Excellent idea.  Or, give nuvexport (or whatever it is going to 
be called) the ability to strip commercials out so the file 
can be saved in a non-Recordings area.

Like I said, there were things I recorded that are not replacable.
I should have burned them to DVD - like my daughter being 
interviewed on TV - that I'm not quite sure how I'm going to 
replace.  If I could have, after this was recorded, I would 
have moved it to the permanent storage area, I just could 
never get nuvexport to give me just the 5 minute clip of 
her being interviewed, even with commflagging and all that.
