I don't think you want to post your personal info (TiVo TSN) to a public forum.
I recommend deleting your post, here: Big Game Sunday & IFTTT tests
.... and then PM'ing Ted or David the TSN info (via TCF's "Start a Conversation" mechanism).
Ted's and David's TCF IDs are posted here.
Waves?? C'mon... apps should be self-service on-demand. Imagine if the Google Play store worked like that.
Echos are cool for parties. Pair it with a bluetooth speaker and play Amazon music on demand by voice.
And so, this new methodology (somehow) avoids the legal (whatever that might be) or other issue, through a going out and then back again system, which issue current SkipMode seemingly does not have? An automatic system has an issue whereas a semi-automatic system requiring a finger press or external (automated) software application avoids it?
Cool, thanks--will have to wait for the next Dot sale. Finally, an excuse to buy one: a fully automatic SkipMode plus weather reports.
It basically comes down to who did the skipping. When Replay did the skipping, they got smacked down. When the user does the skipping, that's the user's choice and as much as they wish otherwise, broadcasters can't do a thing about it if the user chooses to skip commercials. If the user does so by pressing a button on the remote or by essentially running a script, as long as the user did it, all's good. Dish's Hopper did much the same as Replay, and the channels basically neutered it. Now the users can choose autoskip, but not until a number of days after the airing. This is a tactic that won't work with TiVo though, as TiVo isn't broadcasting anything so there's no contract renegotiation going on every three years.
IME shortly after the recording ends, often the same night. Certainly by the next morning for a tagged program.
IME, typically within 2-3, or 5, minutes after the show's end.
I use standby quote often to avoid my recordings getting interrupted by EAS tests.
It's been months. I would have thought they would fix it by now. Then again, they haven't fixed the guide for GSN after 17 months, so maybe I should give up hope of anything getting done.
If you go to My Shows and wait there, the SKIP tags should load for the Super Bowl
Stile99 is talking about Dish autohop autoskip. It is not activated until 3-7 days after airing on the locals now due to Dish’s retransmission consent agreements. If dish loses access to a local channel then autohop is available at midnight like it used to be, if the dish customer still has access to the lost local via an antenna on the Hoppers.
Has not appeared yet here in Austin. The game is finished recording and the SKIP icon has not appeared. A second recording for This Is Us began after the Super Bowl recording ended and it's actually recording the end of the game and post game. This second recording is padded way out to be sure to get the TV show so it is not yet finished.
I just heard from someone in Texas that theirs loaded. You have to stay on My Shows in order to force the SKIP tags to load faster
Hopefully unrelated, but my Roamio Pro began cyclical reboots a few minutes after stopping the Super Bowl recording. 3 and counting.
Make that 4.
(Disconnected Pro from the network and it didn't reboot a 5th time.)
(Other Roamio Pro was also unstable after the SB recording completed. Disconnecting from network also stabilized it.)
(Both Roamio Pros again networked and seemingly OK.)
Unless I've missed something, the Dot (and Google devices) don't have anything to do with AutoSkip; that's just IFTTT.
Will do thanks.
Apparently the EAS tests here by Comcast don't appear to cause an issue (or we're never recording when they happen).
Got the IFTTT app connected, recorded the Super Bowl and got the Auto-Skip to go right to the commercials, avoiding the game. SLICK, like 'budder' ;-)
