SkipMode with your TiVo VOX Remote:
Your voice can now enable TiVo’s SkipMode feature. Only with TiVo can you tell your remote to “Skip It” and you can skip entire commercial breaks. No more waiting for your recorded show to resume or fumbling to fast forward through the commercial breaks. SkipMode works with the top 20 live TV channels, including ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox and more. The next time you want to skip the commercials, grab your VOX remote, press the blue microphone button and just say so.
With Automatic SkipMode, commercials on SkipMode enabled shows will be skipped without having to press the SKIP or D button on the remote.
