for a 30 second skip for commercials. Its a pretty simple hack that will have you in commercial skip heaven in no time.

  1. Choose an unused or unneeded button on the “silver” remote to be the
    30-second skip command. I used my “A-lock” button, and in retrospect (with two
    kids) that’s probably not the best choice, but I wanted it near the other DVR
    controls. Other choices are the PIP buttons at the bottom, (maybe there’s a hack
    for those too?) or the “help” button (there’s no help either).
  2. Press the “Cable” button at the top of the remote to put it into Cable Box
    control mode.
  3. Press and hold the “Setup” button until the “Cable” button blinks twice.
  4. Type in the code 994. The “Cable” button will blink twice.
  5. Press (do not hold) the “Setup” button.
  6. Type in the code 00173.
  7. Press whatever button you want to map the 30-second skip command to.
