Can't skip commercials on pre-recorded programs.

I recently switched from DISH to Directv Streaming.  On DISH, I can skip ahead if I have recorded the program (not watching it live).  Apparently this is not the case with Directv Streaming?  I am VERY unhappy if this is the case.  Or is there a problem with the controller or settings?

Not sure what you mean by "pre-recorded programs". If you record from "live" channels, you can skip commercials. If you record OnDemand content, then you usually cannot skip them.

I have not used the “on demand” feature.  I don’t even know how it works.  I just recorded an ordinary program.

What channel(s)? 

What streaming device are you using?

You should be able to FF through commercials.
