Yeah, I seem to get good results on Channel 7 Two (but not 7) and
reasonable results on Channel 10. Channel 9 it seems to get the ads,
but also significant chunks of the program, so that's not so good.

For some reason I also get a large number of programs where Commercial
Flagging has failed entirely - it runs, it completes, and it finds no
ads at all.
