[mythtv-users] Automatic Commercial Detection - how to get it

Why not feed all things that we think important to commercial detection
into a feed forward neural network. The network could be trained on
shows that the user has checked.

What parameters could be useful as inputs?

Some of the UK channel change aspect ratio (for digital terrestrial 
broadcasts) when going to commercials and this gives me a green flash on

playback.  I guess checking for aspect ratio changes would be a pretty 
reliable commercial detection method for the channels that do this.
