neIVIe515: Curious where you are for your current general INI file. Has much changed in the last couple of years since you last posted? I am currently just using the default comskip ini file. For the show, The Middle the problem I currently have is that show in generally "ends" goes into a 3-4 minute commercial break including introducing the next show, and then comes back with a 30 second final closing segment. My current ini file always deletes this. Just curious in all the work you have done if your general INI file has evolved to keep a single INI file working for most shows and not cut of on these small closing segments, or whether you have still been using a unique one for The Middle show.

I too am having issues losing the closing segments of shows like BBT or The Middle. I have been using the default comskip_donate, and have been very happy with the results except for this one issue on 30 second closing segments.

Is there a simple fix for this in the defaut .ini?

Thanks!

Change
always_keep_last_seconds=0
to
always_keep_last_seconds=300
Or whatever amount of seconds to keep at the end

I'm getting issues where the updated general is removing 2-3 seconds of the show before a commercial break. While this is good for some shows, others its quite annoying.

I changed shrink_logo=5 to 3 and now to 0. Is this the correct setting to be adjusting?
I also changed after_logo=5 to 8.

I am using Verizon FiOS as well. Appreciate your help with these ini's - have been using these for years.

If it works it must be correct, yes?
Otherwise you could prepare a relevant set of test file according to the "how to ask for help" topic and send me the zip files with information on what you want to see improved.
Preparing the test files is a lot of work though.

Doesnt seem that hard to prepare the files. I will debug a bit myself and see how I make out.

If the above doesnt fix my issues, Ill gladly run comskip in according to the "how to ask for help" topic

As per this thread, changing from 5 to shrink_logo=0 helped with the start/end of shows before commercials from being cut off:
Too early cuts: http://www.kaashoek.com/comskip/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1836#p8572

This is what it should do
as you now get cuts exactly on where the logo comes/go's (when you enable logo based cutting) you will notice that when you shrink logo you may remove show.
So when you enable logo based cutting you better set shrink_logo=0

So I officially moved from Windows Media Center (WMC) recording using MCARDS to HDHomerun Prime using MCARDS. Knowing WMC is a dead feature the next best thing for me was HDHomerun Prime. I now have 3 HDHomerun Prime devices with MCARDS providing the cable subscription through Verizon FiOS. This gives me the capability to record 3 channels per device so a total of 9 tuners now. The new HDHomerun Primes device are at 6 tuners per device so i will consider upgrading when they are available. I'm not a huge fan of the HDHomerun DVR service but still subscribe. Its recording capabilities get more shows then i would want when it comes to only new showings. I've been using Plex and subscribed to the service also but did the forever price. Now Plex uses the HDHomerun's for Live TV streaming and recording. It also has the ability to remove commercials using the default comskip.ini. This brought me back and I wanted to see if I could build a default comskip.ini that worked with most shows. Plex records the show, removes the commercials and post them for viewing through SMART TVs, Fire TV devices, etc. The user defined conskip.ini gets placed in the DVR directory that you have to create under C:\Users\<account>\AppData\Local\Plex Media Server\DVR. I've been working with this general comskip.ini and instead of listing which shows it works with I'll list shows it has not worked great with so far.

So I haven't officially tried this configuration yet, but I was wondering what your experience on end-of-show recording cuts have been? One show I've seen issues with, no matter what I try, is, "the goldbergs", there is generally a segment at the end that has some historic footage that the episode is based off of, and it gets cut-out as a commercial. I was wondering if you have had any luck with it, or with something similar with another show? I'm going to give this config a try, and see what my results are!

Goldbergs is ABC. So the only thing i've done with this is AFV. Haven't had the tailing issue you are referring to. I've just recently had issue with Midnight Texas and it would remove a couple seconds before the commercial. Its coming on Friday so I'll see what I can find out with the new episode.

So I haven't officially tried this configuration yet, but I was wondering what your experience on end-of-show recording cuts have been? One show I've seen issues with, no matter what I try, is, "the goldbergs", there is generally a segment at the end that has some historic footage that the episode is based off of, and it gets cut-out as a commercial. I was wondering if you have had any luck with it, or with something similar with another show? I'm going to give this config a try, and see what my results are!

So I officially moved from Windows Media Center (WMC) recording using MCARDS to HDHomerun Prime using MCARDS. Knowing WMC is a dead feature the next best thing for me was HDHomerun Prime. I now have 3 HDHomerun Prime devices with MCARDS providing the cable subscription through Verizon FiOS. This gives me the capability to record 3 channels per device so a total of 9 tuners now. The new HDHomerun Primes device are at 6 tuners per device so i will consider upgrading when they are available. I'm not a huge fan of the HDHomerun DVR service but still subscribe. Its recording capabilities get more shows then i would want when it comes to only new showings. I've been using Plex and subscribed to the service also but did the forever price. Now Plex uses the HDHomerun's for Live TV streaming and recording. It also has the ability to remove commercials using the default comskip.ini. This brought me back and I wanted to see if I could build a default comskip.ini that worked with most shows. Plex records the show, removes the commercials and post them for viewing through SMART TVs, Fire TV devices, etc. The user defined conskip.ini gets placed in the DVR directory that you have to create under C:\Users\<account>\AppData\Local\Plex Media Server\DVR. I've been working with this general comskip.ini and instead of listing which shows it works with I'll list shows it has not worked great with so far.

Not working:
Live PD Cam; some commercials there are no black screen transitions
