    Missed SM on Tommy (CBS). A Late Show, The Tonight Show and TDS were good.

    Though most all my recorded shows lately have the SKIP icon, for the past 2 or 3 weeks SKIP has not been working on them.
    Mostly shows on ABC, prime time. ie Grey's Anatomy, Station 19, For Life and the sitcoms.

    If you are OTA, it could be that your ABC signal had issues during your recording and affected the closed captioning (which is used to set the skip marks) at some point during those shows.

    Are you watching on the TiVo itself, or a Mini?

    The Tivo, itself.

    Okay, I had a theory, but that shoots it down.

    Good luck!

    Yes, it's definitely a prevailing theory around here but SM issues have been rampant for some time now. I wouldn't be surprised if the surge in shows without SM was due to staff being unable to perform their jobs in recent weeks.

    That being said, I had SM on nearly every show on Thursday. No SM on Shahs of Sunset, 3/10 though.

    It's really been hit and miss lately. I've also had some bizarre skip experiences lately.

    One show I was watching last week that had skip was dramatically 'off'. I was in about minute 15 when it was time to skip and one skip took me to minute 54. Each commercial segment it did that - always all the way to almost the end of the show.

    Yes, TiVo let their sole Skip man go due to COVID. Sorry...I’m going to request a monthly service credit until TiVo can reliably provide the service they promote. If everyone would do the same, we might get this fixed.
