I haven't noticed this but I skip commercials manually or by 30 second 
jumps.  Commercial detection isn't good enough for automatic skipping. 
In fact I haven't experienced any problems at all. This is likely 
because I only watch recorded programs and don't watch programs sped up 
so not a good tester. I'm also using the latest android version on 
Nvidia shield. My wife loves the shield frontend, she finds it much 
easier to use.  She would never use the frontend on a separate computer 
by herself but now does with the shield.  Thanks all around for you 
geniuses that are making this a better experience for us.
