    I've never compared CC on SNL for East and West Coast but I could see how it might be done in real time on East and West Coast as Survivor is, which might prevent SM depending on Coast TiVo used for source edits (assume it is East Coast).

    My GF said that Skipmode showed up on her Roamio Basic a few days ago. She said she loves it.

    There's no hidden question. There's no lawsuit. Right now, TiVo's SkipMode is just a pimple on the elephant's butt. Hardly anyone knows it's there. But if they get sued, suddenly the entire world is looking at it. The last thing any of these third parties want to do is draw attention to a feature that barely affects them.

    Oh, and there's no basis for a lawsuit, but that rarely matters. :rolleyes:

    Quit stirring up FUD.

    I got it on my Roamio and I already love it. 30 sec skipping wasn't so annoying until you don't have to do it anymore.

    I just hope my Minis will get it soon as well.

    I guess I need to reprogram my Harmony remote with the D button. Or the channel up button I guess. Hope it goes smoothly.

    You don't need to reprogram your remote. Just hit channel up, which should already be mapped to the channel up command on the remote.

    Oh. So it's D or channel up? I guess I need to research a bit more. :)

    Correct. Channel down takes you back also. My channel up/down is in good condition since, like my TV's speakers, its never been used before. :)

    All you have to do is restart your minis then they will have it too. Either restart through the help menu or pull the power.

    You don't have to reprogram the Harmony remote. The channel up - down is already there when you have the skip mode available. You don't need the D button.

    Still waiting on a Roamio+ in Orlando FL on Bright House. I must be at the very bottom of the list.

    It's like dodgeball in junior high.

    Still waiting too on my Roamio + and Mini.

    Good thing I just found out about this feature coming only a few days ago so the wait doesn't seem so long.

    We got skipmode on Saturday. Our Roamios (plus and OTA) and Gen 2 Minis didn't require a reboot. Our original Gen 1 Minis required a reboot.

    Skip showed up today on my Roamio Plus and mini here in Houston, TX. What a great feature to have added!

    I have a message on my TiVo saying I now have SkipMode.

    But I have zero skip icons in Now Playing.

    :( ?
