    Be nice if I have skip mode by Sunday for the Oscars. I usually give such programs an hour or so head start so I can fast forward through the commercials as well as the boring speeches. But, I guess the program has to be fully recorded before the skip mode is added.

    I don't think the Oscars will have SkipMode, I believe it is considered a live show and live shows don't get SkipMode. And yes SkipMode isn't available on any show unit it is done broadcasting.

    I have a Tivo Roamio Plus. I used skip mode for the first time yesterday. A note pops up on the screen telling you the recording has skip mode enabled. Pretty awesome feature.

    What other TiVo equipment do you own? A Roamio Pro?

    No, I don't have a Roamio Pro. Just the plus and a mini.

    Is Orange Co., CA considered in the "Bay Area" and therefore part of the initial SkipMode rollout?

    No, Orange County is not geographically part of the Bay Area. We are about 400 miles south of the Bay Area. Not sure if we are part of the initial roll out though.

    SkipMode is not active for a program until after the it finishes airing. Also, live events aren't usually included.

    Calling TiVo Support will not get you skip mode as they have no power to authorize your unit to receive it. The idea of connecting twice and rebooting is a typical troubleshooting procedure they always have you try. They will receive orders from corporate on what to tell us what the new plan is.
    You will have the same results if you call your congressman to get skip mode.
    The authorization comes from corporate headquarters in California.
    As soon as they authorize your unit you then be able to get skip mode and not have to wait 72 hours or any period of time.

    Oh. and no skip mode on my two basics yet. Maybe tomorrow as both of my units made their service connection for today. So it is D+2 for me.

    Finally actual data - but no one's gonna like it. New "deadline " March 10. @tivosupport: " Update SkipMode is still rolling out 50k boxes per day, projected finish date March 10."

    SkipMode is available on my recordings of both "The Wiz" and "Grease", so some live shows must get it.
