    That link has too many HTTP's in it. And even when I take an HTTP out it still doesn't work for me.


    None of my NBC programs have had skip mode lately. I wonder what that's all about? Very frustrating.

    CBS has been my most intermittent. NBC has been my most reliable. I does seem to me to be a regional problem, but I have no evidence to prove it.

    No SkipMode on Shades of Blue -NBC- back on Thursday, 3/10, :eek: and none for The Family -ABC-on Sunday, 3/13 :confused: .... but at least I am thankful that The Colony now appears to have SkipMode. :up:

    I have Fios in Oreland, PA, a suburb of Philly.

    Skip Mode for me has been very erratic (on basic or lifeline cable with Comcast...Roamio basic)

    -When it first came out TMZ would have Skip mode on it, then it disappeared for a while, then it came back for 2 days, and now its gone again. Its on at 6:30 on local FOX station
    -Last night I recorded both episodes of "Little Big Shots" since I missed the 1st airing. The 1st episode had no skip mode, the 2nd one did.
    -syndicated shows like Friends and 2 1/2 men (which are on an Independent and CW respectively) its hit and miss. Sometimes the 1st show wont have it but the show right after it will. Some days neither will.
    -The Victoria Secret Swimwear Special on CBS didnt either.

    I'm going to try a reboot and see what happens

    I didn't have it on the latest episode of Elementary either. I think I've had it before.

    And I tried it anyway, and it didn't work. :(

    For me here in Phoenix, NBC has not had any SM for almost a week.

    Blindspot on NBC-NY had skip mode yesterday. So maybe something was fixed. Not sure why it's so inconsistent, though.

    Of all the episodes of Jeopardy I have recorded, only the ones that aired on a Friday have skip mode. Weird.

    Does anyone know why on the Mini it will show skip mode available for a program, then when the program is played the skip mode icons don't show and skip mode doesn't work? Is the Mini supposed to support skip mode if it shows up in the program list?

    It's a bug - currently SKIP on Mini only works when streaming directly from SKIP enabled host machine. If the Mini is tied to a different host it doesn't work.

    Robert (‎3‎/‎18‎/‎2016‎ ‎3‎:‎41‎:‎33‎ ‎PM): For Skip to work, the recordings have to be done on certain channels
    Robert (‎3‎/‎18‎/‎2016‎ ‎3‎:‎41‎:‎33‎ ‎PM): Here is a link for the channels
    Robert (‎3‎/‎18‎/‎2016‎ ‎3‎:‎41‎:‎33‎ ‎PM): https://www.tivo.com/
    Me (‎3‎/‎18‎/‎2016‎ ‎3‎:‎41‎:‎37‎ ‎PM): That isn't the issue. I record a lot of shows on all the major networks. no icons!
    Me (‎3‎/‎18‎/‎2016‎ ‎3‎:‎41‎:‎54‎ ‎PM): You aren't being very helpfiul.

    Me (‎3‎/‎18‎/‎2016‎ ‎3‎:‎44‎:‎21‎ ‎PM): Are you able to fix this or just provide excuses. I use the TiVo community and there was a developer that was fixing it on an individual basis which doesn't seem very efficient.
    Robert (‎3‎/‎18‎/‎2016‎ ‎3‎:‎45‎:‎14‎ ‎PM): Yes there has been an issue, where some of the Roamios are setup correctly, but Skip is still not functioning
    Robert (‎3‎/‎18‎/‎2016‎ ‎3‎:‎45‎:‎14‎ ‎PM): I apologize
    Me (‎3‎/‎18‎/‎2016‎ ‎3‎:‎45‎:‎42‎ ‎PM): Who, how or when can this be fixed?
    Robert (‎3‎/‎18‎/‎2016‎ ‎3‎:‎46‎:‎10‎ ‎PM): TiVo is aware of "issues" on some device....A fix is underway
    Robert (‎3‎/‎18‎/‎2016‎ ‎3‎:‎46‎:‎46‎ ‎PM): Try this go to AMC
    Robert (‎3‎/‎18‎/‎2016‎ ‎3‎:‎49‎:‎18‎ ‎PM): Still there?
    Me (‎3‎/‎18‎/‎2016‎ ‎3‎:‎49‎:‎59‎ ‎PM): no. computer and tv in different rooms. What do I need to do?
    Robert (‎3‎/‎18‎/‎2016‎ ‎3‎:‎50‎:‎42‎ ‎PM): Go to AMC, push the record button
    Me (‎3‎/‎18‎/‎2016‎ ‎3‎:‎51‎:‎08‎ ‎PM): Does skip work on amc 24 hours?
    Robert (‎3‎/‎18‎/‎2016‎ ‎3‎:‎53‎:‎15‎ ‎PM): No there is a limited window
    Me (‎3‎/‎18‎/‎2016‎ ‎3‎:‎53‎:‎40‎ ‎PM): it's 3:53pm local time.
    Robert (‎3‎/‎18‎/‎2016‎ ‎3‎:‎55‎:‎37‎ ‎PM): In the KDB here ...it shows
    Robert (‎3‎/‎18‎/‎2016‎ ‎3‎:‎55‎:‎37‎ ‎PM): The shows that will be SkipMode-enabled are those that appear during the most common recording hours: seven days a week, between the hours of 4:00 pm and midnight (12:30 am for late night talk shows airing on ABC, NBC and CBS). Recorded shows with the SkipMode feature appear in your MyShows lists with a SKIP icon.
    Robert (‎3‎/‎18‎/‎2016‎ ‎3‎:‎56‎:‎14‎ ‎PM): Pacific Time
    Robert (‎3‎/‎18‎/‎2016‎ ‎3‎:‎56‎:‎51‎ ‎PM): So give it a few minutes....start a recording...
    Robert (‎3‎/‎18‎/‎2016‎ ‎3‎:‎56‎:‎51‎ ‎PM): or popular shows, our team usually has SkipMode information updated for a show within 1 hour of the show ending.
    Robert (‎3‎/‎18‎/‎2016‎ ‎3‎:‎57‎:‎01‎ ‎PM): But there has been an issue on some Roamios
    Robert (‎3‎/‎18‎/‎2016‎ ‎3‎:‎57‎:‎10‎ ‎PM): Which version of AMC is being used?
    Me (‎3‎/‎18‎/‎2016‎ ‎3‎:‎57‎:‎49‎ ‎PM): This is getting no where. I give up.

    The host is a Skip enabled Roamio.

    Right, but is the show you are streaming on that host or a different machine?

    I am trying to directly stream shows with the skip icon from the TiVo Roamio they are recorded on. Via either LAN or MoCA connection.

    Works for me: Mini V1 streaming from SKIP-enabled Roamio Pro which is the Mini host. If I set the Mini host as my Elite it will still show SKIP icons for Roamio Pro shows but SKIP doesn't work.

    Is that TiVo Roamio the Mini's host? In other words, when you go into Settings and set the host DVR for the Mini, was it to that same TiVo Roamio or a different one?
