Yes, I do...

- "Allow Commercial Detection jobs" is checked
- "Allow Transcoding jobs" is checked
- "Maximum simultaneous jobs on this backend" is set to 1 (I've tried
setting it to 2 as well)
- I've included the full path to mythtranscode within the backend config.

I just feel like I'm flying by the seat of my pants here since there
seems to be no logging or indication of what might be disabled or
preventing mythtranscode from running...
