    In the ATL
    Two things - Tivo HDs got a software update to support mpeg4 so you dumped them prematurely (but good call anyway, those boxes are ancient). Second, I'm in the ATL and got SM this week but NONE of the mpeg4 channels have shows with SM.

    There is definitely an issue with SM and mpeg4, on Comcast at least. But as mentioned it probably should go in the other thread.

    I have a Roamio Plus and two Mini's; the Plus and one Mini has the skip function the other Mini does not. I've tried reconnecting numerous times, unplugged the Mini all to no avail. The Mini's are the same model. Any ideas?

    I think I just saw the SM icon on last night's Elementary go away. Am I seeing things? I swear it was there when I checked an hour ago.

    I have it on my recording, in fact, I have SM on 10 Elementary episodes going all the way back to the Jan 7th episode, which is the oldest in my deleted "pile".

    Just got the email from TiVo that I have skip mode. I actually got awhile ago by emailing Margaret but I wonder if I would have waited until now had I not sent the email.

    One thing I've noticed is that an episode may have SkipMode enabled -- with the 'Skip' icon appearing within an episode's details page and SkipMode working properly during playback -- but the 'Skip' icon may take a while to appear at a given show's episode listing level in the UI.

    I live in ATL and I get skip mode sometimes on my roamio pro, like one day nbc shows then cbs shows but not all the time, the only channel that gets me skip is fox shows. So maybe someone can answer this I TiVo Grimm tonite no skip, but last week I had skip on that show. Same thing for shades of blue last night no skip.Are all the local channels getting skip mode or just some. I got Comcast cable. Is there a channel list of skip mode channels or is Comcast messing up the skip mode.

    Thanks

    If Comcast switched over to MPEG-4 in your area then you'll only get skip mode on local channels.

    I'm on FiOS in NY and didn't get skip mode on Shades of Blue, either, so it's probably not a local thing.

    Recorded Grimm last night on my Roamio Basic (OTA) and my Roamio Pro (Bright House - Central Florida), but neither recording has SkipMode.

    My favorite show Grimm last night didn't have skip either. I recorded it from Ft. Myers.

    It appears that I'm not getting skip on any shows on ABC network.

    Castle always works for me. There's not a lot on ABC or Fox I record.
