i had same issues on commercial skips. i found that comskip works much
better and you can create different 'ini' files for different channels.
i use mostly ota and cable box. i wrote a script to replace myth's
detection with comskip and spent a little time experimenting to make 3
different profiles for ini files for different channels and its working
really good for me. also comskip can do processing as the programs
record. still not perfect but very close to perfect on the
shows/channels i am using. i'm not much of bash scripting person so its
still a work in progress, but working. if anybody wants it, email me
and i'll send it. i have it set up to act as replacement for
mythcommflag or post record user job depending upon the variables. i'm
on arch linux and comskip is in the aur for arch. i assume something
similar for other distros.
