    I am in the Chicago Market and have had the same experience from my Mini's. I have not tried it from one roamio to another. (EDIT - just tried it from a roamio and it worked.)

    Skip mode is available and working on my Roamio Pro as well. Odd thing tho, on some series recordings of which I have the entire series recorded some but not all of the episodes have the "Skip" icon next to them. Going back a far as Deadliest Catch from last spring, what's up with that I wonder?

    Congrats everybody! It's quite nice to just press the channel button and boom! Works pretty darn good. You're going to love it. :)

    We have all seen misses in the skip data at times. Also if you have a lot on your TiVo it may take some time to fully populate. It has to go get data from the server.

    The data can be reused, so if it aired as a rerun on one of the supported channels, during the supported time, then the skip data was generated and applied to your older recording.

    Are you asking why Deadliest Catch doesn't have all its episodes marked "Skip"?

    SkipMode went active about the 3rd week of Nov 2015 so anything before that will not have SkipMode capability.

    And there have been some misses where the show simply didn't get SkipMode for some reason.

    Have restarted and connected to Tivo twice, hmm, -and they are only 20 feet apart!
    -------------------
    Spoke too soon again, both have SKIP now... yea.

    I saw skip mode on my pro when I got home from work today. Looks like its on most on my shows. Tried it on one show so far and I'm impressed, it was flawless.

    An example, I have Rizzoli & Isles from 3/17/15, the skip icon is on that show then all shows from 6/23/15 thru 2/16/16.
    The skip icon does not show up on 6/23/15 or 6/30/15.
    It then again shows up 7/7/15 thru 2/16/16.
    Skip is working on everything with the skip icon and not working on the shows in between dates with no icon..
    Strange?

    Other folders are showing similar behavior.

    I wasn't aware that any shows would have SkipMode applied before Nov, I defer to Dan's response above, maybe it is being used on previously aired shows as well. I personally don't have it on any shows that aired before the SkipMode release date in Nov '15 and I have quite a few episodes from before Nov on networks that are SkipMode listed, so yeah, that does seem strange.

    Comcast in the St. Paul, MN suburbs has it now also. Seems to work pretty well, too.
