    Bad closed captioning seems the likely culprit as that’s where the skip points are marked. It is odd that you’d have that same problem across all the channels though unless it was a Comcast problem.

    Longshot, but do you have any recordings left in your recently deleted folder from before the issue started? You could restore one and see if skip works on it.

    Conspiracy theory that TiVo is trying to break mine so I will buy a new one.

    I recovered an episode of Stumptown from October 2nd where I KNOW it worked then. After recovery, waited about 5 minutes and checked. No green tag and not group skip.

    Even in the Deleted Recordings folder there will be a green SM icon.

    I just looked thru the deleted folder and there are NO green SM icons. It is if the feature has been completely turned off.

    That may be true. Call TiVo, or use Twitter, and complain.

    Something’s definitely wrong there. I’d give TiVo a call.

    My 758 4-tuner with matching SV has SM ICON throughout the entire NPL and also the 'recently deleted'. It's connected 5 - 6 times in the past 10-15 days but as I mentioned 'NO CableCard'. I didn't TiVo Stumptown S1 Episode 2 on my Roamio so I can't check that. It might be interesting if you mention the CableSystem and your location, reach out to someone with a 758 4-tuner Elite and compare a couple evenings recordings. My 4-tuner Elite hasn't had a CableCARD for close to 3 years.

    This interests me because I was planning on 'gifting' to a friend in NOVA who uses FiOS and it would do well for him 'IF' it was/is still a 'full-feature' machine with SKIP available.

    Post back TiVo comments.

    *** I took a chance for a quick CHAT and was told it should function as it has in the past 3 years!!

    Try a reboot?

    I record NCIS and skip has been there almost always. If you want auto-skip, I don't think its available on any but Bolt.
