My experience is that Channel 10 works perfectly, channel 2 works
perfectly (for skipping tails of other shows, news breaks, and show
promotions), SBS works perfectly (or at least it did, but now Top Gear
has moved, I don't watch much SBS), Channel 9 works occasionally, and
Channel 7 barely works at all.
I'm using All Methods + Strict detection
