I would not trust an ads auto skipper until broadcasters were required to embed something to signal the start/stop of ads and that be enforced by withdraw of broadcast license if not followed. And that will never happen.

Advertises do anything and everything to get their ads watched even to the point of taking companies to court to remove ads skipping systems. If want to save a recording without adds, better to just edit them out by hand.

I use the jump ahead to skip comercials and then rw back a bit because it never seems to be the same jump amount. Sometimes they have more comercials and now I'm also noticing that skip seems to not always skip the same amount. Sometimes it only skips ahead a few seconds. I've had to skip twice to get through the same comercial at times.

When using the skip forward / backward buttons, eg to jump through the
ads, it would be convenient if the skip backward button skipped
backwards 30 seconds instead of 60, on the first press. Subsequent
skip backwards would skip 60 seconds as normal.

This would make it easier to narrow down the start of a program after
skipping ads.

Binary search has already been patched into some distributions with the

IIRC, mythtv had a feature built-in that skips ads automagically.
Maybe a plugin could be written for VDR which provides the same
function.  Would be very cool and resolve the problem with seeking
h264 recordings where the still frame will remain unchanged for
several seconds and by the time it does change, its seeked several
minutes.  So with h264 ffw/rew you either seek no where or too far.
It's pretty bad unfortunately.
