    Any idea when it will be available? David Shoop says they've fixed it.

    Should be soon then. When did he say it was actually fixed?

    It's kind of difficult to follow the posts on that FB page but I think he posted yesterday that "all issues had been resolved" right before Thanksgiving and that they would be scheduling an update.

    Last week (no update since on FB):
    David Shoop: Great news... before I headed out the door yesterday I was able to grab some of our best SW architects. I reproduced the problems with IFTTT at my desk, handed them my box and said please fix it. These guys are darn good, so I’m hopeful early next week to hear some good news.

    He posted this yesterday, in a reply to another poster (Anthony Bruno)...
    David Shoop Deep breath everyone. All issues have been fixed just before thanksgiving, we just need to schedule a client SW release. Even better news, the double skip problems many have seen (Alicia) have also been resolved!

    When you say "auto skip" do you mean there is a feature in Hydra to auto skip commercials without having to click the "D" button? I don't have Hydra but I was wondering if we would ever see an auto-skip feature.

    That's exactly what I'm saying! ;-) The implementation is purposely devious to avoid "network lawsuits", and it's had some bugs, but when they get it straightened out it's going to be nice! It uses IFTTT and is kind of like having someone automatically pressing the "D" button when the message appears at the top of the screen. You'll have to set up an account on IFTTT.com to use the autoskip. BTW, if you're interested in the FB group, it's closed and you have to be "invited" but that's no problem. You don't have to belong to that group to use the autoskip .

    Thanks for the updates, when TiVo just can't see the benefits of posting here (the de facto TiVo forum, and without the abuses of FB).
