Ah, I misunderstood.  Since it required a GTK compatible
display, I thought it required user-interaction like GOPchomp.

For the record: the MPEG2->MPEG2 mode in mythtranscode produces
files that don't play back smoothly on a PVR-350, but they do
seem to play fine in xine and mplayer. If they play OK on a DVD
player then that option will probably work, since the only time
I'm going to take the time to cut the commercials out is when
I'm burning a DVD.

Cool. If mythtranscode doesn't work out, I'll definitely give
mpeg2cut a try.
