    D'oh! Not seeing it in 60607. You're getting the green SKIP icon?

    I'm in the SF area and just got Skip Mode on previously recorded programs on my Roamio after performing an update. I like it!

    Here in DC, just got Quick Mode, and the Channel Icons.

    LOVE IT! Looks great on my Roamio Pro!

    Thanks, TiVo!

    It's good to live near Tivo HQ!

    I updated my Pro and Mini early this morning.

    The problem with the audio taking ~5 seconds to engage after starting a video seems fixed. BTW, I use Dolby Digital.

    Channel logos on my Pro look great.

    Only quibble, slide Remote keyboard still does not work with Youtube (like it used to).

    Overall, good job Tivo!

    For me the audio and video drop out for about a second and a half when going into TiVo Central from full screen video. When going back to full screen it drops out for about 1/2 second. In both cases the audio stays Dolby the entire time.

    It looks like TiVo tries to compensate by pausing the video briefly, but it's not long enough to prevent missing dialog at times when going in and out of menus (especially into), so I have to remember to pause any time I switch between menus and full screen.

    This is how it's always been and the new update doesn't change anything. Going in and out of the guide doesn't have this problem.

    You got "Skip Mode" or "Quick Mode"? I thought Margret said the Skip Mode wouldn't go live on Roamios in the test markets till later this week. Did you get another update after the initial software update that enabled this?

    I'm in Chicago, no Skip Mode on the new software so far for me.

    Force a connection and it will pop up. I'm in Evanston and just needed the connection this evening to get all my old recordings to start showing Skip Mode. It's a pretty cool feature!

    I've forced about 20 times tonight and I'm not getting any additional updates. Just the one this morning. I rebooted a couple times as well. Hmmmm

    I found what seems like a change. I had paused a recording I was playing while at TiVo Central. After 15 minutes it timed out and dropped to live tv.

    I got the update late this afternoon after connecting to the service and I did not get anything at all for tune to HD. It is completely missing in action.

    Another sad thing is about a third of my line up is missing channel icons so there is sections of the guide where there is only one icon and the rest are just script. Looks really dumb. I can not see why Tribune never added icons for a lot of the HD channels as they have them on the SD channels.

    So since I have two Premieres and we are not getting Quickmode or Skipmode, I basically did not get much of an update.

    Note: While typing this I just heard a audio drop out on FX HD so it appears that issue is not fixed.

    I'm surprised no one mentioned the wasted empty space to the left on the channel number/icon on the guide. Is there a particular reason why it's not shifted over more? Looks weird, like it's "indented". :thumbsdown:

    Yep


    Don't have it on everything, though. I have all 8 eps of The Walking Dead from this season and only the first four have it, not the most recent four. Other newer shows do have it, like recordings from last night and tonight.

    ^^^ agree ^^^

    And, similarly, I'd also love to have a web form where we could provide feedback on OnePass metadata errors (with the assumption that the feedback would result in fixes).

    I've had a couple dropouts in an episode of Legends on TNT. One section I could rewind and playback several times and it would dropout and then not dropout. Sometimes it would play fine for about 2-3 times but then dropout again. I'm going to see if I can isolate and cut out the section and maybe see if TiVo can do something with it.

    I saw that right away, don't understand what that's all about, but it looks ridiculous, not to mention it's a waste of space as you've noted.

    I'm feeding audio to my receiver via Toslink cable and using component cables for the video (no HDMI on the receiver). I have the preview window disabled and was getting sound effects in the TiVio HD menus before the update (I was aware that TiVo could not send sound effects with Dolby Digital enabled). The difference after the update is that all the HD menus stay in Dolby Digital mode now.

    If you aren't seeing the HD channel notification on your SD channels, please...

    1. Make two more connections to the TiVo Service. Does it work now? If not...

    2. Repeat Guided Setup. Does it work now?

    Thanks Margaret! Wish more of the Tivo employees would be more active here.

    I hope you took note of the left indentation of channel number/logo on the guide. ;)
