If your reception is not perfect does this impact the accuracy of the skip?
If there is some residual "snow" on what would otherwise be blank frames
I could see where this would confuse the blank frame / scene change
On my system a few stations appear to allow nearly perfect comercial
break detection. Others are very hit or miss.
