    Oh wow, I hadn't gotten to last night's sitcoms yet and just looked to see that there was no skip on any of the CBS or NBC ones recorded.

    Superstore, TBBT, AP Bio, Young Sheldon, Will & Grace, Mom, and Life in Pieces.

    I think it's the first time that any of these have been w/o skip. I could be wrong, though, as my memory isn't good anymore.

    Also, The Late Show w/Stephen Colbert has no skip again.

    I don't understand how this gets forked up so much now. As others, and I, have mentioned, it doesn't seem to be related to the current update. Is it a Rovi thing?

    I don't think so. Things were pretty solid until the two weeks of the Olympics. Since most programs were repeats, not much recorded.

    I do wonder. Does this affect those with IFTTT and auto-skip? I know little about it but I never see anything about auto-skip failures.

    However, The Tonight Show has the wrong OAD tonight. That's a Rovi bug.

    However, Taken has the wrong OAD and doesn't make it to my TDL. That's a Rovi bug.

    I guess auto-skip fails when old manual skip fails.

    I've heard mention of this 'auto-skip' lately and am intrigued. I'd never heard of that. Is it something with the newest machines?

    I have standard issue Bolts and use the standard issued Tivo remotes. They have skip, of course. But if there is a manipulation to make it auto skip commercials I would be interested to know about that.

    First -> IFTTT Apps for Tivo
    Also, there is talk in the kmttg tread.

    My skip points for The Tonight Show last night are off by 30 seconds. So now we have quality issues too?

    There was no Skipmode on all four NBC comedies that aired between 8-10pm last Thursday 3/1 as well. This makes two weeks in a row of Skip fail. Last week there was also no skip on ABC lineup (except for How to Get Away with Murder), FOX (Gotham) as well as CW (Arrow). This week it was CBS and NBC that failed to receive skip.

    This is becoming a pattern now. Someone is asleep at the wheel on Thursdays.

    Considering auto skip uses the skip flag to detect when to skip, yes, it is affected.

    Here's my OCD showing: the name of this thread. It should be "Skip not available on shows last night". :)

    But then nobody would be able to post about tonight's problems until tomorrow...

    Probably safest just not to mention a particular time. "Skip not available on recorded shows". :D

    It’s tonight and those shows still don’t have skip so it is not available on shows tonight. Still.

    I see your ocd and raise you.

    NBC: total bust in prime time and late night.
    CBS: good including late night.

    Only one show last night (SHIELD), and it's fine.

    Never say never. Last Sunday ABC premiered a new show at 11:35pm called "Sundays with Alec Baldwin". I recorded it (not a 1P). It had no SM and a generic thumbnail art. Overnight it acquired SM and a thumbnail. So, six days to get SM? Amazing.

    I recorded Taken with no issue. I wonder if the wrong date was a cable issue ( I use OTA)
