I have been playing around with Mythcommflag-wrapper 
<http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Mythcommflag-wrapper>. It needed some simple 
changes to work on 0.26. It also lost the dependency on myth-export ( In 
fact I couldn't get it to work properly with myth-export to find total 
no frames). I've moved what I can to mythutil, and deleted the comments 
that are no longer relevent. I added a few callsigns to the whitelist, 
but you need to make sure your own callsigns match !! [ on Freeview its 
ITV1 +1, on Freesat its ITV1+1 ]

I've added my edited version to 
http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Mythcommflag-wrapper. I have been testing on 
0.26, but it probably works on 0.25.

My changes are superficial, and are just an update of the previous 
script(s). It works for me, and on some programs its excellent, others 
its not so lucky, but its a great deal better than the built in 
mythcommflag for UK TV.
