    Been over 24 hrs already since the new IFTTT SKIP feature, why is it taking so long to fix the double SKIP bug. And I did't buy a Tivo to sit through 4 seconds of commercials! ;)

    ...IFTTT is a great enhancement to Tivo. I'm sure these minor issues will be worked out. And if the 4 seconds delay is an issue, then just set up kmttg on a Raspberry Pi Zero :)

    I got an invite to the FB group and message through the TiVo Inbox, do I need to do anything to get App (I am looking on Hydra Bolt in Apps-All) or just wait...

    The double skip issue isn't a bug -- the IFTTT applet operates exactly as intended when the issue occurs. Also, the four second delay is merely an ideal figure thrown out by Tivo. In reality, the delay will vary widely. Google 'IFTTT delay' or 'IFTTT slow' and you'll see what I mean. If it were always four seconds, the double skip issue wouldn't even be a problem for most people (unless you REALLY don't like ads... LOL).

    For the record, I have extensive experience with IFTTT and smart home platforms in general. I have also spent countless hours working with IFTTT. As such, I totally agree that IFTTT integration is an awesome addition to Tivo. I just felt it was necessary to point out that IFTTT doesn't really do well with critical tasks that require near-instant execution.

    I'm still waiting for the App on my Tivo, so I haven't been able to give it a try yet. If the delay bothers me, I'll use kmttg Skip on my Pi Zero, or I'll just pick up the remote. Anyway, I am interested in what Tivo is doing with IFTTT.

    Thanks, David! I created an applet for each box last night and everything is working great! It is a great feature. I have joined the facebook group and look forward to it.

    Isn't this a beyond crazy way to do this? Why isn't it just an option we enable in the Tivo (like ReplayTV used to have) to AutoSkip automatically all the time. Sending this through a cloud service is insane, unless you are trying to circumvent a legal issue by not building in the feature?

    I too got the message on my Hydra Roamio this morning, but no app yet. Not like I wanted a Friday distraction from work :eek:, will check again later.

    The app is titled IFTTT. On mine it's down at the bottom of the app list, below Spotify and iHeartRadio.

    But they're rolling it out over time so you might just have to wait your turn to see it.

    Pleasanton,...
    The guys who built this feature are supporting people via a private group on FB right now. All Experience 4/Hydra boxes should have the IFTTT app by now. If not, we’ll have to push it manually. Shoop is staying on top of his FB messages to add TSN’s as they come in.

    NFW am I signing up for a Facebook account for TiVo (or anyone else) so thanks so much to Tony_T for the PDF of info from there.

    On Hydra and no app, no Smart Home apps at all. 503 Page not working message from ITTT.

    So far... not that fun an experience.
