    I usually just pad the last show on CBS Sunday night. I wait for the display of the delay on TV, then add to the last show. SM normally is happy with that. Worked last week, but this week there was only one game on my feed.

    Since skip is hot right now, I want to post an experiment I performed. I thought I read that SM will not be available if the program doesn't checksum with TiVo. I was curious since my commercials are always being clobbered by the local provider. I can tell since the last commercial is for something offered by the feed (like a TiVo). So I started a transfer of a movie with SM from a different TiVo. After 5 minutes I stopped the transfer. In a few minutes SM was applied to the fragment. So I added one more piece of junk information to my brain.

    I had the SM icon on all CBS Monday primetime (TN, BHA, AR, Bull) but skip did not work. This happens occasionally, but seems to always be CBS. A reboot usually fixes it for future recordings, but not the current ones.

    Last night The Late Show (CBS) had SM for the third time this month. AR & Bull were ok also.

    No SM on Grey's Anatomy last night. CC was fine, but there was a split-second drop out early in the episode.

    No SM on Young Sheldon last night. The 3 other CBS sitcoms (B Positive, Mom, The Unicorn) had SM.

    I wouldn't know. DirecTV is having a tiff with TEGNA, and I've lost my CBS station. :(:(

    Don't they realize they're pissing off the old people! :p And we vote!

    I don't understand why it's so inconsistent with the skip feature. Admittedly, I am terribly spoiled with skip. I assume it's because their guide data is so screwed up. I don't ask for a lot but I get exasperated when I don't get what I paid for. /whine

    I don't think it's a Guide Data issue. I've noticed in some cases when I'm missing SM it's because the CC is messed up (which is what SM is based on). In others, I assume they just don't have as many people working on it these days, and that sometimes they don't have enough people to cover the shows that need to be done.

    Same here, and that's a pretty highly-rated show. It's just frustrating!

    Can you briefly explain the connection between Skipmode and CC? Thanks.
