Every so often, I have a recorded show that won't skip commercials. When this occurs, I've been moving the show along with the comskip files to my videos folder, where it then skips commercials as expected.
I am playing the shows on my MVP, and using the '999' code on the remote, I can see the commercials toggle in and out of the timeline.
I have had limited success with hitting the "play" button on the remote to skip to the end of a set of marked commercials, but I think this only works when comskip is toggled off and the commercial is playing. Either way, it does not do anything on a recording when comskip is toggled on, and the commercial does not skip.
The fact that moving the file with it's comskip .txt files to the video folder allows the comskip to work, suggests that somewhere something is being stored in the database for the recording that is blocking the comskip from working.
My question is, how to you get comskip to work on a recording once it is in this state? Is there some toggle like the '999' code that will get it working again?
