I've seen my emails in the archives about manually removing commercials
using mythtranscode and  mythcommflag.  I've tried many of the the suggestionss
and still don't have it right.  I'm trying:

mythtranscode --chanid ${CHAN} --starttime ${START} --honorcutlist --showprogress --mpeg2
mv ${HOME}/${CHAN}_${START}.mpg.tmp ${HOME}/${CHAN}_${START}.mpg
mythtranscode --chanid ${CHAN} --starttime ${START} --showprogress --mpeg2 --buildindex --allkeys
mythcommflag --chanid ${CHAN} --starttime ${START} --clearcutlist

But the skiplist is still intact.  My 30 minute recording is now 20 minutes.   The flags show that commercials have
been flagged,  but no cutlist.  Running mythcommflag --getskiplist shows the skip list.  When I watch the show,
it still skips over the spots were commercials use to be.  If I edit and watch frame-by-frame,  the program
is still there in the frames that are being skipped.  I turned off autoskipcommercial, but it still skips the 

How do I clear the skiplist?   I think that's the only thing I have left to do.
