I get pretty good results in Australia.  My setup is DVB-T Digital.
It is not that good that I would set auto-skip on, however, the problem 
is mostly that it misses marking the commercial

I have unchecked "strict commercial detection" which improved the 
detection.  I have set for commercial "notification 3 seconds early".
I am pretty happy with the results.  As I watch TV, if I get the 
commercial warning message that says 2 or 3 minutes of detected, then 
shortly after I see the beginning of the commercial break, then I know I 
can safely hit the commercial skip button. Since taking off "strict 
commercial detection" approximately 4 out of 5 breaks are detected.
