I suggested that to him earlier. I think he is using channel up now. We will see if that helps.
I've done that too as my finger seems to want to lie where the Advance button is instead of the D button which is worse as I programmed mine for the old behavior which skips to the end.
I've switched to the Channel up button as well to avoid this!
Well no skip mode today. I thought some of us would have gotten it today. This basically leaves tomorrow into Wednesday to complete the roll out.
still nothing on my pluses
Some customers wanted OTA capability, something the Plus and Pro don't have regardless of price.
Why? Most TiVo owners know nothing about what is happening to other tivo owners.
Me either. Forced a few connections before leaving for work and no joy.
Assuming the 24th is a hard date - I doubt it. If they take longer what is the downside for them? They made the schedule, they can change it.
I am patiently awaiting the upgrade for my OTA. I hope it comes on schedule but would not be surprised if there is some delay. I consider it an extra capability that was not there when I purchased the unit so it is a bonus.
My Pro got skip mode last week. And I see this morning it finally showed up on my Basic.
So I guess it updated after the nightly call. I don't even have my Pro and Basic connected to a TV right now. Just to the network. So I've been accessing them through my Bolts.
My Pro got Skipmode last week, and my Roamio Basic got it last night (2/22) after a forced net connect. W00T
Good point. I wonder what percentage of TiVo owners have ever visited this forum. I bet it's a very small number.
Still do not have it on my Roamio Plus. I've seen many posts from Plus owners stating the same.
And considering how short the rollout schedule is, it seems...ungracious to complain.
+1 Ungracious is a big understatement. A week is a typical rollout. Adding the feature first to customers who paid more $$$, if true, is reasonable. You don't want to update by location. Phased rollout is final testing. Tivo wants to know if there is an issue with a particular cable system
As of this morning, still nothing on my Roamio Plus. I didn't check my Basic.
I have a Plus and have not yet gotten skipmode. Waiting a week seems reasonable to me. I might be a little annoyed if it's not here by 2/24 but it won't be the worst thing in the world.
I only question your comment that it's reasonable that Tivo would roll out the feature to those who paid more money. I assume that you're saying that Pro owners paid more for their boxes than Plus owners. That isn't true in many situations. Anyone who bought their Plus in the first few months of release likely paid more than those that bought their Pro in the last year or so. The Pro has been available for $600 with lifetime for awhile now and many who bought the Plus paid $800 or even $900 with lifetime. If Tivo really wanted to add the feature to those who paid more they would have added it to those who bought their boxes first.
Now I have no issue at all with their roll out schedule. Seems reasonable to me. I just hope they keep to their 2/24 date and I have it by then. But if I have to wait longer I'll survive.
Does TiVo have geographically distributed servers or one big server farm somewhere. If the former, a more even spread across the country would make more sense based on server capacity.
Or if they have different entry points for different system types, they would spread the type of boxes either randomly or geographically.
In other words, they will do what is best for their server load. Especially ramping up a new service.
Still waiting in Ct.
Just checked my two ghetto model Roamios and no skipmode joy here. I think the argument that Pro owners get skipmode because it is the most expensive model is ludicrous as a lot of Pros were sold to owners who constantly strive to get their gear at the lowest cost. Here are two threads that cover this.
Some Pro owners are so cheap that they managed to jones free slide pro remotes from TiVo. Some were not satisfied with that and went back for another free remote.
I find it a smack in the face if TiVo is rolling out this feature to the pro units first and working their way down the base models as some of us paid more for our ghetto units that what pro owners paid.
Also if TiVo sets a date then it is imperative that they meet their own deadline. They did a bunch of Pro units last Thursday and then did nothing until this morning. If they can't meet their own deadline then why set one in the first place.
If this roll-out is not regional, what explains the lack of anything going on in the Pacific Northwest? Checks with several TiVo friends and family in Washington, Idaho and Oregon are pretty dreary. If the roll-out is by product, Wednesday may be a monumentally busy day for TiVo. I'm anticipating issues and phone calls to tech support. Sheeesh!
