Yeah, it works almost perfect for most shows my wife and I record.
That's part of the reason I haven't been highly motivated to enhance
the current code so it's coming along slower than the initial detection
coding I did.  My blacks come out very well, maybe amp I have on the line
helps eliminate fuzzy blacks and helps make them more consistent.  I
do plan on adding true "blank" detection code at some point and not just
"black" frame detection as it really is now.

:)  When I typed my last reply to that the scheduler thread, I had originally
put in an example like this from "Friends" which my wife records, but
figured it wasn't a big deal since I can fixup the minor annoyances like that
with a sql script that runs after mythfilldatabase every night. :)
