The wiki merely mentions mythtv flagging commercials in the first
sentence, and then proceeds as though they have been flagged to talk
about removal. Thing is, I'm not sure myth necessarily flags the
commercials by default. Have you ensured that commercial flagging is
configured on your recording profile?
