I came here from the link in your signature to look up an abbreviation. This is a most excellent TiVo-related list!

Question: In you abbreviations you list Skip Mode (SM). Does that refer to the 30-second skip, or commercial skip? I see some people referring to commercial skip as "CS" and was not sure of the proper abbreviation.
