In case some users didn't see this on their Tivo messages:
TiVo 2020 GameSkip
Thanks--I've been wondering about this, but with TiVo reps. rarely posting here nowadays, hadn't seen anything here and hadn't gotten around to asking.*
* Funny but, shouldn't this be the sort of thing that TiVo sends out as TiVo box Messages? I guess some people received it, but others, no (I didn't). Though the company seems capable of sending me TiVo Stream 4K marketing messages there, for a product that does not yet exist.
They did, at least to mine & which is how I found out about it...I take it you did NOT get it?
Nope, no message here--I checked when I saw your post. But I suppose that TiVo could be rolling them out over time.
I had messages on three TiVo units today. TE3 and TE4.
I just checked my box, and the message now has appeared.
Nashville Comcast market here.... is anyone else’s guide for Fox messed up...? Mine has said “Upcoming: Super Bowl LIV Postgame “ for two days now... the entire schedule for the whole day says that. Also after getting the message on my box for recording the game....I cannot as the listing does not show the game.... just the postgame show thusly the recording fails.... using the box and the app. What an utter failure. Perhaps just my market...? Did a connection update no change.
Sounds like an issue with your local FOX affiliate screwing up their guide data - I have Tivo's on both Comcast & OTA from 2 markets; all my FOX SB listings are updated correctly & the same.
Copy that... thx
So, I'm wondering: as a business matter, does TiVo earn anything either directly or indirectly from Fox/advertisers through GameSkip? First, it encourages viewers to watch the commercials; and second, because of GameSkip, viewers can't skip the commercials through SkipMode/AutoSkip (although the commercials still may be sped through via FF and Advance).
Quite ingenious if TiVo does, if you think of it.
Havent these patent trolls patented that already?
As far as the guide issue goes. Just record fox from 3 to midnight!!
Game skip never appeared or worked for me either. Recorded Game on a Roamio.. I've had Tivo's since the Tivo Model 1 days and I worry about Tivo not lasting due to being bought out and all of their Intellectual property being spun off and monetized by the new owners while Tivo itself dies a slow death
I saw the message. I read the message. I recorded the game. And GameSkip does not work. Utterly useless. Normal skipping during TV playback is great. This sucks.
Well, the "good" news is: TiVo has been bought out (by the company Xperi; being referenced as a "merger"), although the deal is not expected to close until the second quarter of this year. TiVo to Merge With Entertainment-Tech Firm Xperi in $3 Billion Deal And nothing is being spun-off by TiVo in this--it's a total package merger.
still no SM on the Super Bowl
Tuesday 02-04-2020..... still no SKIP on my SB recording.....
I filled out the skipmode issue ticket and got skip the following day for the super bowl.
I just submitted a ticket. We'll see if it works
