    A few months back I saw a post here about resetting the (3rd gen, IIRC) user interface without having to reboot the Tivo. I tried it back then and it brought back my progress bars without a reboot. Sweet!

    Of course, now I've totally forgotten the magic sequence. Can someone post it again, please? Thanks.

    oh, from tivo central.. darn.. I have a not reproducible case of seeing the UI hang on my Roamio Pro.. if I go into the list of shows and QUICKLY try to connect to my P4, the UI will just freeze.. I've seen it at LEAST tens of times, just not on demand reproducible.. The first couple of times I saw it, I rebooted... Then I realized I could just wait and it will eventually time out to live TV.

    Even trying to tell it to play a show (i.e. from a phone) doesn't do anything for quite a while (the same timeout amount), then it'll start playing the show.

    What is SM? Other than the sexual usage which I assume is not the usage here.

    There are many abbreviations used around here. Check my signature for a link that describes many of them.

    Oh, so it's not just me? Thursday is busiest day for my DVR and over half the shows I record did not have Skipmode

    It was missing on:
    Arrow
    Grey's Anatomy
    Scandal
    How to Get Away with Murder
    Superstore
    AP Bio
    Will & Grace

    In fact, the only shows that had skip almost immediately were Life in Pieces and Top Chef.

    I reported the six shows for which I was missing SM via the survey. Not sure they worked as when I hit "Next", it took me to the main tivo.com page with no acknowledgement of the report.

    Same here for Gotham and Grey's Anatomy, but wait should I have gotten a new Arrow and Supernatural?!?! My last recordings for those 2 were 2/8.

    Interesting so I didn't see anything in the History for either show so would seem they were not in my guide data (or the data for them wasn't correct in some way). I see both are supposed to be shown tonight at 8pm and 9pm here, but they weren't checked to record so I manually set them to record.

    Is the guide tor 03/01 still available on your TiVo? Sounds as if there may have been a local preemption.

    I just looked at mine and the "Arrow" episode has an OAD of 2/27/18, which is of course wrong.

    I also have this exact issue, it drives me nuts, Hopefully RC30 will fix it. It hasn't happened since installing RC30, fingers crossed.

    Was this the one that came out a few days ago? For some reason I don't remember, I went into network settings or somewhere else (actually I think it was the 'test connection' UI when the Tivo thought I wasn't connected), and saw pending restart.. I restarted and didn't watch it absolutely every second, but never actually saw an update install.. it seemed to take the same speed as any other regular reboot.
