I just saw that on a program and it worked well.  Blue bar is program, yellow is the commercial slug. Press any speed FF and it advances to the end of the next commercial break.  Two thumbs UP.

I like it as well ... when it works.

 

We recorded Hollywood Game Night last night and then watched it.  The recording only recognized the first two commercial breaks.

What is the criterior for which shows get this feature?   The Bravo program I saw it on this afternoon is on an NBC/Comcast network.  


If a program is "live" when recorded, does the smart advance work in playback?

 

It says currently, Smart Resume is only available for top shows on NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX, CW, Bravo, HGTV, Discovery, MTV and TLC.

Others, please post where it worked for you, in order to get a better sample of how widespread the feature works.

Thanks for the link RobertWy.

 

I wonder if flagging commercials is done electronically or if a person is actually logging break times?

Recorded "The Last Days of John F Kennedy Jr" last night on ABC.....2 hr show from 9-11pm.  When watching it this afternoon, Smart Resume continued to FF close to 60 seconds into the program after the commercial break ended.  First time I have had a problem with Smart Resume.....has worked fine on all other show where available.

i really like smart resume. it just appeared. i see not all channels have it. is this done by comcast. i'm reading that comcast made the decision to remove it.  that is so sad.  all the programs i watched are recorded first, i sit there with remote in hand trying to time when to stop. i actually have injured my hand.  please comcast make smart resume available and for all regular channels.
