    Last night's The Late Show with Stephen Colbert had the "Press D" thing pop up where they mention what guests will be on tonight. It's still part of the show!

    How disappointing. But at least it looks like they got the Tooning Out The News segment marked for later in the show, so that's good.

    Last night's The Flash had about 13 seconds of the beginning of the episode cut off. By beginning, I mean from The CW logo to where it skipped to.

    I seem to only get skip mode half the time I should any more.

    Consider going to https://survey.confirmit.com/wix/1/p3075425841.aspx and selecting "SkipMode was unavailable for an episode or show when expected" assuming that is what I think it means. But it might be worth contacting them directly if a show isn't getting it like it should.

    About this week's Superman & Lois... about 23 minutes it, SkipMode cuts off 30 seconds. Did this happen for anyone else with episode "Broken Trust"?

    Surveys do nothing. I have lost count of how many I have sent in. Nothing is fixed nor get any responses back from Tivo.

    Thanks but I’m not sure anyone at TiVo cares that much to review them anymore.

    Maybe it's a numbers thing? The more people that do those SkipMode surveys, the more likely they'll notice something is wrong?

    I have a case # set up with their Tivo tech support regarding the lack of Skip Mode on programs that should have it. I don't have any faith in them that the issue will be resolved even going this route. Bit we will see!

    Call them up over the phone. Try escalating. This, if it truly matters for you to get it (temporarily) fixed. Just be courteous.

    May 18th's episode of Black-ish, at the 18 minute mark, the marker was set at the beginning of The Wonder Years reboot commercial. The whole commercial.

    Just noticed mixed-ish had the same problem.

    Tonight's episode of The Flash had around 10 seconds cut off the beginning of the 20-minute mark segment.

    Superman & Lois has about 13 seconds cut off around the 25-minute mark.

    Monday's episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert was incomplete. Last segment was left unmarked, which contained a ZOOM OUT! segment.

    June 8th's The Flash "Good-bye Vibrations" has about 63 seconds cut off at the 22 minute mark. Yep, a bit over a minute.

    July 19th's episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert had the TOONING OUT THE NEWS segment unmarked and the end of the show unmarked.

    I wonder how many skip over TOONING OUT THE NEWS when they fail to mark it.

    SM marker messed up in the second commerical break of in the dark. It ended easy too soon. It was only a minute, there was a second skip after 4 commercials that brought it to the end of the break.

    Maybe it's different based on the market? For the 19th, right? Monday's episode.

    I record late night. I watch it the next morning. Only thing "wrong" is both NBC and CBS have SM three nights in a row. That almost never happens.

    There was one bad skip point on last night's The Tonight Show. Got to watch 3 commercials.
