I've seen that happen only rarely, but most often when the video image
is fairly dark.
My biggest annoyance, though, is that it leaves off the last few seconds
of video before skipping and starts a few seconds late at the new place
almost every time on almost every channel. It often cuts off important
"last words" before commercials and stuff. So I usually don't enable
the detection at playback time.
