The only commercial detection that is working sucessfully for me in
the UK is the aspect ratio change that happens on certain channels
(Five, The Simpsons, for example) whereby the show is transmitted in
4:3 with the commercials in 16:9

The strange thing is, when I used to record shows with my PVR250 the
commercial detection was very good. When I switched to DVB it never
got it right ?? I thought that the cleaner signal would have improved
its accuracy, obviously I was wrong ;)
