Under the recording options you can set how you'd like it transcoded. I
believe the commercial flagging can be set in there as well.

Alternatively, after the show has been recorded you can run the
mythrename.pl script in /contrib to rename the recordings to something
readable and then run nuvexport to transcode the file to something else.
