    Guess I was premature, None of the NBC Prime time programs have Skip Mode.
    I keep filling out the support report page on Tivo's site with no results.

    Am I the only one not getting the Skip with NBC?

    If I start a show from the TiVo iOS app, it won't play with skip mode even if it's marked as having skip. I have to start it from the Roamio itself to get the skip tags.

    Found it more interesting than annoying since almost all the time I play the recordings through the TiVo, not the iOS app. But curious to see if anyone else has seen the same thing.

    Edit: to clarify this is watching the show on tv, starting it from the app. Not streaming the show in the app, which I know doesn't get skip.

    I have no idea whether or not you are the only one, but I have it on all of the NBC prime time shows on mine. I don't suppose your cable company has converted the NBC channel to H.264?

    I get skip mode on nbc shows. I don't know if taking 1/2 hour or so to get them (based on seeing this the last 3 weeks for you me and the apocalypse) is considered slow or fast but I do get them.

    I know Comcast is not converting any local broadcast channels to MPEG-4. Now other cable companies could be another story.

    I did get skip data for "The Voice". None for "Of Kings and Prophets". Did anyone?

    I do not think that is accurate.

    Now that is accurate.

    I guess that's why I didn't get it to work. I have a hard time reading directions!

    Skip mode is working for me. I love it! Not on all shows but I did notice if you wait a day or so after the recording, skip mode shows up. Must take some time to put in the markers.

    No, I'm in Phoenix on Cox and haven't had SM on NBC for the last few days. It was working last week but now not.

    I was getting skip mode on the NBC Primetime shows, but it has seeming stopped. Also stopped on some CBS, like Amazing Race.

    I am on Frontier FIOS, Portland, OR area.

    No sm on nbc or abc from the 11th. (Grim & Last Man Standing _ Dr Ken) I didn't record anything on the 12th.

    Take the time to fill out the survey for each show and it will get fixed.

    You really need to call TiVo.

    Love the Quick and Skip move but how do I remove the writing from the screen, In other words, how to turn it off?

    Pressing the "D" button removes it.

    IIRC, didn't TiVo Margret ask people to send the missed skip information directly to her? Perhaps someone can find her post.

    I have SM on CBS, and then its not. I am finding that I have to reboot my Tivo from time to time. After rebooting the SM feature is back.
