Go into mythtv-setup on each of the other backends and turn OFF the
setting that says "Allow Commercial Detection jobs".  Commercial flagging
jobs can only run on backends that have this setting turned ON.

Possible and designed to allow it. :)  You can do the same with the
transcoding and User Jobs.
