On my Comcast-provided HD DVR, there is a button for skipping forward 5 minutes, another for skipping backwards 5 minutes. For commercial breaks, I usually just FF2 until I notice the show has picked up again, and then hit the back-25-seconds button if I don't land at the end of the commercial break. (There is no corresponding skip-25-seconds button.)
Live watching? The majority of my live watching is when I am watching a recorded show and fall asleep for long enough that the show I was watching had played to its end, timed out waiting for me to decide to keep it (fortunately, if it times out, it keeps it), and then it will display the channel the DVR primary tuner just happens to be tuned to. If I intend to watch a show, I always set it up to record that show.
