    I have HBOGo this morning on my Roamio Plus and Base, but no Skip Mode yet.

    I will wait until after the 24th before starting to think about contacting anyone though.

    We got a message on the TiVo today letting us know that we have it (although it was enabled for us yesterday). :)

    I did force a call, but didn't attempt a reboot. Reboot meaning pull the power? Or does the Mini have the settings restart after three thumbs down?

    On my Mini, all it took was going to live TV to exit Tivo central, the pressing the Tivo button to go back in, after a forced call of course.

    I then, do not know what the glitchy playback behavior is attributed to yesterday. It was exactly the same as what happened last update. I even saw the progress only partially there, with no wording just a blank bar.
    Anyway it's better today, but is not useable when it happens, now twice after updates or changes to features- must be the Tivo network overloaded in some way.

    There is a soft reboot in the Help menu.

    Both my basic Roamios connected today and I forced another service connection and no skip mode love for my two Tivos. Maybe tomorrow. Guide updated to the 29th of February.

    I have 2 Roamio Basics (not the OTA variety) and a Mini (Charter in WI). I am seeing the new apps (HBOGo-WWE-Toon Goggles), but no Skip mode. Anyone else seeing the same thing?

    My parents have a basic roamio on my plan and they got skip mode yesterday... My Plus doesn't have it yet. Not only do they get all of my tech support, they get new features first... damn!!!

    No SkipMode for my Plus yesterday; just forced a connection a bit ago and it's taking awhile to load the data - hopefully this is it. :)

    The Basic got the HBOGo, etc., today. Skipmode is still yet to come.

    But at least now we know that we're all getting the feature, and we have a date. (TiVo said everyone gets it by Feb 24 at the latest.)

    That's old. They announced yesterday that they're rolling it out nationally between now and the 24th. Most people with Roamio Pros got it yesterday.

    People in those two test markets have had it for months.
