    Why does MPEG4 matter?

    Skip mode does not work(right now) with MPEG-4 encoded channels.

    I feel I should make a forum topic just to inform people about this. I bet a lot of people on Comast are wondering why skip mode doesn't work on their cable channels.

    This episode of Castle has SkipMode here in VA with Comcast (and the 2 before it that we haven't watched yet).

    and now, to close out this discussion (for me, anyway).

    I have confirmed I do have Skip Mode on my Roamio with Comcast. Last night I got a second message announcing Skip Mode, and I noted several recorded programs with the "skip" flag. Now I'm also noticing that many programs recorded prior to last night are also flagged for "skip" I also tested and confirmed it works. Thanks, everyone for the interest and information.

    No problem with Major Crimes. E1 and E2 were enabled after I received SM since I haven't watched them yet. Last of the five will be Monday.

    Last night my Plus got it. I had to reboot the Mini for it to show up there.

    Same here. I thought I was going to be left out....but restarted my minis and all those little green stickers were there. I just tested it quickly on a "Limitless" episode and it's working.

    Well, you are all correct. SM is now taking me to the beginning of the show. The first day, it was taking me to the second segment of the show. I tried it multiple times on all of my devices and it behaved the same way. Yesterday I tried it again. Same recordings. Same devices. And now it's behaving like you describe it.

    That was an odd problem. But glad it's gone.

    I got SM on last week's Jeopardy episodes, but not this week's. Anyone else?

    I've noticed I get it, but not for several hours. We have a relatively early J here in Houston, at 3:00C. And I usually watch it shortly thereafter, so no skip. But I've noticed on my backup Roamio, which often sits for a day or two without me checking it, Jeopardy has [SKIP]. So it shows up at some point.

    I'm also in Houston, and I have quite a few episodes of Jeopardy saved up. So far, only one has skipmode. I'm on the Tivo Roamio HD. Does anyone know if the 4-10:30 window is Eastern time, or whichever time zone you live in? I didn't know if I could report Jeopardy since it comes on at 3, and since it's a syndicated program.

    AMC has a repeat of BCS just after midnight. If you try again it might get skip mode.

    Is there anything official on this, searched around and could not find any more info.. I know the Atlanta area went MPEG-4 last year (had to dump all my HD Tivo's). No SM on my Roamio or Mini's yet.. Just to verify.. are there any Comcast MPEG-4 users out there that have SM working ?

    It has been proposed that a thread should be started like: "Comcast, MPEG-4 and Skip Mode".

    I would, but I don't have Comcast or MPEG-4 or any SM problems beyond CBS Late Night.

    I went in to the Deleted Recordings to check. Strange results:

    Wed & Thur of last week, no Skip
    Fri & Sat, Skip (and Sat was a syndicated repeat)
    Mon, Tues, Wed, no Skip

    So only one new run was Skip, and that was Friday. :confused:

    This morning's recording of BCS includes SM.
