You're probably better off using the new "All" method.

> 1st commercial break
>  Enter off by 25.13 seconds
>  Exit off by 19.17 seconds
> 2nd commercial break
>  Enter off by 28.62 seconds
>  Exit off by 34.68 seconds
> 3rd commercial break
>  Enter off by 49.70 seconds
>  Exit off by 49.28 seconds

What kind of TV cards are you using?  It sounds like this
could be related to the fact that some recordings have show
that is recorded at one FPS while the commercials are at another
FPS.  This would account for the commercial markers being off
more and more as you get further into the recording.
