[mythtv-users] Commercials are never detected

They aren't being detected at all. Shows that were flagged before I started having this problem still skip commercials fine. Oddly, when I hit "z" when playing back a problem recording it says "Not flagged" although when highlighting the show in the recordings section, it has the icon that shows it has been flagged. In mythweb after the the flagging job has run it always says "0 commercial breaks found." I have not tried turning on "Strict Commercial Detection" because I'm under the impression that it typically would find less commercials when thats on (if the flagging was working in the first place). I can try turning it on if that might make a difference.

When I look at MythWeb it appears that the job was ran and completed fine. I have "All Available Methods" selected and "Strict Commercial Detection" turned off. Out of probably the 50 shows I've recorded so far not one has had a single commercial detected. I tried searching on Google and on this list but I couldn't find anyone with a similar problem. Any ideas?

Are they not being detected or are they not being skipped when played back, even though they were detected.
When you go into edit mode, do you see breaks marked on the timeline?
Have you tried turning strict detection on?
