I'm thinking 2-3 levels:

	- global auto-skip.  This would be either on or off.  This would be
	  in the main setup screen.
	- channel auto-skip.  This would be tri-state, on/off/default.  Default
	  would indicate use global setting.  This could be on the channel
	  set screen.
	- show auto-skip.  This would be tri-state as well.  If set to default
	  MythTV would first look at the default for the channel and if that
	  was default it would look at the system default.

The show auto-skip setting could be set when you selected a show to record.
It would default to 'default' of course so the user doesn't have to
do anything special if they already have their global and channel auto-skip
settings set.
