I'm a little confused because maddox stated "I’ve confirmed that the button takes no action when selected via a harmony remote. It works as intended with the Siri remote. Very odd. I’ll be looking into it."
but yes harmony via IR
I sent in a video demonstrating this... you can see Skip commercial button bounce acknowledging the remote command.
Again in the video you can see the skip commercial button bounce acknowledging the remote button press.
If I use the iPad Apple TV remote app or the Siri remoteThe Skip Commercial button works.
If you want to face time in or team viewer in I would be happy to help
