Summary: Skipping commercials should also work in MyTV, not just in MyVideos.

Description: Currently in MediaPortal 1.0, skipping commercials only works when watching recordings through MyVideos. It doesn't work if you watch your recording through MyTV. This is counter-intuitive. It would be great if commercial skipping could also be activated in MyTV. I believe this used to work in previous versions of MediaPortal, before 1.0.

    Is this singleseat or multiseat.

    It definitely does work singleseat.

    As always supply logs, set MP to debug mode in config.

    apparently not so obvious :)

    My bad, I thought I was stating an obvious point. In the manual page for Comskip there's a mention about MyVideos and MyTV and I found a post in the forum also, confirming someone had to use MyVideos recently. In my personal setup (single seat) there's also no commercial skipping available in MyTV, automatic nor manual.

    I'll check out the problem further, see if there's any way to fix it.

    I've been using version 1.2.2.0 for years and have found no need to upgrade to newer version. I hate it that skins loose compatibility with almost every new version. And new skins are too 'fancy' for my taste. I use a customized version of the default wide skin with only Videos and TV in the main menu. I use mediaportal for recording...

    Would have been cool, but no. For this, and a few other reasons, I moved on to Channels DVR. More or less the same idea though, as I'm using Channels as a backend for Plex with xTeVe as a virtual tuner. I've lost touch somewhat with what's going on with MePo, but Channels is being very actively developed (which is key, as there's a...
