Commercial "Detection" is performed by the backend.  Commercial "Skip"
is performed by the frontend using the information detected by the
commercial detection that the backend ran.  So, in the MediaMVP's
case, the frontend (aka MediaMVP) doesn't have the necessary feature
to use the information detected by the backend.  The shows are still
flagged (in the recordedmarkup table in the database), the MediaMVP
just doesn't ?can't? take advantage of the flagging info in order to
skip commercials.
