Are you using the digital or analog aspects of this card?  If you are using
the digital aspects, you might need to go back to mythtv-setup and make sure
you enter the callsigns for these channels properly.  If you are using
analog, you should delete all your channels, and do a fetch rather than a
channel scan.

They still get recorded, but they are "flagged" to be skipped.  This should
happen on its own.  You have to go into the frontend interface however to
turn on "automatically" skipping the commercials.
