Question ComSkip.ini Tuning Anyone?

I just installed kmttg 2.1j last week and have been experimenting with 2 programs that I've been meaning to play with the past few years - ComSkip and HandBrake.

I'm using "Doc Martin - Rescue Me.ts" as my test file (since the only commercials are before and after the entire show) and the default comskip.ini (fc.exe confirms it's the stock comskip.ini from v0.81.051) correctly marked the before commercial but screwed up on the after so I began researching 'Tuning'. I found:Based upon a quick read of both of the above LINKs, I feel that parameters like 'brightness', 'logos' and 'volume' from #1, along with 'commercial size' from #2 would be places for me to start my simple tuning.

Is anyone currently used a 'Tuned' ComSkip.ini file and willing to post why they changed what they did from the original default comskip.ini file?

Or is anyone aware of a LINK to a good discussion on this topic?

Thanks in advance for any help / tips / etc...

I was looking around a while ago because I was having persistent com skip problems using the stock kmttg included version on my Mac. I stumbled across a file that gave recommendations changes geared to North American Cable settings. Comparing them to the stock comskip.ini there were several differences. Sadly, I was so wrapped up in my problems of the moment that I neglected to take note of the files location. I've looked around a bit now and can't find it again but if I find it, I'll post a link. I've wanted to tune the stock on as well but its basically working well enough as it. Just for fun.....
