Commercial flagging does not work in real time. Given the nature of
it, I can't imagine it ever will. The simple work-around to this
problem is to watch LiveTV delayed for about 15-20 (or more depending
on the length of your show) minutes so the commflag can do its thing
and you'll miss the commercials that way.
