[mythtv-users] How to Commercial Flag right away, but delay transcoding?

Hi All,

I'd like to begin commercial flagging immediately when recording a program on 
either of my tuners (pvr-150 and ATI HD Wonder), but postpone auto transcoding 
until the middle of the night. Is there a way to do this? I tried setting the 
option to commercial flag while recording, but set the window to run user jobs 
for late at night.  However, this seems to keep the commercial flagging from 
turning on too.  I did remember to restart the back end after making the changes.

The transcoding is just to save space, so no need to do that if we are going to 
watch and delete the show right away. Plus playback is less jumpy on HD (still 
trying to get that working right, BTW).

I tried searching on this feature, but did not come up with much on either 
mythtv.org or gossamer threads.
