    Ok, let's say that's true. But what determines whether a show gets the icon? Is some "proofing" done? I can understand that CC is used, but who or what determines that there is a problem with the CC content since the icon can appear shortly after the show ends? It's such a mystery. And frustrating.

    Got back from vacation and many recent shows didn't have the Skip Mode icon. I restarted the TiVo and the more recent shows had skip mode. This is the second time I've had to do the restart to get skip mode on recent shows. Hopefully this will be fixed.

    Restart really shouldn't have to do anything with it.. usually you can go in/out of now playing, or even just skip down to the bottom and back to the top of the list.. something that makes it ping the server..

    So I have a Onepass for Elementary on CBS, Sundays. I knew the masters was on and running behind, so I set a manual recording to record for 4 hours. There were 2 episodes on, and it was 30 min late.

    So my manual recording has Skipmode, and the two from Onepass do not. Weird, right??? And SM on the manual recording jumped from 0:00 to 30:00 or whenever the show actually started.

    Not weird at all. Your 1P recordings did not get the entire show. You should have padded each recording.

    I guess I sort of agree. I changed my 1P for Madam Secretary to not pad 1 hour. Set a regular recording for the first Elementary. Let my normal 1P for Elementary run 1 hour longer.

    Only the last Elementary has SM. The end of The Masters was not boring.

    Yes. I had SM on "Madam Secretary". I have 1 hour of stop time padding for everything I record on Sunday from either CBS or FOX.

    Thanks. I've just learned that splitting a program may cause SM to be lost. Next time I'll use two tuners.

    I guess I don't understand how *they* apply SM

    But I didn't want to pad my 1P by 45 minutes and then have to unpad it later.

    I thought the one-time manual recording was easier, and it was. I had the tuner to spare on a Sunday night :)

    According to what others have said, it's based on the closed captions.

    So I _presume_ the show has to air partially in its original time slot (so the recording is associated with the correct show), then their lookup tables for the closed captions find the right spots, even if it's "shifted" in the time slot from what the end user expects.

    I put 30 extra minutes at the end of Madame Secretary and after each episode of Elementary. Got SM on all 3, although it ignored the first 30 minutes, which of course, was the previous shows.

    Never got SM on Deadliest Catch 9PM a Regular Season last week (as others reported) but did get it on the 10PM added program. Did not have SM on this evenings Deadliest Catch and assumed they missed it for a second week. Finally the Skip Mode Icon showed up roughly about an hour after the end.

    You have the ability to pad 45 minutes at the end? I'd live to have that but mine jumps from 30 minutes to 1 hour.

    Also, Sunday Night again show why one should be able to modify START TIME forward (not just backwards) for at least up to 1 hour.

    You can go into the To Do list and change the recording options (padding or whatever) for an individual recording without modifying the OnePass.

    this weeks Dancing with the Stars had SM. so ep 1 & 3 didnt have it but 2 & 4 did

    The Detour (on TBS)...both shows had SM
    Samantha Bee had SM about an hour after the show was done recording (which was odd)

    Doesn't work for me. To get skip, I need to reboot the TiVo and then make a connection to the servers. Need to do it about three times a week to get all the available skips.

    Something is really wrong. I use one Roamio in Standby and it gets SM on everything. It records Fox, SyFy, USA and TBS. I can check it on my other Roamio and see the SM icons.

    Sadly, we don't know enough about the mechanics of SM to figure out the problem.
