I also go for the best encoding quality and take care of the commercials
myself. Indeed a good commercial detector is in the dreams of all tv
encoders ;)

I don't think so. I don't have a real problem with the commercials when recording something. I am able to skip them using my remote (or keyboard) very easily. 
In my opinion, there are some more interesting features yet to implement. For example something like VirtualDub to skip whatever I want and to reencode offline. I would like to have something like this first...
Just my 2c...
