It's part of the recording schedule - Post Recording Options (or something
along those lines - I'm not in front of my TV)  Just check off to "Run
User Job #1" or whichever job is the one you set up..

I think you'll have to figure out a way to make your job wait for
commercial flagging to complete, or else do the flagging in your user job
as well, but what you've described doesn't sound unusual at all.
