That is true.
That is BS.
My suspicion is whomever is in charge of the Skipmode grunt work has been cutting corners or skipping out on their duties entirely Thursdays and Fridays.
Skipmode is not entirely missing any night.
I suppose when you take ALL shows with Skipmode available that is true, but it has been missing on all shows I record certain nights.
Can you clarify that?
The point is that in general there is nothing special about either Thursday or Friday.
The excuse that SM is missing because the CC is garbled is BS. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the CC.
I’m pretty sure I read somewhere on here that CC data has been messed up as well recently, maybe from one of the members who is hearing impaired?
I have CC on all the time is it is fine.
Is there other data in CC aside from the text that can cause this issue? I don’t know enough on what’s included.
If it isn't visible, how would "one of the members" know it is garbled? As I said, it's BS.
I’m just asking the question, I don’t know the answer but I’m certain I’ve read of garbled CC here recently.
I give up.
None of the shows I've watched with missing SM have had CC problems...
Aren’t CC local to your network broadcasters and not country wide? So that if the captions have problems from the broadcaster where they’re marking the skip points at, you’re never going to get them to match with various locals that might be correct?
Why on earth do you think that?
I’ve read here one person complain about captions on a show and another say they were fine with their local broadcast of the same show.
That's probably due to bad transmission/reception. The only shows captioned locally are locally produced ones.
Those are the days I've been missing Skipmode on the majority of the shows I record. However, I'm only recently noting no skip on shows I've been accumulating but have not watched at all this season (ie. The Alienist, Magicians, The Resident).
Update: Refreshing the UI with thumbs up, thumbs down, play, play brought back Skipmode after a forced restart after software rollback to 20.7.RC29.
Last night I recorded ALL prime time and late night on ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox. That's 15 programs, not all new.
My score: 15 with SM, 0 missing SM. 1 down, four to go.
