    The guide on my Roamio Pro (Hydra) hadn't updated in a few days so I checked and saw it said Pending Restart so I forced it and was updated from RC4 (I think?) to RC8. I apologize if this has been mentioned already but I went back through several pages and saw no mention of it and tried to search too. Has anyone listed the release notes or know what's changed? Thanks! :)

    It's normal for guide updates and Mini connections to be blocked by a "Pending", you seem to be the first to report/notice it. Thanks.

    I thought at first I noticed a change.... pressing play on a folder with 1 episode would now play in one click not two. It worked once but then it didn't again so now I'm not sure?

    I always use play for folders with one episode of a series as I hardly ever keep shows I’ve watched. What doesn’t work is a folder with a movie or one off show in it. Is that what you meant?

    Yes that too. But for me (with episode strip on) it was always making me click twice. Hitting play on the title would expand to see the episode strip then I would have to click play again to get the episode to play. Now it seems to be working correctly regardless of the number of episodes in the folder. I do not have any movies recorded right now to test that.

    Also it seems the episodes in the episode strip are always displayed in the correct order now. Before if there was alot I would have to loop around and hitting play wouldn't always play the oldest episode first.

    I found out on FB the major new feature of this release is auto skip for everyone no IFTTT needed. I didn't notice a diff because I already had been using it thru IFTTT anyways.

    It’s been there but it’s appearance has been inconsistent. Seems a bit buggy.

    Per David Shoop (@tiv0_Shoop), you’ll want to remove any AutoSkip applets from IFTTT to avoid double-skipping:

    Lil’ bit, yeah. I’m looking to dig my one TE4 box out of storage to try it out, but was hoping others could confirm it and save me the time.

    I am in RC8 and am not getting autoskip. I replied to Schoop's Facebook reply with this info. Will follow up here if I get a response.

    I imagine there has to be a setting buried in the menus somewhere that was defaulted to off. They can't simply turn on auto-skip without telling people and without a settings toggle. The setting would have to default to off.

    Good insight, though 1 demerit to Shoop if so, for not communicating this info.

    User Prefences? Where else to look?

    I did look through the prefs and didn't find anything.

    It *would* seem insane not to give the customer control. Does holding ‘D’ or ‘Skip’ toggle AutoSkip? (That’d be better than a preference buried in the menu, IMO.)

    Is anything displayed on the screen when a Skip point is encountered?

    Agreed but considering that it isn't working yet maybe there is some miscommunication from the Facebook group and there is more needed than RC8 like a server side switch before the autoskip feature is available.
