[mythtv-users] Commercial Auto-Skip Frequently Ceases to Function

I've been building a MythTV box over the past week. Having it during the
Olympic coverage has been fantastic since we have a good, solid 1080i OTA
signal to work with.
I've found commercial skipping to be dead-on reliable thus far and have
been using it with auto-skip enabled. A couple of times - including during
the program that I am watching as I write this - the auto-skip just stops
The flags are there and are fine. I can manually skip back and forth
between the flags without flaw. It just won't auto-skip all of the sudden. I
even restarted mythfrontend and resumed where I left off... no go. Ads play
and will keep playing unless I hit the forward skip and it leaps to
precisely the end of the ad segment.
I've not yet figured out what causes this spontaneous failure of
auto-skip, but was curious if others were experiencing it.
I can confirm that auto-skip is turned on and, even right now as I watch a
program where it is failing, I can see that auto-skip is properly checked in
The only example I found with someone reporting this (almost a precise
match to my experience) can be found here:
but nobody ever replied to him. That was last July.
