I use projectX to precut the commercials replacing the original mpeg
files with the project X cut mpegs. Then I use MythArchive to make
dvds. I have done this around 200 times with around a 99% success
rate.  Attached is my pxcut.sh script if you read the code it is
geared to my setup and not very flexible but it works for me. I also
use my own  mythburn.py script that removed the --fix_sync option on
mythreplex. The reason for this is with that flag enabled the audio
goes completely out partway through some recordings.
