    I was thinking about getting a BOLT so that we could have the commercial skip thingy, but then I noticed that this feature was added to the one we have. Has anyone else noticed this?

    Bolt owner here. Quickmode and commercial skip were Bolt-first features that during the Bolt's initial release TiVo promised would come to the Roamio's and such in eventual software upgrades. I like the quickmode for football games. Commercial skip is fantastic, I just wish it worked on more than primetime shows.

    Roamio with 2 minis all lifetime, I see the skip function. No need to upgrade for me.

    Look into a Magnovox or channel master recorder. No monthly fees.
    I use mine to record broadcast tv of which there are about 30 channels in the Chicago area.

    TiVo has a Ota recorder to use with antenna. TiVo is worth every $ period (lifetime) that is pay once and be done.

    Channel skip was added recently on my Roamio Pro.
    I use the hell out of it when watching my Walking Dead episodes.
    Love it.
    BTW, channel skip aids greatly in copying commercial free archives of TV episodes to my computer using a Hauppauge HDPVR. :up:
