Okay, I'm not trying to make any money, not trying to sell anything, and not starting a KickStarter project. This is just a project idea for a hobby enthusiast with more time and smarter than me. With the rollout of SkipMode, it would seem trivial to put something together to make it automatic. Using something like a Raspberry PI or Arduino, all someone would need to do is some clever programming. With SkipMode there is a very unique ding-a-ling notification in the audio. That could be sampled and used as a reference, and compared to a tap off of the live audio. When detected, an IR signal for the 'D' or Channel Up key could be sent out from an IR emitter. This hypothetical device would always be "listening" for the unique notification sound, and when heard automatically skip the commercial break for the user. Maybe someone has a more elegant solution. It seems trivial. Am I wrong? Anyone out there feel froggy?
