Commercial Break Viewer

If you are familiar with SageTV, you probably know that the software can show where commercial breaks are in the video timeline. It looks like this functionality will soon be brought to Windows Media Center courtesy of Mark Terborg and his Recorded TV HD plug-in. It looks awesome!

The Commercial Break Viewer is included in the latest beta here:

It should be in the official release version soon.


If you tried the latest beta earlier today, please try again. I made a silly mistake right before I posted it. It should be fixed now. Sorry.

Recorded TV HD is only $19.99 for a single license and $39.99 for an entire household.

Thanks Mike.  I forgot to point that out.

From what it looks like you also need Show Analyzer, which is also not free...looks very nice!


FYI.... This has been officially released: Recorded TV HD with Commercial Break Viewer
