I've used 3 different configs, including the default and it gets cut down to about 3 minutes. What info can I provide to help troubleshoot?

Have you tried using the settings I posted in my thread? I just tested with the Big Bang episode from Tuesday 10-17 and, while not a total success, it did cut out all commercials except for a few short network promos, and I didn't lose any of the show. Just out of curiosity, try my INI and see if you get any better results.

Also, may I ask how you review results for testing? While I run comskip via MCEBuddy for the actual removal of commercials from the video, I do my testing/review with the ComskipGUI program. Do you read through the log files to see why certain blocks are scored as they are, and if so, do you fully understand it? I don't mean to be condescending, because honestly I don't fully understand everything that is going on in the logs either, but reading through them has helped me to better understand why some shows work better than others, and what settings to tweak for better results. I can try to explain more, but perhaps you get more out of it than me already in which case, I wouldn't be much help. :D
