Have you found this wiki entry yet?

Peter has added the PSP entries which I use.
So what happens now is when I record the show in the Myth Frontend, I have 2
user jobs that run right after:
1.  Remove Commericials
2.  Transcode for PSP

The shows I tape typically have excellent commercial detection, so I am okay
if it misses a few spots.

I install the Transcode job with:
./pdatranscode.pl --transcoder psp --install-job-number 2 --install-job-name
"Transcode for PSP"

I install the Remove Commercials scripts with:
            UPDATE settings 
               SET data='/home/mythtv/bin/removecommercials %DIR% %FILE%' 
             WHERE value='UserJob1';
            UPDATE settings 
               SET data='Commercial Removal' 
             WHERE value='UserJobDesc1';
            UPDATE settings 
               SET data='1' 
             WHERE value='JobAllowUserJob1';

Hope that helps.
