Another method of commercial detection I'd noticed might work (and I'm sure
someone's thought of) is looking for changes in the video's resolution or
aspect ratio.  In most broadcasts, that doesn't happen, but during HD OTA
(at least in the US) the resolution changes when going to commercial breaks,
as the commercials are still in 4:3 and SD instead of 16:9 and HD.
