#8539: Transcoding does not permanently remove commercials from recording

     Type:  defect                      |      Status:  new       
 Priority:  minor                       |   Milestone:  unknown   
Component:  MythTV - General            |     Version:  0.23-fixes

 I am using Mythbuntu 9.10, upgraded to Myth 0.23-fixes.

 I have a recording and have defined a cutlist to remove commercials et al.
 A transcode is immediately kicked off by MythTV as expected.

 When I view the recording in MythTV, the commercials are not shown (the
 cutlist is observed).

 As per the MythTV documentation here
 http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Creating_a_cutlist "Or you can start
 transcoding, which will permanently remove the commercials from your
 recording." or from here http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Removing_Commercials
 "If you now transcode this recording the system will take the Cutlist and
 produce an edited Recording ready to be exported." I have found that my
 recording is NOT permanently changed.

 Is this a bug with the software or incorrect documentation or user error?
