[mythtv-users] How reliable is Commercial skip?

I use an hdpvr, and I have to agree that over the last couple of years the
commercial skip accuracy has dropped significantly, to the point where I
have had recordings of football games on national networks flag 0
commercials. When I first started using mythtv back in 2006, commercial
flagging worked pretty well.
I decided to try the patch referenced in this thread to see if it made any
difference. The last football game I recorded found 21 commercials and only
missed 1! What a huge improvement!
The one strange thing was that the skip started about 1 second before it
should have and ended about 1 second before it should have, so you always
saw the last ¾ second or so of the last ad, and it skipped before the
station faded to black to run the ads. Still, this patch has definitely
been a major improvement for me.
