Comskip setup

New forum member, but long time sagetv user and forum lurker.

I am doing a completely fresh setup of a sage server and clients. 6.6.2

It's been a while and although have read many posts here on comskip I am still a bit confused by what goes where.
All of my recordings are stored on the sage server in a shared directory. Sage servers path to recordings is via UNC. The server is an XP Pro machine and is part of my home domain.

I want to install comskip monitor on the server to create the comskip files for use when viewing by sage clients on two other PCs.

Do I need to install JUST the comskip monitor v2.7 on the server or also comskip80_025 on the server?

On the clients, what do I need to install besides importing the comskip playback.stvi? Do I also need to install comskip80_025 or does the playback use the comskip.exe on the server?

Sorry for being dense. I did try to figure this out before posting. I read the setup on at
but after doing it that way (it seemed to imply you don't need a separate comskip.exe on the client becuase it never said to install it) any time I tried to run a manual commercial detect from the client on a recording I got a failure message, which I assumed was because it could not find the comskip.exe

I just need a nudge in the right direction. Thanks
