    Is anyone still having issues with SM on The CW? None of the DC Comics shows are working for SM as well as closed captioning not working. For that matter CC doesn't work on The CW at all, recording or live. SD or HD channel. Have gone as far as to restore my Bolt to factory defaults and go through setting up all of my one passes again and still no luck.

    Mine has been fine. But if your system doesn't have the captions, it can't have Skip. (For some reason, the quality of captions can vary from one provider to another.)

    I have gotten no skip mode on any CW prime time show this entire season. I’m watching WBKI in the Louisville, KY market. I contacted the station in October for help in fixing their garbled closed captions (thanks astrohip and Rob Helmerichs). Setting standard captions to None and digital captions to DTVCC1 in TiVo Accessibility fixed the closed captioning. But SM has never returned.

    Anyone else in the Louisville area getting skip mode from WBKI? I’m using a Roamio OTA on TE4.

    Haven't had skip mode on anything from WBKI in many months. Frustrating.

    So here is something weird...I'm getting SM on some syndicated shows now...

    I get SM on the new episode of Judge Judy. Here is the weird thing. I use to never get SM on it but as of 12/2 I now do. The program use to be on the FOX affiliate (KEYC-DT2) and as of 12/1 Mankato got a NBC affiliate (KMNF-LD) so they moved JJ to there. Now SM shows up.
    Also get SM on Kelly Clarkson show but its shown outside of the "normal" SM times (isnt it 4pm-after the late shows)? Kelly is on at 2pm

    But I noticed Masked Singer and the Moodys don't have SM on them
    Monday's CBS national news did not have SM but last night did. NBC has had SM on all 7 shows I've been able to record

    Take a program, like JJ, that is all over the country. I look at my guide and I see it upcoming at 4pm to 5:30EST. So assuming some Skip Monkies adds the require tags (or whatever) that allows SM, you may get SM when it shows in your area. It's on CBS in my area. If a program first shows at 8pm, but repeats at 2pm, SM will follow. There's nothing consistent about SM. BTW, she gets paid $47 million a year. Good work if you can get it. :)

    But what doesn't makes sense for me at least is until 12/2 JJ was carried on my local (KEYC-DT2) FOX station and I never got SM. When Gray Television lit up KMNF NBC & CW they moved some of the "better" syndicated programming from the FOX station to NBC (they own both stations) and now the new episode gets SM. The only logical explanation is when it was on FOX it was outside of the "skip mode timeframe" (1-2pm CST).

    I guess I can't really complain because for 6 months I didnt have skipmode at all (was using the TivoHD due to only having 2 stations in my DMA....we're up to 4 now) :D

    I had the SM tag on CBS evening news and prime time shows last night, but SM did not work. Not the first time this has happened.

    Missing skip on more than half of the episodes of shows that normally get it. Late show for example, 4 out of the last 10.

    The variability of whether a show that normally gets it has pretty much finished me off as a tivo user. Had it since the series 1 was $900. Time to look for something else.

    This is either a terrible automated process that isn't working, tivo needs to have more people working it if its a manual process, or they should just come straight out and tell us they're going down the tubes. On the shows I watch, it was available almost 100% of the time a year or two ago. Its gotten progressively worse.

    So what else has good picture quality, works well and preferably has auto commercial skip? I have roku players and google tv's with roku's on them. Its time to move on.

    The Friday night Tonight Show was missing SM, but since it was the wrong episode from the week of Thanksgiving I gave up caring.

    It does make me wonder why The Late Show is missing SM so often. I'm sure it's not political. ;)

    The episode Friday night was a screw up since they have been doing their Christmas sweater countdown. The Late Show is generic all week. It had SM last night but not marked new. It was new. I've given up on late night. So far prime time is holding on. Probably since almost everything is a repeat.

    The Skip Monkeys must be on holidays because its been erratic

    SNL this past Saturday no SM (it was a rerun) but the "classic" SNL DID have SM
    Fallon did not have SM on the 23rd or 26th
    CBS National News no SM on 12/28 (yet NBC Nightly News did)
    NBC Nightly news no SM on 12/30 (yet CBS News did)
    Fallon on 12/30 had no SM. While it was a rerun Tivo called it "new" with OAD of 12/12. The 12/12 episode had general guide info that night.
    Kelly Clarkson show on 12/30 (local NBC) didn't have SM. I know its outside the "SM time" (its on at 2pm) but most episodes have had SM

    Neither 60 minutes or Flirty Dancing had SM either this past Sunday

    I don't expect the Skip Monkeys to be back full time until 1/5. The guide still has some TBA and then NFL playoffs will mess things up.
