I've found that GOPchop does a decent job of cutting out commercials.
As for reduced bitrate, well, why not just record at the reduced
bitrate if that's the rate you want? Otherwise my only answer is
"diskspace is cheap" and DVDs aren't that expensive. Record at 1-2GB/hr
and you're at DVD quality and you wont need to transcode. GOPchop
to edit out commercials and then write it to the DVD.
