The script on the wiki uses the -i option to mythtranscode like this:
mythtranscode --honorcutlist --showprogress -i $VIDEODIR/$FILENAME -o
That doesn't work. Try using this instead:
mythtranscode --honorcutlist -c $CHANID -s $STARTTIME --showprogress
Apparently --honorcutlist doesn't work with -i.
You will need to pass chanid and starttime into the script.
And call it:
/usr/local/bin/RemoveCommercials %DIR% %FILE% %CHANID% %STARTTIME%
Hope that helps. Works for me now.
