Easiest way would be to just turn off auto-skip when watching that show.
Or you can edit the database and delete the rows from the recordedmarkup
table for that recording.

delete from recordedmarkup where chanid = CHANID and starttime = YYYYMMDDHHMMSS;

substituting in CHANID for the channel ID of that recording and YYYYMMDDHHMMSS
for the year/month/day/hour/minute/second for that recording.

The commercial flag list is not stored in the cutlist as indicated by another
reply to this thread.
