Bug Description

Binary package hint: mythtv

Commercial removal works brilliantly (set to agressive), but several of the TV stations have commercial breaks in excess of 5 minutes (they do not seem to exceed 6 minutes) which are not removed. There is a GUI setting for commercial lengths. It's allegedly measured in seconds, but the setting is 3600. 5 minutes in seconds is 300, so it's not a 10x mistake. 3600 seconds is one hour. ... the recordings which have two-three almost-6-minute breaks are about 55 minutes to start with.

Regars,
  Nicolai

AFAIK, the only 3600 commercial skip setting is for manual commercial skips. It says this in the GUI, that it does not affect auto commercial skipping. Are the entire commercial breaks not removed, or just the last minute of commercials?

The entire commercials are not removed. Automatic removal very nicely
removes 3-5 other commercial breaks, but not those that are longer than
5.0 minutes.

Thanks,
