    No, it's still not there.
    I see Netflix, Prime Video, Amazon Alexa, Get New Experience, YouTube, and Yahoo. It's not under "Add & Manage Apps" either.

    If you have a “Get New Experience” app, I assume that means you’re still on the old non-Hydra version of the software. Isn’t hydra required for IFTTT?

    Linking TIVO to IFTTT enables access to the "scripts" that others have developed and made available. Before considering authoring a script, I would encourage you to review the TIVO-IFTTT applications that have already been published. If you want to author your own scripts (which really is not difficult) , here is a link to the documentation on the process IFTTT . What was by far my favorite TIVO - IFTTT app was the ability to automatically skip ALL commercials on Pre-recorded shows that are "Skip" enabled without having to press "skip" on the remote for each commercial. Unfortunately this feature is not presently working due to a TIVO released update that had the unintended consequence of breaking the application. Efforts are under way to fix it but at the moment it is not working. I don't know what other TIVO-IFTTT apps have been impacted by the recent update and unless you really enjoy being frustrated , I would wait till the smoke clears that the TIVO-IFTTT connections has been restored .

    If you have Facebook, send a PM to David Shoop with your TSN. Tivo has a group there for skip related stuff ... TiVo.SKIP.Innovate

    Only the Auto Skip is currently affected by the last update. All other IFTTT actions are unaffected.

    It was my understanding (from reading David’s update) that all TiVo triggers were affected, but not actions.

    No, Hydra/TE4 is required only for the “Skip Segment Detected” trigger to work, required for the AutoSkip applet. All other triggers and actions are supposedly functional for compatible* TE3 boxes. (I *am* forgetting if IFTTT is available to Premiere boxes.)

    I couldn't remember for sure which is why I specifically referenced 'actions.' Beside, does anybody really use the Content Playing, New OnePass, or Parental Control triggers? Haven't heard anybody complain about those, although that's absolutely certain to change in 3...2...1.... ;)

    Not under TE4, at present, given the scope of what’s broken ... which is more than just AutoSkip. (In case someone uses this site/thread as a reference.)

    I don't have Facebook. How do I get access without FB?

    Then the google form is probably your best bet. Do you have more than one DVR, or any minis? They IFTTT app only needs to appear on one of the devices on your account in order to sign up.

    No, just the one TiVo box.
    Ok, I'll stand by for the IFTTT elves to deliver their gift on my TiVo box.

    Or find somebody you trust with a FB account and have them PM Shoop with your TSN. :)

    AutoSKIP Update from David Shoop on FB:
    Larger message coming tomorrow but here’s the quick and dirty... all issues were fixed. QE (and I) validated everything is working again. I will spin up a google form tomorrow to recruit for testers starting this weekend. Autoskip is fixed, doubleskips have been resolved and the tune to channel action was resolved. Will need your help testing via your applets. Look for more details in the AM

    AutoSKIP Update from David Shoop on FB:

    *** IFTTT Issues Fixed - Looking for Beta Testers ***

    Missing the AutoSKIP function? Missing "Hey Google, Channel #?" Did you shut off AutoSKIP because of the double skip issue? If your answer was yes to any of these questions then we *think* we have the cure. Help us test a new software patch that attempts to resolve all these issues by filling out the Google Form using the link below.

    If you want to start testing by Saturday, please fill out the form by 2:00p PST. We will start mapping TiVo devices to this new Software this afternoon. If you miss the 2:00p cut off we will get you in early next week. Testing will conclude around December 8th and if all goes well this should roll out to everyone around December 12ish.

    BTW, I'm happy to take feedback on how things are going on this Facebook page. I will be monitoring throughout the weekend and beyond.

    Last but not least - THANK YOU to everyone for their interest and participation. We could not do this without you. Thanks for being a part of our quest to deliver the best user experience!

    Note that this is a Google docs form, so no Facebook required.

    I'm just enabling this now (and submitted the form for the update) - I can't believe I didn't know about this functionality yet. When it's enabled, is there a way to get access to the FB group?

    Thanks! I set it up via IFTTT, requested and got access to the group.

    This feature/functionality will be life changing.

    Remember, it won't be working until the next software update around Dec 12th-ish
