Best way to just remove commercials for WMC and keep everything in Recorded TV

I just donated to MCE and Comskip since they seem like best solution out there. I use WMC with my HDHomeRun Prime tuners and its been working great. I just want to be able to go to my recorded tv screen in WMC and have all my shows look exactly as they do now just with no commercials. The closest I have come is having it use WTV unprocessed, skipping remux, and outputting the cut file back into the recorded video's folder with the same exact name. The only problem is, they no longer have a screenshot as an icon when viewing in wmc.

Also one other odd thing I noticed, probably just a wmc issue.. When I just converted a file and open WMC I go into recorded tv and it doesn't display the show properly, it just says its file name and says its only 1 minute. It plays fine though, just a display issue with the title information about the show but very annoying.

Anyone have any thoughts on what I am trying to do, is it even possible, or would this not work because if I set it to a schedule it would keep trying to reprocess all the files it already processed (not that it would be a big deal as long as it didn't change the files, processing time isn't a concern as its not re-encoding).
