Thanks Mike,

I wasn't completely clear in my question. I wanted to set the postion to 
1 second in so that I would see the tuning info from the STB as 
verification that the channel change was successful. In hindsight the 
mention of the commercial break confused the issue.

I had thought I had seen an option in previous versions to adjust the 
position but could not find it since I upgraded however I see from the 
post that you reference that the feature to adjust the position has 
apparently been changed.
