    OK I now have Skip but no "D" button. I use a remote that has a 1 / 2 switch so as to control two Tivos in same cabinet. Any way to get skip mode to work with it?

    Use the Channel Up button.

    So my Roamio now has skipmode. I went upstairs to my bedroom at night and it appears it's not on my Mini? I connected to the network to make sure there were no pending downloads, but nothing there. Should it be there?

    If you have the latest software, it is turned on in the daily download, not a software update.

    I have a Roamio Pro on Cable and a Roamio Basic that is setup for OTA. My Pro was enabled for SkipMode yesterday but my Basic doesn't appear to have been enabled yet. Tried a double connect and still no luck. Is anyone else with multiple Roamios seeing SkipMode not enabled on all of them?

    Almost everything on my TiVo is either a movie or has a skipmode icon. I would love to see them add BBC America.

    I absolutely love it! Now, migrate the functionality to the mobile app! :)

    Pro's got it first. The rest of the Roamios will roll out over the next week.

    I think you made that up because my mom's basic got it yesterday and my roamio plus still doesn't. :)

    I just saw it yesterday on my mini yesterday and it worked great. I assume my OTA has it but haven't check it yet. One odd thing about it is Wheel of Fortune has feature but its sister show Jeopardy doesn't and in my market their on the same channel.

    Combination of SkipMode + Slingbox is now really awesome for OOH viewing. Slingbox has always been much more reliable for OOH streaming but the problem is the huge buffer delay when using remote, but now with SkipMode that delay no longer matters for skipping commercials easily.

    Received the update couple days ago here in NJ. Had about 90 shows on my Roamio, most now have the green skip indicator. Nice surprise, being I thought only new recordings would have the skip. One thing I would like to put on a "wish list" is for the skip encoding to transfer over to another DVR. When transferring from my Roamio to my Bolt, the show copies but not the skip encode. Would be nice to get that in the future, hopefully TiVo would consider this. (I did send them a suggestion about this)

    Wouldn't the bolt get the skip data for itself?

    Yes, the bolt gets skip when recording. As does the Roamio (now). However, if you transfer from one to the other - the program copies but not the skip feature.

    I meant that once the recording was moved, why wouldn't the bolt retrieve the skip from TiVo. Just like recordings made months ago are getting it now when it gets turned on.

    Definitely makes sense, but it is not. I had an online chat with a rep, they confirmed it does not work. No reason it shouldn't.
