With your TiVo remote control in hand, you can search, discover and explore endless entertainment—all in just a few clicks. Get a feel for our unique remote capabilities, like SkipMode™ and QuickMode™, to help you master your entertainment experience.


TiVo Roamio skips entire commercial breaks at the press of a button (the D button, to be exact) on certain recorded shows. A few minutes after a show has aired, you’ll see a Skip icon next to the show title in your My Shows folder when you’re able to skip commercials. When watching a Skip-eligible show, just press the D button during the commercial break and you’ll be back to enjoying your show instantly.

What channels and times are eligible for SkipMode? See complete list.




QuickMode lets you watch recorded shows and sports 30% faster than normal speed—without the sound getting squirrely on you. It’s great for getting through the dull stuff without missing any of the action. When you’re watching a recorded show, turn QuickMode on by pressing “Play,” then pressing “Select” when the TrickPlay™ bar appears.
