What format did you transcode to? AFAIK, the PVR-350 only
plays MPEG2 streams. Transcoding to MPEG2 is disabled by
default, so you're probably not transcoding to MPEG2.

Only if they're MPEG2. [Though I'd be pleased as punch to find
out I'm wrong and the '350 can play MPEG4 streams...]

Enable the MPEG2 transcoding option (you've got to hack a C++
file and then rebuild MythTV), and then select MPEG2 output
format instead of MPEG4 or RTJPEG. Then you'll have to arrange
to run the commerical-flagging program with the -rebuild flag
to regenerated the seek database for the file.
