    It might be a function of what time the show airs. TiVo says they only currently provide the service for shows that air between 4 PM and Midnight (although it actually extends to 12:30 AM for late night talk shows on ABC, CBS and NBC.)

    In my case, we record a lot of Modern Family episodes. The ones on ABC and USA usually have skip mode, but of course, the ones on two local stations do not.

    I see commercials all the time on HBO. They are constantly advertising other HBO shows. Even if I stream an HBO program from their app, I need to get past a commercial at the beginning. That advertises another one of their shows.

    Good thought. That said, L&O:SVU on USAHD has been recording since 4AM ET here, and only the 7AM, 9AM and 10AM showings are labeled "skip". Still can't discern a pattern.

    I'm still hoping to see skipmode on the iOS app. Would be an awesome addition.

    I've been collecting NCIS:LA on USA. I can't detect a pattern except new ones have SM. Nothing before season 7, and S7 is only 20%.

    Another good thought, but not the case with SVU. On the current list, I see S2 and S3 episodes that have it, and s16 episodes that don't.

    As an aside, I just noticed we have s1e1 on the list (not skippable, BTW). Didn't realize the show's been on since '99!

    I see that like NCIS, USA doesn't repeat the episodes in order. I have a TiVo that has a 3TB drive, so I just set it to record everything. Maybe some duplicates will have SM.

    I don't mind those. I have discovered many good shows before because of them

    We love the skip mode as well; I had no idea it would be so awesome. Thank You Tivo!!
