Question about GE 35GT740 35" TV
I was given a GE TV with commercial skip. What is the commercial skip feature? Is it used to block commercials when recording a show?
When a commercial comes on, you press the "Commercial Skip" button on the remote. Then you see a 30-second countdown timer appear on the screen. If you think there will be more than 30-seconds of commercials, then press the button more (each time you press adds 30 seconds to the on-screen timer -- usually I press it 4 to 5 times). The timer stays counting down on the screen while you change channels during the commercials to see what else is on. When the timer counts down to 0, it is erased from the TV screen and the TV automatically changes you back to the channel it was on when you pressed the commercial skip button. I use this feature a lot! I wish all TV's had it built in. Some universal remotes have a similar (but more awkward feature) where the remote has the timer inside it, and it sends a signal back to the TV when the count is up, but I don't think this would work as well.
