Are there any dvd or recorders that have built-in programming similar to replay tv that allows you to automatically skip the commercials either when recording or playing back the recorded show? This is such a handy feature that I wouldn't want to get a recorder that couldn't somehow do it.

The Panny DVD recorders can't skip while recording, but can during playback using the "CM Skip" (commercial skip) feature. It isn't always accurate, but comes pretty close most times.

I believe PatsWonSB meant to say there is NO intelligent commercial detection.


I mainly watch recordings of pro football and find the 1 minute CM skip to work quite well. When play stops and I can tell they are going to go to commercial, I press CM Skip twice and behold! Back at the game and ready for the next snap. At end-of-the-quarter breaks I use three taps. After touchdowns I sometimes give it 4 taps. This skips past the kickoff but also the commercials following the kickoff, and I'm back again to the start of the next possesion. Very cool and handy feature.
