Yes.  I saw your other post and meant to comment on it.  There are only
3 valid things to have in that field:

1) empty (meaning run mythcommflag using normal JobQueue arguments)
2) "mythcommflag" (meaning run mythcommflag with normal JobQueue arguments)
3) an exact command to run including all arguments (can have %ARG% substitions)

So, your command is probably doing the same thing that the OP's is doing, but
you don't notice it.  The same holds true for the mythtranscode command you
posted.  What happens when you try to transcode?
