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....
