Doesn't the built-in transcode use the cutlists created by by 
mythcommflag?  That's the reason I haven't been using it.  The auto 
commercial flagging doesn't work that great on the shows I'm 
transcoding, so I've been manually flagging commercials and then using 

If I'm wrong about how the built-in transcode works, please let me know 
- I would love to automate the process.
