    Has anyone noticed that skip mode is no longer available on any recorded shows since a few days ago ?

    My Roamio OTA has skip mode listed on all shows recorded last night, but I have not played them yet. I have noticed a few shows recently where skip mode did not work when I played them. All prime time network shows. One was a 1/2 hour after I had recorded it.

    Be aware that there is some bug where the Skip mode icon is missing on the My Shows entry, but if you select the show and drill deeper, the Skip mode actually is there and works. This is sometimes confused with Skip mode being missing, when it is just the icon that is missing.

    I rebooted my Roamio OTA, made sure network settings are working and able to connect to the internet.
    None of my network channel (abc, cbs, fox, nbc) shows recorded on prime time show the skip mode icon next to the NEW icon next to the show name .
    I select any show, start playback and then press D and nothing happens. A week ago most of them had the skipmode feature, even some older shows that had skip mode no longer have it.

    I saw some other posts after my earlier post. It seems other people are seeing this issue also and TiVo support says they are aware and working on it.

    Skip mode disappeared.

    I often have the opposite problem. The Skip Mode icon is there, but pushing the green D button does not result in a skip.

    I also have this problem, and it is getting worse. (Skip Mode icon is present, but green button does nothing)

    On Wed, NBC prime time shows, none had SM. I attributed to the bad weather on the east coast.

    True. Stupid school closings. Blacklist ok, L&O:SVU and Chicago P.D. were missing. Criminal Minds on CBS was OK also.
