I don't think I fully understand transcoding.. I've tried it out in the 
past. I was just being curious as to what it does. I have a few questions:
1. When you transcode does it remove the commercials if it finds a cut 
2. Does it save the recording it to a different location and preserve 
the original?
3. Just what does a lossless transcode do?

I have read most anything I could find on the subject,but like most 
things on the Internet most of the information is pretty dated....
