    Yeah. The question at this moment, I think, is whether the rollout to Pros nationwide is simply phase two of the rollout, after which TiVo will pause and assess for days/weeks/months before further expanding, or if TiVo is rolling SkipMode out today to all Roamios and the Pros are just first in the queue on the server.

    I hope it's not too long a delay to other Roamios aside from Pros.

    Me too. My lowly Roamio OTA wants some SkipMode love, y'all.

    TiVo Support just tweeted back to me that it's a phased rollout and everyone should have it by February 24th.

    Not seeing it yet in Dayton Ohio on a basic Roamio via OTA even after a forced connection to servers. Definitely have my fingers crossed though!

    The TiVo support page says SkipMode is being rolled out to all Roamios from Feb 16 to 24.

    This is great!
    Now the sting of paying so much more for more hard drive space on a Pro instead of doing it myself doesn't hurt so bad. :D

    Having an issue with my Mini. I have SkipMode on both the Bolt and Roamio now, and the Mini is able to use SkipMode for whatever device it's paired to. But if I pick a show from an alternate device it shows the SkipMode icon but it doesn't actually work. :(

    However if I do the same thing from the Roamio or the Bolt (i.e. MRS a show from the other) SkipMode works fine.

    Are you in the same universe as the rest of us?

    Thirty or forty posts talking about the expanded rollout, and this is what you post?

    I got Skip mode on my Roamio Pro in New Orleans on Cox cable. I have 2 shows recorded yesterday that are showing the skip icon. I tried it out on NCIS New Orleans and it works GREAT!!! Thanks TIVO!!!!!! Oh, and yes I did sign up for the early release of the last software issue (RC21).
