Using WMC7 USA OTA with DVRMSTB, comskip works great with 30 min comedies, but doesn't find commercials on ABC and CBS nightly news.
Since I am a newbie I wish to try someone else's ini. Would I open ini with notepad and replace text with text that is posted on this forum? Can I have multiple ini files for different shows?
I found this downloadable file on the mcebuddy forum "USA ABC Wilky13.ini"
; working great (maybe a little more padding?)
; See comskip.txt in the distribution zip file for many settable parameters, read manual.html, tuning.html and debugwindow.html for how to tune and debug comskip

I would replace the default ini with this then copy the default ini back if it didn't work correct?
Or is there a recommended ini on this forum for USA OTA ABC news?
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
