    Yeah Thanks. After all that promotion and hype, SKIP didn't even appear. Shocker. Not Surprised AT ALL. On a positive note, IFTTT works perfectly with any shows with SKIP I just wish it was a bit faster (snappier)

    Thanks.. I see the app in my Bolt, so I may try the IFTTT..not sure.. for now, I get SKIP, but it would be easier or faster with IFTTT?

    I waited for Skip to appear on the game, but it wasn't until after I deleted it that Skip actually kicked in (it's 1 AM here). I recovered the recording and it worked.

    I think there has been instances of the GUI bug happening unrelated to standby. Such as the DVR being on for hours and it happens. Either way, I wish they'd just fix it.

    On another note, no problem with getting SkipMode for the Super Bowl on my Roamio Pro.

    I see SM icon next to Super Bowl and one after The Tonight Show, which didn't start until after midnight EST. Someone stayed up late for that.

    Started to reply, good thing I decided to read the rest of the thread first. B-) I was indeed still referring to Dish, and that's why I said this is a tactic that won't work against TiVo. Not that I don't expect the broadcasters to try and find SOMETHING, but they don't have contract negotiations to use as a stick. I still think as long as the user sets it up, and not TiVo, then legally everything's peaches and cream. But who knows, there might be a judge with a kid in a very expensive college that the broadcasters could find.

    You're right and I should have answered @Mikeguy more precisely. You only need the dot or mini if you want to use voice commands as triggers to control the TiVo via IFTTT. The AutoSkip trigger is independent of that.

    Recorded Super Bowl on Bolt+ last night. Skip feature using ''D" button to go only to commercials while skipping the game worked perfectly this morning. Love it. Thanks TiVo.

    Did not have skip when I went to bed around midnight ET. Was there when I woke up.

    I had padded a LOT and stopped the recording when the game ended. I wonder if that affects the skip load? Does the Tivo not know it is done when I stopped the recording?

    GameSKIP worked great, and thanks to the 30sec Advance on the Remote, I was also able to SKIP the commercials I viewed Live :)

    Game skip and IFTTT work fine on my Roamio base model. I never realized my remote could make noises until I tried the "find my remote" thing. Must say: the tones are pretty puny -- room had better be pretty quiet.

    Got it now, thanks. And so the 5 commercial-skip options (not including kmttg) are: (1) KISS: use the remote and your finger, using ff or the 30-second skip button (what a wonderful button command that has been! :) ); (2) current SkipMode, using the remote to press the D/channel-up/skip button; (3) current SkipMode under Gen4, using the remote to press the voice button and then giving a skip voice command; (4) SkipMode in conjunction with an Alexa or Google device along with IFTTT (TiVo is working on this--the Alexa option seemingly already is there), using a skip voice command in place of remote button press; and (5) AutoSkip, using IFTTT.

    Query: And so what if you actually want to watch the commercials after having turned the AutoSkip functionality on? Use rewind on the remote to back up, being careful to not go back into the program which thereby would trigger the skip point and AutoSkip again?

    Only (5) does not require user intervention to SKIP, and is my favorite :) (and to view the commercials with (5), AFAIK, you would need to open the IFTTT App at IFTTT.com (or the smartphone app) and turn the Applet OFF)

    Worked for me on Gen 3 Roamio, nice. Did not show up until today, did not happen within a few hours of when the game ended though I can't say exactly when it DID happen. Nice as I do want to watch the commercials. I fast forwarded through most of the game (though it WAS an exciting game). Just glad New England lost, I used to dislike Dallas and the California teams (other than the old Oakland Raiders with Stabler), now I root for ANYONE playing New England to beat them.

    "VOX Remote," to be perhaps overly clear.
