I have the same issue and see the amber marks where it should skip the commercials but it didn't work.

when the commercial(s) begin do you press the fast forward button on the remote? If so, does it start to fast forward? does the visible fast forward show the next non-commecial segment and then rewinds to the end of the last commercial and start playing the next segment of the recorded show? Or?

I press the FFWD and it just keeps going past the mark. Isn't it supposed to automatically stop?

Yes, if the timeline has the color coded marks it should stop.  It is an option, though.  Make sure it is still turned on in settings>preferences>general.

Glad I am not the only one who is noticing that its not always working as it should.  At first we thought it was just ABC and CBS but seems to be more than that. I sure wish someone could explain this.
