if it's not currently built in...  you may be able to do this with
cron.  you would have to do a bit of scripting yourself but it
probably wouldn't be too difficult.  i'm pretty sure mythtranscode can
be run from the command line.  if not, there are other options like
'transcode', which will also use the cutlists and remove commercials.
