I'll bet the logo detection stuff does not work very well these days as 
the logo's seem pretty transparent and tend to be in different 
locations. ( My plasma screen is at least thankful for that - no logo 
burn in)

Looking forward to the new commercial detection stuff that is being 
worked on at the moment.
Perhaps in .21 we may see better results.
