why the hell is skipping to the end "too important to lose"?! easily skipping through commercials seems much more valuable

    it is much more valuable because sometimes you get half way through a program fast forwarding just to see if it is worth watching. if at the thirty minute mark you decide that the program is worth watching then you dont have to rewind or fast forward to get back to the beginning. also the thirty second skip is not as reliable to stop right at the start of the program after commercial. also if you decide to delete program early just hit the advance key once, then list and it will automatically ask if you want program deleted. 2-3 less steps than if you dont have that feature.

      You don't need to skip to the end to delete.
      Hit back, then arrow down to select "delete", then ok
      Or, if you want less clicks, back, clear, ok...
