    Anyone else have Auto Skip stop working. Most show don't even show they are set for Skip, but the ones that do don't auto skip or even skip with the button.
    Not sure how to fix it or if Tivo just gave up on it.

    Guide data is soooo bad now, I can't remember the last time auto-skip worked. But manual skip (30 second) still does for me using my Bolt.

    There are certainly plenty of times when popular shows shown during primetime on the major networks, don't have the skip data, but I'd say the data is there way over 50% of the time....at least for the shows I watch.

    So far so good for me.... auto skip is on most popular network shows but I must say that it is far from perfect.... a good 25% are missing the feature.

    Reboot the Tivo...it will NOT fix this for shows already recorded, but should fix it going forward. This happens to me & others here & for some (weird) reason, rebooting does the trick.

    Tried rebooting. The Auto Skip icon shows next to the recording, but it never works, either automatically or manually.

    Perhaps you missed the part in bold.

    No, these are shows that recorded after the reboot. Multiple shows on different channels, all marked as Skip, but it does not skip using Skip button or Auto.
