    One possibility is that the earlier shows may have rerun post-Nov during the SkipMode window using the same Program ID. The tags were marked during the rerun and are in the database under that same ID?

    I could see this happening for non-OTA programs moreso than OTA broadcast programs because of the different rerun schedules.

    Interesting...I got HBO Go, WWE and Toon Goggles, but no skip mode on my Roamio Plus. Maybe another day!!:confused:

    Okay, I wasn't even thinking about that because I don't record reruns, it never entered my mind. :)

    Or, I should say, I rarely ever watch shows that have aired a second time, if it's something I'm interested in I will have recorded it the first time it aired. If that makes sense.

    Last night's episode of NCIS (CBS) had SkipMode. The preceding two episodes were not retroactively updated with SkipMode.

    Tivo announced today a (nationwide?) roll out of SkipMode for Roamio.

    Hopefully, SkipMode will become consistent now.

    It's weird that SkipMode has got me so excited and will probably only save me 16ish seconds of fast-forwarding on a 30 minute show :D

    But it is so simple and so elegant.

    Hopefully, and maybe Suits will end up getting SkipMode back after several weeks of not having it.

    It's a phased rollout and it appears to be by Roamio model, Pro's got it today and all of us will get it by the 24th. I'm waiting also with my Plus.

    One thing that's stood out for me since using the feature is that the show really seems to go by even faster now. You get used to a certain pace when viewing a show with the 30 sec skip button presses, but with SkipMode and the one press of a button, it seems to go by even faster, almost to the "wow, it's over already?" point.

    I have SkipMode on my Roamio Pro now, but it's applied strangely. For example this past Monday's X-Files doesn't have it (2 weeks ago does), but all my shows from yesterday do.

    Yeah, it's funny how what is really such a minor thing, isn't.

    So it looks like Pros and Basics have it but not the Plus? Boo! Who wants to wait?

    Romio basic in Indianapolis. No skip mode. No Comcast support for HBO GO. I am a sad puppy today. I guess I can look forward to skip mode in the next week.

    I've got 2 Pros and neither has skip mode yet. I've forced a connection 3 times. Frustrating.
