[mythtv-users] Commercial skipping issue

I run a Mythbuntu system, and I am not sure if this is an issue with
Mythbuntu or with the MythTV.
A couple months ago, I upgraded my Mythbuntu 9.10 system to 10.04. I
did an "in-place' upgrade as opposed to a fresh install. Prior to the
upgrade, with only the occasional exception, commercial skipping was
fairly flawless (I would estimate 90-95% accuracy). Since the upgrade,
when I press the "skip" button to skip past the commercials, it skips
way too far (about half-way into next scene after the commercial break,
I would guesstimate; I generally have to hit the back button quite a bit)
The upgrade to Mythbuntu 10.04 upgraded MythTV to 0.23, so that is why I
am not sure if this is an issue with Mythbuntu or MythTV.
As far as I can tell, my commercial skip options did not change. They
Commercial Flagging Method: All Available Methods
Strict Commercial Detection (not enabled)
Default Transcoder: Autodetect
Deferral days for Auto-Transcode jobs: 0
Automatically Skip Commercials: Off
Commercial Skip Auto-Rewind Amount: 0
Commercial Skip Notify Amount: 0
Maximum commercial skip (in seconds): 3600
Merge short commercial breaks (in seconds): 0
Skip blank frames after commercials (enabled)
I have tried changing the "Commercial Flagging Method" to each of the
different ones available, but that does not seem to make any difference.
I have also tried enabling "Strict Commercial Detection", but that
does not make any difference either.
Any help you could provide on this would be appreciated.
