    I've noticed a significant decrease in number of major network shows where Skip isn't happening automatically. Something's failing somewhere, more often than it usually does. It seems so rare I'm even watching things recorded on the TiVo anyway, I might just consider the fix is to stream from other sources instead of continue recording. I haven't really tried to do an inventory of recorded series to see what is or isn't available on a subscribed service and when it is available. Might have to do that soon. :)

    1. I don't remember if anyone said there was a difference between TE3 and TE4 for lack of skips.
    2. Any thoughts on whether this is some experimentation by the cable companies in consort with network TV to add another lost feature to TiVo owners in an effort to push them out.

    I doubt networks and cable companies care about TiVo enough to take any kind of action. Or even are aware that TiVo still exists...

    Seems to be fixed for me too. All 8 shows I recorded last night had SKIP. (FOX - NBC - CW - CBS - ABC) on TE4 Roamio

    Guess I should have mentioned. The three CBS shows were my TE3 Bolt (OTA), and the three NBC shows were my TE3 Roamio Plus (Cable).

    It would be really swell if Tivo informed their customers when there are issues with Skip mode not being available.
    They don't so that's why this group still uses this thread because they are trying to determine if it is just their Tivo or if everyone is having the issue.
    And, if not, then they know to troubleshoot their Tivo, perhaps reboot it, whatever to figure out why they are not getting skip mode.
    That's most of the time.

    I'm still in awe of people who say they get skip mode on daytime shows and news shows. I never get skip mode on any of those. It's not until the 7 pm shows start which is after most of the news shows.

    OK. How weird is this? My OTA Chicago Med/Fire/PD from last night all had skip. My cable recordings of the same shows didn't!

    I'm just a few miles north of NYC, so I'm pretty sure my OTA and cable shows all emanate from the same East Coast feed.

    I recorded 17 shows shows last night from NBC News to Jimmy Kimmel on various networks. They all have skip except The Unicorn on CBS.

    I'd expect the opposite. OTA disrupted by bad weather or something. I have a Bolt that records OTA, and Roamio Plus that does cable, but I don't record the same things, so haven't really had a chance to compare.
    What's up with The Unicorn? Same here. Skip for everything on all the major networks, including shows on ABC/NBC/FOX/CW, some cable shows, and the three CBS sitcoms leading up to it, but not The Unicorn. So you're not the only one. I haven't watched the recording yet, to see if there was anything strange, like a emergency newsbreak of something. My recording of The Unicorn was OTA, and it started snowing around that time, so I figured that was the problem.

    I record from Spectrum Central Florida. I haven't checked out the recording either. I just watched it on CBS All Access.

    No skip on The Blacklist. I haven’t had any program have skip since Feb 11th (9 days).

    It would be amusing if we discover that the networks are manipulating the exact closed captioning data post-commercial-break market by market in order to screw up any commercial-skip designs expecting consistent closed caption data be present in all markets.

    Apologize in advance for going off topic, but at least you got The Blacklist! The 2/12 episode (Wellstone Agency) on my box was tagged S8E7, when it was really S8E6. The 2/19 "Chemical Mary" episode was also tagged S8E7, so I guess my box thought it had already been recorded. Sigh.

    There is for me. It’s actually the first skip I’ve gotten since the 11th.

    My SNL also has SM, or at least the late one did. So far for me, the only new show without SM since SM restarted has been The Unicorn. But I no longer record The Blacklist so I can't vouch for that one.

    Skip mode is MIA again tonight on what i've got recorded so far. TiVo is failing at its best feature in recent weeks.
