I have been using the HDHR for about 2 years now.  I have noticed that
some of the recent shows (in HD) are incorrectly comm flagged.
Usually it skips too early or goes beyond the end of the commercials.
Now that you mention this I have only noticed this in the past 6mo to
1 year.  Maybe coincidence but I don't think it's just you.  On the
other hand I can't say that I've noticed this problem with SD

I am using QAM sources from the cable co.  I wonder if that has
anything to do with it?  I know the quality is not as good as ATSC,
but I get more channels this way.
