United States - Comcast Xfinity

Seems alright, doesn't find commercials for HBO and all others are good.

I'll come back and update if I ever need to.

Thanks for posting this. Question: Why do you disable heuristics? I'm not smart, so you don't need to be too complex, but I'd think enabling ALL heuristics would be better...

Sometime the heuristics trigger for the wrong reason, they are intended to solve weird corner cases so if you do not need them its often safe to disable them

I've been very happy with these settings and feel they should work with any provider. I haven't updated comskip in a while, but plan on doing so and will update the OP is needed.

Thanks!

Curious if your comskip file has been updated since 2015? I tried it out on NBC the good place and it did cut out a little before the commercial break. Thanks!
