    I have 2 minis, restarted both. One got Skipmode when it booted back up, the other didn't. Guess it still needs the software update.

    Good job Tivo! Another great feature to justify my roamio plus investment!
    What's next?

    TiVo is in the process of rolling it out; they predict everyone will have it by 3/10. Getting the email has nothing to do with when it appears on your Roamio; some people got the email first, then SkipMode, others (such as myself) got SkipMode some days before getting their email.

    Very true. I noticed I had it and a couple days later I got the message that I had it. Also, it seems to me that it took a day or so before all the shows had skip mode icons on them. It was like I noticed the banner when I hit fast forward and then noticed shows with skip later that night and the next day more icons.

    Wow I just got it on my Plus and was wondering why a lot of shows didn't have SM even though the network was listed. Now I know it's because Comcast converted the channels to mpeg4 a couple of months ago. Most of what we watch is on cable channels that have been converted.

    Another half-baked Tivo feature. Sigh.

    Okay, so now my Roamio says I have Skip Mode. But the 3 programs I recorded last night (on major networks) do not have skip mode icons, nor do they "skip". Does this come later, or do I have a problem?

    Question: Do you have Comcast?

    No, small cable company. Comcast is a few counties away. I'm about 80 miles from their HQ in Philly.

    It finally arrived here. IMpressive as everyone says in my quickie test. Probably will make it more painful to use 30 second skip when forced to. Sad it doesn't apply to sports or local news or Judge Judy or the oscars/grammys etc.

    Very curious to see if this feature gets the wife to skip commercials. She never bothers. I think commercials are something she doesn't mind all that much and, worst case, are an excuse to check Facebook on her phone. Actually half the tv shows themselves are an excuse for her to check Facebook. :D

    I'm not getting skip mode on "Major Crimes" or "Better Call Saul" which are both on during prime time. Is anyone getting skip mode on either of these programs?

    If you're on Comcast it could be because their MPEG-4.
