I use autoskip with relatively good success.  Sometimes it'll skip into 
the program and I'll miss like 10 minutes.  the limit of 3 minutes in 
0.20 should help fix that.  For specific shows it will never be able to 
detect the commercials properly.  For some shows like the daily show it 
will always have  about 90% accuracy for me.
