    Hi All,

    I haven't actually tried how it looks with MP 2, but at least with MP 1 it's sometimes difficult to know if skipping to the next timeline marker moved to the correct position when using ComSkip. Since commercial detection is not perfect, sometimes it happens that I accidentally skip way too far forward and it kind of spoils the experience. If MP would show a quick notification like "Skipped +5:30" I would know that it only skipped one commercial break, and if it would show "Skipped +20:30" I would immediately know that it went too far and I need to rewind about 15 minutes. Likewise when going back it could display "Skipped -5:30".
