I wasn't completely clear in my question. I wanted to set the postion to
1 second in so that I would see the tuning info from the STB as
verification that the channel change was successful. In hindsight the
mention of the commercial break confused the issue.
I had thought I had seen an option in previous versions to adjust the
position but could not find it since I upgraded however I see from the
post that you reference that the feature to adjust the position has
apparently been changed.
