Start Auto-Commercial Flagging jobs when the recording starts
If set and Auto Commercial Flagging is ON for a recording, the flagging 
job will be started as soon as the recording starts.  NOT recommended on 
underpowered systems.

in mythtv-setup on page "Job Queue (Global)".  However, like, 
"Commercial Flag New Recordings," it works only on (non-LiveTV) 
recordings.  You could always start a recording and watch as it records.
