Not sure if this helps, but there is in an option in mythtv-setup that
specifies that any commflagging job should be run before transcoding
jobs.  If you enable this, commflagging always gets done first.

Also, there is another option to defer transcoding jobs for 'x' number
of days.

I use this so that all of my transcoding happens in the middle of the
night and doesn't interfere with watching.
