    If you don't have the IFTTT app showing in your apps on your Tivo, then you will have to wait until it shows up. On the FB page there are several Tivo support people enabling the app feature to those who them a private message. If you don't want to join FB then I would PM Tivo_Ted and give him your TSN. If you have the IFTTT app and when you select it and get the activation code then go to your IFTTT account and select the Tivo Service to activate it. If you get a message that that activation number temporarily not available, then back out and retry until you get the activation code. I had better luck setting the IFTTT up on website instead of using a phone IFTTT app.

    Ditto. I never used ReplayTV's Commercial Advance auto-skipping because the markers were unreliable, but this is promising.

    So I was able to create a work around to get to my shows using IFFFT and Stringify... Not super easy to get working but now if I say "Alexa, tell stringify Shows" it goes to my shows

    Well I got the app after sending a PM. Now, I've been trying for 20+ minutes to get an activation code.

    Any hot tips for get a code to spit out of this app? Or are they just having server issues?

    Unfollow the group. You can still go in and look at the posts but it won’t take over your feed.

    Ok, I got the app and set it up for the auto skip. But it does nothing. The app says it has never run. What am I not doing that causes the app not to run? I have a Bolt running the non-hydra operating system. It has been over 24 hours since I set it up. I thought if you got the code the function would work.

    Will there ever be a way to set up auto-skip without signing up for another service? For those who don't want to create an account.

    Currently, SkipMode has an on-screen pop-up of sorts when commercial breaks hit. This can be annoying when watching regular programming as it may show up during the show, or during the commercials if I want to watch commercials during a recorded program.
    Will this still be the case during the Super Bowl? That is, even if it's reversed, allowing us to skip to the commercials, will we be seeing the "Press D to Skip and resume show" during game play? Say, if we have to skip back during the game, will it be popping up until we hit clear? Assume someone is watching the game after it's over.

    By the way, is there any news as to when the GUI problems are going to be fixed for gen3? Multiple times a month, I have to do Thumbs Down, Thumbs Up, Play, Play to fix the interface.

    That's the issue.

    You can use other triggers like Google Assistant or Alexa/Echo. Nothing for Siri yet.

    In the IFTTT apps on your phone/device just start a new applet from scratch, using Google Assistant or Alexa as the "This" and the TiVo as the "That."

    Its asks which TiVo to use and I'm having issues there but it looks like that's affecting only a few people.

    Instructions for setting up a second TiVo box with "Automatically trigger SkipMode"
    1. Login to IFTTT.
    2. Select "My Applets".
    3. Under "Applets", select the "New Applet" button.
    4. Select the blue text "+ this".
    5. Search for and select the "TiVo" service.
    6. Select "SKIP segment detected".
    7. Select your second TiVo box and then "Create trigger".
    8. Select the blue text "+ that".
    9. Search for and select the "TiVo" service.
    10. Select "Send remote control key".
    11. Select your second TiVo box, "D BUTTON", and "Create action".
    12. Change the text displayed in the box to what you want the Applet named.
    13. You probably want to turn off "Receive notifications when this Applet runs".
    14. Select the "Finish" button.

    Don't use Standby and disable power-saving modes until TiVo fixes the bug.

    I recommend editing the Applet after its creation to rename it with a label indicating the box with which it is associated. I also deleted the original Applet and recreated it from scratch, so that each Applet would be named for its associated box.

    LOL, this could actually get me to finally purchase an Amazon Alexa device--finally a real purpose for it, other than hearing the weather. ;)

    Pardon my ignorance (no smart home equipment here) but, absent other equipment, will this function with an Amazon Dot alone, or would it require an Echo Plus with its built-in smart home hub?

    This will work with an Echo dot alone.
