Just out of curiosity, are you having more problems with it not detecting
commercials, or detecting commercials that aren't there?  I've come to
realize that some of the shows I record (the Law & Orders, for example),
often skip what it thinks are commercials but aren't.  I have to turn off
commercial skip when I watch these.  I'm pretty sure I use blank frame
