    I still wonder why TiVo is ok with adding this via IFTTT but not directly. The box obviously knows when it hits a skip point why not just do it on the box itself? This is all just legal showmanship at this point.

    Any former ReplayTV customer would offer that it's more than show.

    Doesn't Dish have autoskip of some kind?

    Dish's autoskip does come on for some time after the broadcast. It originally was the next day but I think it got extended. This was due to the settlement of the lawsuits Dish faced from broadcasters after autohop was first introduced

    It is actually more restricted than I thought:

    Did the Alexa update add the autoskip trigger to gen 3? Haven't had a chance to test it myself yet.

    Heh, even if I’m not using AutoSkip, I think I’ll setup an applet to post a message to the screen to let me know if/when it starts working.
