    I saw a TiVo announcement Saturday saying if the super bowl was recorded the Skip function would bypass gameplay and stop for commercials and halftime. (I was curious to see that so I recorded). So far I see no Skip function for the super bowl at all.

    I did the same thing and I see no skip function at all for it. I’m going to leave it and see if it shows up. From what I saw of the ads last night during the game, they don’t even seem worth the trouble even with the skip mode, but TIVO shouldn’t send out the message to the machines if they can’t deliver.

    Mine has the SKIP tag, but I haven't watched the recording yet to see if/what it skips.

    I restarted my Tivo Box, connected to the service, but still no skip feature on the Super Bowl.

    Nothing here, TiVo really loves to tout features and never deliver.

    My skip function is working to skip straight to the commercials. I happened to have to do a couple of forced connections last night for another reason so I don’t know if that is the reason it is working for me or not. My recording is on a Roamio Pro and I am viewing it through a Bolt Vox.

    It's nice to watch a Super Bowl that's more enjoyable than the advertising. These commercials have become so over-hyped that they just go over the top trying to outdo each other.

    I recorded the game on my Bolt and my Roamio. No skip function on either. I setup the recording from the guide and padded it by 90 minutes. I forced a couple of service connections but still no skip.

    Skip worked fine and I have not made a service connection since the game.

    No skip on my TiVo Roamio OTA either. Just set it to record from the guide and added an hour...

    Mostly curious - watched the commercials live and wasn't impressed. Thought I'd watch them again watching with 'Game Skip' but it looks like another Tivo screw up....

    I have gameskip on my TE3 Roamio Pro recorded via Comcast. Showed up about half-hour after I stopped recording (had 3-hour padding originally).

    Skip showed up automatically for me a little after the broadcast was over.

    No great loss not to have it, though--not a whole lot to the commercials this year . . .
