Yes, still occasionally no skip on new recordings. BUT, there is actually an improvement for me. Usually skip is only available on major network shows and major cable channel shows/movies. I like to record a lot of really old TV series. So record a good amount of shows off local type channels, not major network. Amazing (to me), some of my old shows on MeTV now have skip!!! Wow, never expected that. Am not complaining that's for sure............................ Oldest is an episode of The Honeymooners from 1955. All episodes of Wagon Train (1960s) in the last week. And a few episodes of Happy Days but not all. Am not sure how they choose what shows/channels/networks get skip, somehow MeTV got added.
