Not really relevant to peer-to-peer but more relevant to the
MythTV on cygwin thread.  My answer is short enough though, so I'll
just respond here.

The commercial flagger basically just plays the video, so if they do
get mythfrontend working under cygwin, then mythcommflag should work
as well since it doesn't even require any video output, just text.  You
could run manual (or automated with a script) mythcommflag jobs on the
windows box if mythcommflag was working.  I don't believe a backend
requires a video capture card to be configured even though it requires
the header files to compile, so if the backend was working, then you
could just setup that backend as a dedicated commercial flagging
host with current CVS.

-users is fine, but please start a new thread if you have further questions.
I don't read all the messages in here but hit all the ones with
"Commercial(s)" in the subject. :)
