    I have been trying to get comskip to work in eyetv so i can export my recordings commercial free to itunes. I keep getting a video pid error, and I guess im just not familiar with the different video pids and how that all works.

    has anyone had success setting this up?

    thanks!

    I got it to work - by which I mean that it ran automatically and did things to my recordings. Unfortunately, what it did to my recordings was not helpful. It didn't do a good job of marking commercials at all. It missed some completely and it marked some actual bits of program as commercials. I think the networks have started playing games with the way they insert commercials that makes them hard to mark automatically.

    I deleted comskip and now edit my recordings manually. After the first few times going through this, it has become much easier and I can edit a 1 hr show in less that 5 minutes now.

    Hope it works better for you!

    im afraid thats probably the route I will take. I usually just open the eyetv package and copy out the iphone version to another folder and load them into itunes and fast forward thru the commercials. I just got the turbo h.264 usb and its allot faster and the quality is better, so I guess I will jsut export them commercials and all.
