Does anyone know if there have been any changes to the effectiveness
of the flagging? In Australia it's a bit hit and miss. I think it
would be fair to say I can never record a programme with perfect
commercial flagging. It either misses one or two ad breaks or it fails
to detect the end of a break or it detects the end of the break too

I have a feeling that my results used to be better when I was using
analogue bt8x8 cards. Since I moved onto DVB-T cards it doesn't seem
to be quite as good - but it's just a feeling and I have no hard
evidence to back that up.
