    Wow, only 2 posts in the last 11 hours or so. I guess almost everyone must be happy now.

    I'm still waiting on my Roamio Basic. I am refraining from emailing Margret because now I'm really curious to see if it ever arrives on its own. Still over a week to go according to their latest "deadline".

    I coincidentally got skipmode shortly after sending an email to Margret. Thanks Margret!

    Skip mode is one of the most wonderful TiVo features to come along in a long time. I'm enjoying the heck out of it.

    Nope. I still don't have it. However, I was slapped down by a troll for chiming in earlier on this thread with some information so I'm just sitting back and seeing how this plays out.

    I emailed Margret and had Skipmode the next day. It is the best thing Tivo has done in the 10 years I have owned various Tivo's. I currently am using the Roamio Plus and did no updating to make it work.

    Start with your TSN which can be located in the systems information section when you click on Tivo: Then, : "Margret; I would like to meet your challenge and have Skipmode on my Tivo". Thanks in advance for your help.

    I am also waiting for the 'natural' rollout. While I appreciate what she is doing for us, I will save my requests for help from Tivo Margret for more important 'issues'. I consider this a free upgrade of capability so I will cut Tivo some slack if they miss there own 'promised' dates.

    FYI - I have received the update on one of my two OTA boxes so far. (Of course it is the lesser utilized one.)

    No action on my part and my second basic Roamio received skip mode last night. It's not on the priority update list either.

    I emailed Margret over the weekend and had Skipmode on my OTA on Monday. Very nice, thanks Margret!

    My Roamio OTA got Skip Mode last night, works very well. I see it available for most shows I had already recorded, some showed the tag a few hours after the update. It works from my Mini though I had to reboot it. I did not put my TSN on the list to get early update.

    Still waiting here Roamio OTA. Such a strange update we are getting. We get an e-mail telling us we have a new feature, but we don't have that feature.
    Someone should go back to marketing school. If I did something like that at my office I'd get reprimanded. Or they would simply replace me.
    I wonder how many customer service calls they are getting asking how to access a feature they were e-mailed that they have?

    No silicone and unshaven SM, no need to call Margret.

    Sorry.. couldnt resist. :D

    I only have one of my 3 on skip. Waiting for a immaculate, virgin, pure conception of Skip too.
