What's wrong with MoviePass? I was thinking of purchasing one.
I was making a joke about the seemingly random SM exclusions by TiVo, comparing to recent MoviePass arbitrary exclusions of certain movies/theaters in some markets. See the TCF discussion beginning here.
I Had it OK on "How to Get Away With Murder". That's the only one of the shows I Watch.. Friday night. I was missing SM on "Taken" And " H 50" . But "Dateline" and "Bluebloods" were OK.
Everything i recorded Thursday and Friday - Arrow, Taken, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. have no SM. We honestly have been spoiled, I used FF for many years to skip commercials and had no issues with it and now when the one button skip fails we get upset (myself included)
AND with the IFTTT autoskip turned on, it's REALLY disruptive when SM is missing for some programs and not others.
So how does SM actually work and get implemented into a recording?
SkipMode was missing on Gotham, Grey's Anatomy, and Scandal. Somehow it was intact for How to Get Away with Murder.
Tried to move an episode to a PC and then back, to see if it would trigger the SkipMode data to appear (a la this method) but unfortunately, it didn't work.
I am joining this skip mode not working on some shows but on other shows tonight I got lethal weapon to skip icon but Chicago med no skip. Was there a update or something no hydra on my TiVo. Be interested to know if this is happening on hydra updated TiVo.
Going down memory lane.
How does skip mode work?
No SM on The Daily Show and The Tonight Show.
Perfect SM on CBS from 8pm through The Late Show.
Yeah, I'm seeing that still with The Daily Show (last night's no skip), and the Late Show (Colbert) had no skip.
It's been sporadic for me, with both of those shows. I cannot think of other, but I'm pretty sure there are a few here and there.
I wonder why this is. I don't really feel like it's the latest update because, IIRC, it started before that.
FWP for sure, but I guess I got spoiled.
ETA - Oops! I lied. Last night's Colbert had skip. Must have been the night before. It's almost like every other (?). My sitcoms have been pretty consistent.
It is nice that this tread can be used to track SM problems. My method: I kill off my prime time weekly. I just delete late night. On CBS, NBC and CC I only save those with SM. I can go back to last November to see how often there's a SM failure. I guess that saying no program is perfect would be the bottom line. At least with computers it's binary. Since people are involved there is a "maybe" option.
NBC: Primetime SM failure on The Blacklist, L&O:SVU, and Chicago P.D..
CBS: SEAL Team, Criminal Minds OK.
ABC: Designated Survivor OK.
Late night CBS,NBC, ABC, CC all OK.
FWIW, I don't think it has anything to do with RC30 vs RC18, Hydra vs gen3, or Comcast. My basic Roamio (set up for OTA) is still on 20.7.4.RC18 and my Pros on Comcast are both on RC30. Same SM issues across the board. They're just dropping the ball more often lately.
Other than the issue last week where nothing recorded on Thursday or Friday had SM I have had no issues with everything getting SM.
No Skipmode for NBC or CBS shows 3/8.
Superstore, AP Bio, Will & Grace, Champions, Life in Pieces
Last week on Thursday I was 0 for 4. This week, same shows, 4 for 4.
Ugh! It makes me crazy when SM is wonky like it has been!
Wed 3/7: American Crime Story = No • X-files = Yes • Full Frontal = Yes • The Daily Show = Yes
Thu 3/8: Will & Grace = No • How to Get Away with Murder = Yes
X-Files were ok too. I crapped out on Blacklist also.
Primetime: S.W.A.T. fails
Late night: Kimmel, Fallon ok. Colbert fails.
It feels like things are getting worse.
No skip on cbs or nbc comedies. Skip ok in daily show. I never get skip on CW but that’s because the CC on that channel is always messed up.
