    I think I am understanding what you are attempting to do.

    With Vidio Cassette Recorders (VCRs), when adverts where being broadcast it used to be possible on a VCR to pause the recording, and then at the end of the adverts to resume recording.

    This is not possible on any hard disk recorder that I know of. The only way to stop the adverts benig recorded is to stop the recording itself. From your description (so far) it sounds as though that is what you are doing.

    Yes when watching the recording use the skip keys to cut out the ads. The skip keys stop working when you would drop out of the currently recorded content.

    Do not stop the recording.

    Best to start watching the recording 10-15 mins after the recording has started.

    Simply select the incomplete recording from the recording list and elect to play it.

    The skip keys are the arrows either side of OK.

    By default forward skip is + 2 mins and backwards - 5 seconds.

    When the ads start press OK. If the current time indicator isn't blue press up to make it blue. For an average ad break press right twice (+4 min skip) if programme has restarted press back skip until you see the end of the ad break.
