The problem is this is one of those slippery settings slopes 
(SSS for short) :)

Some people want auto-skip on per channel,
some people want auto-skip on per scheduled recording,
some people want auto-skip on per playback group,
some people want auto-skip on per program title,

Sometimes we have a hard time getting across to someone the fact
that auto-transcode has to be on for a scheduled recording and
for a recording profile, imagine how hard it would be to explain
auto-skip based in the above scenario. :)
