Is the reason smart resume is not a one button click to skip commercials due to patent workaround?

On my tivo I can click one button to skip commercials. On X1 I have to click fast forward five times and wait for smart resume to stop. This is inferior in two ways:



1) Takes longer to fast forward vs skip

2) Requires 5 button clicks vs 1 click on Tivo



Is the reason we cannot get one button skip due to patent issues now and is this simply a workaround? If it is a patent issue how much time remains on the patent from Tivo where we might see this feature?



I might suggest Comcast just buys Tivo for their patent portfolio so they can implement all the features they have been omitting due to patents. I noticed I cannot set season passes on the Xfinity app online also a patent issue I'm told.
