John for a bear of little brain (AA Milne) I’m totally confused by your script:

#  Suggested work sequence is:
#     Preliminary test:  ~/mythTScut.sh /path/to/infile T 1
#         which will read the database and process a cutlist but should not touch the recording.

What are we trying to achieve

#     ionice -c3 ~/mythTScut.sh /path/to/infile R 1 NC

Umm again what are we trying to achieve

#       It's best to establish the cutlist here, or at least to confirm its accuracy.

What does best do and what is not best, what does establish the cutlist here mean.

#     ionice -c3 ~/mythTScut.sh /path/to/infile V 1
#     scan for new videos from the mythfrontend 'Watch Videos' screen
#     ionice -c3 mythutil --rebuild --video /path/to/the/video/outfile

Again confused about what is happening

I’m not trying in any way to dis your work, I just dont see how to use it
Thanks so
