I don't use commercial skip, but I've just spent some time in the 
Frontend Setup screens, initially without finding this.  Not the first 
time I've been lost there.  Perhaps the problem is that there are 
multiple 'General' screens.  I wasn't using an Android FE but I don't 
think that would be different.

Frontend Setup > Video > Playback >  Commercial Skip  is probably what 
you want to change.

But there's also

Frontend Setup > Video > General > General(Jobs) which tweaks the actual 
detection, and IIRC somewhere in mythtv-setup that enables it.
