You could hit E to enter edit mode, Z to import the commercial breaks
as found, and then edit them there.  It will place you at your current
place in the recording, you could hit pageup to go back to the last
break, and then skip ahead til the end of the commercial and and a new
break...... just manually fix the mis-read by the scanner basically.
