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.

RCA XL 100 Commercial Skip TV

Only thing I can think of here is to get a Universal remote, then try these pins to Sync your TV with URM:
RCA - 000,003,004,005,007,009,011,015,048,082,092,094,
096,098,101,102,103,107,113,125,129,067,179,187,188,191,194
May not work 100%, depending on remote functions.
Instead of just buying any, you could maybe borrow one from a friend first of all.

How can i fast foreward commercials with the vcr

If you are watching a tape, simply use the FF button to skip forward until you see that the commercial is over, and then press PLAY to resume playing.
If you are watching a live TV program, the short answer is - you cannot. You need a PVR or TIVO or such device to be able to do that - and even then you have to be time shifted back at least the duration of the commercial you want to skip first!

Commercial skip/blackouts

Sounds like you're blessed to have a tv like that! Seriously: Some sets have settings that will cut down the sound during a commercial. Haveyou looked at your owner's manual? This tv may have setting to cut out the picture also when commercials come on. From a technical view point generally commercials have stronger signals than regular programming. This may be overloading your set. If this is the case, then you need to have it checked by good technician. A poorly operating power supply (not regulating properly) could possibly cause a problem like this. Also automatic gain control circuits could be not working properly. Stargazer

Hitachi skips over commercials & flickers

If by saying the "aspect ratio changes" you mean the picture shrinks from top and bottom, I would suspect an intermittent short inside one of your picture tubes. The commercial skip function is not causing a problem here. It is the rapid change from dark to light that I believe is putting an extra strain on a weak or defective picture tube.
