I’m a first-week user of Tablo, and enjoying it so far. My setup is using Airplay via an iPad, to my AppleTV to view content.
On the iPad app, there is a 30 second skip button - but when using the apply remote it doesn’t quite work that way if no chapter markings are available. Per Apple at http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3176 the following applies:
|Skip to the next or previous chapter (if no chapter markers are present, this will skip 1/20th of the video length, or 30 second intervals whichever is longer.)||Press - then the forward or rewind button to skip chapters||Press the Down button, then Right or Left to skip chapters.|
This feature request is to automatically add chapters - pie in the sky would be chapter markings that denote commercials, allowing the chapter skip button to be one-click and commercials would be skipped.
Barring that, automatically encoding chapter markings at 30-second intervals would then allow that function to work via the remote, instead of having to pull out that iPad to skip commercials on a recording.
