    Don't be frustrated... it's only day #1. For a feature we were never promised to receive in the first place.

    SkipMode GREEN SKIP labels all over the place.

    NO MESSAGES ON ANY OF OUR ROAMIOS OR MINIS.

    So far I have:
    ABC
    ABC Family
    AMC
    CBS
    CC
    CW
    Fox
    FX
    H
    NBC
    TCM
    TNT
    USA
    WTCNCD ?

    So far I got some shows on 13 of the 20 networks.

    I have it on both of our Roamio Pros.
    And 2 Minis, but only when linked to our Roamio Pros.
    My Roamio Basic does not have SkipMode.

    So now I have
    QuickMode,
    New Channel Logos &
    SkipMode.

    I live in South Florida and was resigning myself that SkipMode was probably ending
    and we would never see SkipMode here in South Florida.

    I FINALLY GET TO USE THE GREEN BUTTON ON OUR REMOTES.

    Got Skip Mode in Phoenix, AZ on Cox this afternoon. Works well. I have a Pro. It was a nice surprise.

    Now seeing it on my Roamio Pro in the Boston suburbs.

    I haven't followed SkipMode much because my TiVo couldn't do it until now. How long after an "eligible" show airs does the skip info become available? Does it tend to be hours or days?

    I've seen most in about 2 minutes.

    When I got home tonight, I had the Skip Mode on this DVR message. Skip Mode was enabled on my Roamio (basic model) and I have HBO and the other apps as well. Excellent.

    Anybody else get glitchy playback,,, again. Every update seems to create playback freezes, delayed response, and glitches now. I actually turned Tivo off, it was so bad. This happened last update too but fixed itself after a time...

    This has to be the best TiVo feature ever developed since the TiVo was created!

    I know SkipMode is still new(for us Roamio folks) so this is not a complaint but I am curious if anyone has seen an issue where SkipMode will just go away mid program? I was watching the 90 minute episode of Survivor which I started after it was fully finished. It had the Skip icon so I was using that but exactly at the 60 minute mark SkipMode was gone and it required normal FF to finish off the episode. Has anyone seen anything like that or no? I watched a few other shows afterwards and Skip worked just fine so I'm wondering if it was just a glitch in the system for Survivor(I still had Skip showing if I left the episode and went back to the menu) or if it was related to the program being an extended episode or something.

    Yeah now Roamio owners will find out how inconsistent SkipMode is. Let those threads commence. ;)

    Got it here on Florida Central East Coast. First thing I watched with skip was Survivor which was 1.5 hours long. Skip mode disappeared to function at 1 hour into the show.A couple of other shows I watched 30 minutes each worked flawlessly.

    The person marking the commercials probably stopped at one hour not realizing Survivor was a 90 minute episode.

    Enabling SkipMode wasn't an update since the software didn't update. The feature was already there from one of the earlier updates. Or did your TiVo just get RC21 with the "winter update" message?

    SkipMode was working one Commercial at a time, Not one Commercial Block
    Had to one push of the Green D button about 8 times.

    SkipMode on Many Shows, But Not On Most Shows

    SkipMode showing up on more shows and a lot of my older shows.

    One SkipMode show was weird last night.

    I hate the Green D key and it seems to jump one commercial, and a notation showed up in the upper left to use the Green D key to skip Commercial.
    and it showed up for each successive commercial. Possible 8 in a row.
    I double checked to make sure I did not miss a lot of the show.

    One show had SKIP and it jumped many commercials, but one set of commercials did not skip.
    I wonder if these commercials were added by on elf the local stations?
