Ahh...  I see. Thanks Raymond.

I notice the command in setup for transcode is simply, "Mythtranscode".  Do
I need put my entire user job command there complete with the, " --chanid
%CHANID% --starttime %STARTTIME%" parameters that follow the command, or
will these be passed automatically, and only the script file path/name is

Also, as I stated in my original post, I used your, "Transcode wrapper stub"
from the wiki to build my script.  Can you tell me what the line,
"flush_commskip = True" Does?  Am I deleting the commercial flags with
this?  Would changing that to false fix my problem, or do I need to leave it
as true and swap the transcode command like you said above?

Thanks for the help:  Raymond and Mike.
