Thanks @tmm1! (makes a good stocking stuffer)
@tmm1 thanks for the fix. it appears to work!
@tmm1 Something isn't totally correct. On an ATV4 commercial skip works fine on 11.26.2014 but on 12.22.1829 it doesn't always work correctly. Sometimes you hit the button and get a 30 second skip, sometimes I get a commerical skip and sometimes it just pauses.
After I replicated it again this morning, I submitted diagnostics from the Apple TV.
Which button? What mode is commercial skip in on the client app?
I am clicking on the right side of the pad at the top of the remote. Commercial skipping is set to "Manually".
