Also my SKIP seems to be functioning correctly now. Thanks to all that posted.
I suppose the folks that are creating the SKIP markers also had to transition to Rovi data and that took a few days.
If I recall correctly, the skip mode marking was supposed to be primarily automated, based on cc data, and only reviewed / fine-tuned only where necessary by exception by actual humans.
I haven't had skip for 4 days now, how long should I wait before I all CS?

Based on most of the posts in this forum, plus my own anecdotal experience (I have three working TiVos), it was amazingly painless and smooth. I was prepared for disaster, even going so far as to take pics of all my SPs, WL, etc.
Didn't have a single problem. There were a few extra recordings, mainly Wishlist, that it didn't realize were repeats. That's it. Not one single missed recording.
Oh, and I have Skip too. While I feel bad for those who don't, I believe the word "disaster" is perhaps a little dramatic, eh?
I thought it was 100% human? They use the captions as a universal marking point, to handle different commercial gaps on different providers. But originally and totally marked by people.
I don't see how skip mode could be human because when the skip mode initially rolled out It was working on a bunch of recordings i had that were like 2 years old.
I am on Comcast San Francisco Bay Area and skip mode hasn't been working for me since Friday.
Because it works based on the captions. And the captions are the same on a show aired now, as when it originally aired (usually).
So if a show is aired on a channel that has Skip Mode coverage, it gets "Skip". Even if it's a repeat. And it then would apply to your older recording.
Clear as mud?
It was also clear that TiVo had been creating SkipMode data for quite a long time before they made it public. So they had a large amount of recordings available.
My guess is about a year now.
The skip data includes a reference to the source TiVo that generated it. (the TSN) So I'm guessing that whatever verification/correction is done happens on an actual TiVo running a special version of the software.
Hmm, I hadn't heard that. How is that known?
The Bolt was released 11 months ago and I am nearly 100% sure it was Beta tested including the SkipMode feature. Even if the Beta testing was only 1 month (which is highly unlikely) they have a years worth of SkipData at this time. SkipMode included reruns so there could be shows from allot longer ago then that with Skip Data.
Anyone still not getting skip try this workaround, it worked for me.
I'm getting skip mode on Fox and NBC. CBS A&E AMC & discovery channel shows are all missing skip
Fear of Walking Dead and Talking Dead from this past Sunday both had SKIP, so AMC recordings are getting SKIP for me. Also, all my recent CBS and Discovery Channel recordings have SKIP too. So SKIP seems to be fully functional again for me again.
I think I'm still seeing it on _fewer_ shows than before, but yeah, it does seem to be coming back more..
though remember, even before the changeover, sometimes you wouldn't see the icon but it still WOULD have skip... (and no, this didn't seem to be a "try it exactly when it realized it had skip data", since the icon would never be added in some cases..)
I don't have skip mode on any new recordings since last Thursday or Friday. I am unsure if I am on Rovi guide data or not, but it is annoying.
I am pretty much in the same boat as the post right above me. Going to reboot my TiVo and hope it fixes it. I also tried the trick listed above about deleting and recovering to no avail. Today 0 skip recordings worked for me including NBC. I noticed in my TiVo messages folder today there was a new message about Guide Service not working for a couple of hours or a couple of days I think it said I can't remember
It turns out I had an update pending. Before rebooting I went into network settings and tried connecting to TiVo service at which point at the very last step of disconnecting I got an error s01. message which took me to another screen which advised I reboot. After rebooting I got "show info has run out" (M60) message. Again now Im attempting to connect to TiVo service and its slowly loading info. Hopefully all will be good and skip mode will return. I've never received these error messages before.
Loading info got to 99%, then took another ten minutes to get to %100 but finally finished. I then got a new message that said a bunch of channels were deleted and added. Now there's a bunch of new channels on my Guide I need to delete- I only like to show HD channels. hassle. My to do list is now missing a bunch of shows. I'm not sure how many but I know US Open tennis was scheduled to record at 10 a.m. this morning as part of a one pass and its now removed from to do list.
I don't have the new guide yet, but I'm missing SM on mostly CBS shows. No SM on "Y&R" since last Thursday. No SM on "Zoo" last night or "60 Min" last Sunday. As to "Y&R", if you wait untill after 4pm central, some station in the eastern TZ delay to 4pm, and that's when it get SM. At least that's the was it was until last Thursday.
