I could never get Project X to work right on my system. And now it 
doesn't matter, because the latest SVN mythtranscode does that anyway. 
It can cut commercials, keep audio/video in sync (and fix some sync 
issues if the exist) and leave the original format in tact, minus the 
commercials. It's almost at the 'holy grail' stage for me. Check the 
trac commits for mythtranscode, and/or the myth-dev list for mpeg2fix or 
mythtranscode from the last 2 weeks.
