A combination of both - the most annoying case is where I hit the skip 
button and it skips to the next set of commercials (after a 7 minute 
segment of the show.) I don't have automatic commercial skipping set up; 
I've just got buttons on my remote set to do it. Law & Order is one of the 
big problem shows for me - they blank the screen on a regular basis for 
scene changes.
