Hmmm... sounds like you've changed your keybindings so that 'Z' is bound 
to TOGGLEEDIT instead of SKIPCOMMERCIAL.  You can check this with 
MythWeb if you're not sure.

The new behavior was part of Isaac's recent 'OSD Menu' commit.  I think 
the idea is now that most functions in LiveTV or WatchingRecording mode 
should be accessible with just 5 keys:  Menu, Enter/Select, Up, Down, 
Left, Right.  Still a work in progress, I think, but you can already 
see that the PIP functions are accessible via the OSD menu in LiveTV.
