After spending a few hours digging thru the archives on this topic, I 
still didn't find any discussion that had concise steps to cutting 
commercials and burning dvd. I am sure people out there are doing this. 
I have a PVR-350 and I want to burn the movies I record to a dvd after 
cutting the commercials.  I don't want to lose any quality. I want the 
resulting mpeg after cutting the commercials to be still mpeg-2 and not 
mpeg-4. I can copy the file to windows and use pinnacle studio or 
something like that to dtect scenes and then edit out the commercials, 
but that is too much work and takes time. I don't much time to spare on 
this given that we have a 1 year old who keeps us busy and then work 
too. I would appreciate if anybody out there is already doing this and 
share a mini-howto of cutting commercials out of the mpeg2 files output 
by the pvr-350 and then burning them to a dvd.

Thanks in advance
