    Was/Is the OAD correct? And you have SM?

    Even tvguide.com had the information correct.

    I checked my Premiere which is set for OTA and cable. Both entries are wrong. It was wrong on tvguide.com but is fixed now. It was always right on Nielsen.

    this is interesting....I noticed this morning ALL my SM were gone on my "turbo charged" Roamio OTA (with cable card slot inserted to use for cable)

    did a reboot and now SM is back on some/most programs but here is the weird part. Some of my shows that I have a season + built up and when I lost SM the last time it only had it on the new shows (after it was resolved)....now it shows SM on ALL the episodes and not just the last 1/2 dozen or so. Yay Whee!!

    Am I the only one thinking all of these problems could be the result of some TiVo cost saving measure?

    While it did record correctly it turns out my 1P for Taken is new and reruns. It does have the correct S2,E6 tag but no OAD. Also no SM

    SNL ok with SM.
    Since Madam Secretary is back from break, I give it 50% chance of SM. Same for Timeless. ABC's Deception is new, so it gets a 25% chance.

    Auto-skip fails all the time when normal skip is working just fine.

    Interesting. I never hear the chime for SM, but sometimes I wait for the message. Usually because I need to be sure it's a commercial. I'm not sure how I would feel if I was always waiting for the skip to happen. I have enough anxiety in my life already. :)

    FOX was missing Skipmode Friday as well on Masterchef.

    No. It occurred to me that this seems like the beginning of the end of Skipmode. The absence of SM has been consistently egregious the past few weeks, and I can imagine it spreading to other days of the week beyond Thursdays and Fridays soon.

    I dont know if i would go as far as saying it is the end of Skipmode but even if it does go away it wont be the end of the world. I have used FF to skip commercials for over a decade, I think I can go back

    Ok, this is weird - I still have the current episode of 'Masterchef Junior' on deck and it shows 'skip'. I haven't tried to watch yet but I've never had one that showed 'skip' after the show title and didn't actually have it.

    No skip on SNL 3/10 or Worst Cooks in America 3/11 either.

    It may be early, but I'm calling it...the new regime at TiVo has decided not to continue supplying Skipmode data.

    SNL 3/10 had skip for me and I’m on Comcast where most people seem to have issues.

    Sunday night was nice. SM on Madam Secretary, NCIS: Los Angeles, Deception and Timeless. No padding either. 5-0

    You appear to be calling it too early. :)

    We also had SM on Worst Cooks in America (also on Comcast like morac). Watch it with closed captions to see if you see any issues that would prevent SM from showing up.

    TiVoTed mentioned that SkipMode is tied to CC data for a show, if a threshold of CC data is garbled your TiVo won’t match the recording with the SM database and no SM tag will appear.

    Edited: these garbles seem to be happening more frequently which is why SM ends up missing.

    I heard that also. Just to eliminate hardware, I sometimes record the same program on two TiVo boxes. I never see it work/fail on one but not the other.

    Just because I can, I'm recording all prime time on ABC, NBC, Fox and what there is on CBS. March Madness has started. I may need to grade on a curve since there is a storm headed my way.

    Instinct? It doesn't premiere until 3/18. There was a 2nd episode of 60 minutes in the 8 pm time slot.

    Oops. I messed it up with Deception. :oops:

    Fixed. Thanks

    I guess that means I had SM on more shows than aired? :D
