    Skipmode uses the CC to fix the skip points. If the CC is scrambled enough, SM doesn't work.

    How can you tell if CC is scrambled? Do you have it ON all the time?

    Most of the time.

    And for some reason, we've seen that CC can be perfectly good in some places, and not in others. Which is probably why sometimes some people get SM on a show and others don't.

    I don't think I have SM on anything in the last few weeks. Used to get it on shows on Discovery...nothing now.

    Did notice I can't pull cast info on shows any longer. As soon as I go to Info, More Info, I will see Cast and then it will disappear. Related?

    This week I have SM on late night NBC & CBS but not ABC.

    There's something strange with casts. Some seem "fixed" under the description but correct as part of the description, showing in quotes. Notice "The Late Show" CBS at 11:35pm.

    I haven't seen skip mode on Gold Rush this whole season so far. I even submitted a missing skip ticket for it and got crickets.

    I submitted a ticket for a program error. They fixed it, and two weeks later I received a response email -> which included the error that was fixed in English <-. That is new.

    Slightly off topic but the guide that is used for the Sony TV is Zap2It and I noticed it is pretty outdated. It looks like since SECV no longer uses the Moxi UI and switched to TiVo they have not updated the guide listing for Nielson.
    I think I will try to get it fixed and I noticed one or two errors in the TiVo guide that needs fixing. Also since the merger my password to the data division no longer works so I will see if I can get that working again.
    With Discovery channel they are now listing the 3 Gold Rush shows as one show on Friday so I am wondering if that is the reason there is no skip mode as nobody wants to watch it for 3 hours. Then during the week the 3 combined shows will run independently and my TiVo will record them again as new.

    No SM on Chicago Med, Chicago PD, or Chicago Fire.

    This is becoming very disheartening.

    Wait, you guys got Chicago shows last night? Mine "recorded" them all, but the local NBC affiliate (WMAQ Chicago) stayed with live NBC News coverage of the DC business all evening.

    Thanks for the tip. I just checked and it was news on my feed also. I guess that explains lack of SM. Gracenote (zap2it.com) fixed their guide too.

    I seem to be getting no SM on the Food Network anymore. Anyone else see this? At least on some of their shows. Two examples are Guy's Grocery Games and Beat Bobby Flay.

    Looked at the NBC site and it now lists the Chicago stuff and other as being on next week vs. this week. They obviously moved since the news was more important for the night.

    Yeah, I think the showrunner (or the NBC Account) tweeted it out at like 9pm Wednesday night that they were all getting pushed one week back

    Nothing on Batwoman last night (it's becoming increasingly rare that I even have new shows on my TiVo! Everything seems to be streaming these days, except for news...).

    Skip Monkey left early. Second NCIS and FBI: Most Wanted missing SM. First NCIS was OK.

    Nothing on Resident Alien...although that doesn't shock me. Syfy often doesn't have skip, and when it does, in my experience the CC is often scrambled enough that it doesn't show up for me.
