Thank you!  It wasn't the key bindings but rather my .lircrc file 
settings.  I tried skipping via the keyboard again to make sure and it 
worked fine (with Z).  I had the same remote key mapped to H (PREVCHAN ) 
and Z (SKIPCOMMERCIAL).  Apparently, during recording playback, PREVCHAN 
has the same effect as JUMPPREV.  Since both keys were being sent, it 
switched back on the second press and then skipped the commercial!  I 
mapped Z to a different remote key and problem is solved.  Now for the 
clicks and pops on the remote FE....
