Advertisements FYI... Copied from the TiVo.IFTTT.Innovate Facebook group, with permission from David Shoop -- provided the fact that it is a BETA feature is emphasized, and that the only support for the feature is via the TiVo.IFTTT.Innovate Facebook group. ("TiVo Support knows nothing about it.") =================================== ***NEW BETA FEATURE – CHAPTERING*** I mentioned the other day that we may try something new that we call “chaptering”. Well, the time has come to test it out! Important Information 1. BETA test - please note that this is a BETA test. It might work, it might not. 2. IMPACT – There should NOT be any impact to the SKIP functionality 3. SUPPORT - The only support for the feature is right here in this group. Please do not call customer support. What is Chaptering Using our SKIP technology, we will create additional SKIP points in a recording that allow you to SKIP from one interesting point to the next; e.g. skip to Curry drop a 3pt for down town! Use the SKIP key to skip to the next interesting point and SKIP over a commercial breaks. The idea is to get you to the interesting points of the content without having to watch the entire recording. Kind cool, right? Where will Chaptering be Available? We are going to add chaptering to the remaining NBA and NHL finals. The specific games and chaptering events are outlined below. We hope to do this for all games listed but make no guarantees it will work. How Do I get Chaptering? If you have a TiVo that shows you SKIP icons, your half way there. The other half is to set a recording for any/all the NHL or NBA final games. One of the easiest ways to record all events is to create a OnePass for NBA finals and Stanley Cup Playoffs, we call that SportsPass. Then Approximately 10min after the game/recording is complete the SKIP icon should appear. How do I use chaptering? During playback of the recording, you should be able to SKIP to any chapter point or SKIP over the commercials. Use the SKIP/D key to skip to the next interesting point and SKIP over a commercial breaks. You can also use the Channel up or Down key to move forward and backward between these SKIP/chaptering points.

We hope it works and you guys like it. Leave us comments below and let us know what you think… we’re listening. =================================== Followup 1: Hidden Easter egg. If you recorded the first game of Dubs v Cavs you should see SKIP on the content. Start viewing and press skip to take you to the best plays. Followup 2: No special device or UI. Press the skip (ch up/down, d key) to skip to each chapter during playback. Regarding SNL, they are not running new episodes just yet. We did run a test on last weeks show and it was awesome!
