Not sure, but for my case, I can easily make sure all record rules 
including the Default don't request commercial flagging. Since 
commercial flagging is not perfect I've gotten use to using the remote 
to skip commercials just as fast as backing up when the commflag skips 
go too far or not far enough. Personal preference. The wife is happy 
with this setup as well.

I was just noticing this on a test system and forgot what I had done on 
the productions system to make this work. I taking a note now :-)
