    Aaaannnnddd...It's here. Skip mode just arrived on my OTA through 'natural skipmode birth'.

    Should be fun to play with. This is an excellent additional feature and a pleasant surprise.

    We got it here in SW Florida. I didn't get the mail from Tivo until today that I have been upgraded to skip. This is by far the best Tivo feature added ever ! All my previous recordings had the green skip button. Only one show didn't have skip. That was Blindsided on CBS recorded last night. I also checked my deleted programs and they had the green skip too. After watching one recording I'm already spoiled ...........

    Just got the email, tried it, works on most, not all, shows, cool.

    ETA: this is the only hardware I've ever owned that was improved AFTER I bought it. That, I like. Maybe I'm just easily impressed.

    Got it in NC. Still shocked that they upgraded the Roamio OTA with this feature. Most of my previously recorded show now have skip.

    My Roamio (4-tuner, used for OTA) finally got SkipMode sometime last night. After trying it today, I like the convenience a lot, and it will certainly save wear and tear on my remote. But I still like QuickMode better, because that actually saves me valuable time.

    I'm in SE Ohio, but I doubt that location matters much now.

    I've had skipmode on my Roamio Pro for a couple of weeks so I got a new Roamio Plus and I'm still waiting on the Plus to get it

    Just noticed it last night on our Roamio OTA in Rockport, TX. Got the email today. Not all programs, so you might not notice it.

    My two base Roamios received skip mode today for the second time. I got skip mode early last Thursday from Margret but I never received the email and message that my Roamios were skip mode upgraded. Both of my units got the message and I received the email at noon today.

    Another thing I found out is RCN TiVos got HBO GO the same time we did and they also got the winter update when we got it also. It seems that TiVo is no longer with holding the software updates to the MSO units.

    You didn't get SkipMode twice. That message was just sent out to all Roamio users notifying them of the feature.

    Didn't get it from forced afternoon connections today but I forced connections shortly before prime time and my virgin SkipMode showed up less than an hour later on both a Roamio Basic and Roamio OTA. Now I can lord my moral superiority over all those who sent Margret an e-mail :D. I received the generic February news e-mail last week.
