    I think your expectations may be high for what you consider a "fun" experience. The TiVo team is rolling this out as a beta and trying to address issues as they come up. Maybe you should wait for commercial release which may meet your expectations for level of service.

    Point taken. The message I got via TiVo did not indicate it was beta OR that it was not available now. So my expectations got set incorrectly. I have now reset.

    As I don't have Facebook and have no plans to create an account it would be great if people could occasionally post here some of the new items mentioned on Facebook. Thanks for the instructions. I'll have to check to see if I have the app when I get home from work.

    You can set a Tivo IFTTT App to "Send me an email when TiVo adds a new trigger or action"

    Ted seems to have addressed two issues on the FB page 1) you haven't gotten the app yet and 2) there are some problems generating the activation code.

    For 1) TiVo is rolling this out in waves, PM him or Schoop on FB with your TSN to jump to the front of the line. For 2) they are working on it, maybe a load issue.

    So is IFTTT just the first step, for some initial alexa\google home integration, or will there not be any direct integration with google home\alexa?

    And yeah, the rollout of this is weird. Ive gotten no invitation for IFTTT, though i now see the app is there (though getting the 'temporarily unvailable' error for the code), but before any of that i got a message from tivo about the super bowl thing that talked about IFTTT without explaining anything well.

    I have been a long time tivo user on and off ...
    99 percent of the time when they say a new feature is coming to us users ,it takes months,
    this was quick and the auto skip function is a win win

    There are six Applets already available created by TiVo.

    “OK Google, Skip”
    “Alexa, trigger Skip”
    “Send me an email when TiVo adds a new trigger or action”
    “OK Google, find my remote”
    “Alexa, trigger find my remote”
    “Automatically trigger SkipMode”

    You’ll also be able to create your own.
    An example given on the IFTTT app on the TiVo is
    “Pause your TiVo if your smart doorbell rings”

    Working great.. Just wish I could add more than one button push an applet (IE: trigger my shows would push TiVo twice)

    I assume that TiVo is still planning on a native Alexa skill for voice control, right?

    Got the SKIP Applet working. Very Nice. I understand that there is a delay for IFTTT to issue the SKIP command, but not knowing the inner working of Tivo and this App, I was wondering if the Applet could "look ahead" for the SKIP, and thereby have a user-adjustable SKIP (i.e. tell the Applet to SKIP 5 seconds early, thereby eliminating the delay)

    Not a bad idea. TiVo might not want to do this though, due to the variability it introduces. Some people may complain (and call Support) that it's auto-skipping too soon if their program gets clipped.

    Not really, as this could be user-entered into the IFTTT SKIP Applet.

    Not sure I follow. I don't know anything about IFTTT, but doesn't the TiVo box initiate the request that eventually goes out to IFTTT? If so, TiVo controls the workflow, so they would need to make the change, right?

    LITIGATION by advertisers crushed ReplayTV. Seems the courts don't like AUTOMATIC commercial skip.

    I believe so, and shouldn’t require IFTTT once it’s available.

    Received that about 45 minutes ago; no IFTTT app yet. I have forced a couple connections. I noticed that my ~11am connection failed... I wonder if that's why my box is behind.
