OK, I have just changed my settings to "Method = Blank Frame" and I have 
disabled "Skip blank frames".  I will see how that works for the next 
couple of recordings.  I will leave "Merge short commercials" at "0" for 
now.  I don't like automatic commercial skipping, partic. now, as I did 
have it enabled a long time ago and just found that when the commercial 
detection wasn't 100% accurate for that particular recording, it of 
course skipped over way too much.

I will report back if still an issue, but input from others still 
appreciated :-)
