The follow script can be setup as a User Job to automatically flag and remove commercials from a recording.

#!/bin/sh
VIDEODIR=$1
FILENAME=$2
# Sanity checking, to make sure everything is in order.
if [ -z "$VIDEODIR" -o -z "$FILENAME" ]; then
        echo "Usage: $0 <VideoDirectory> <FileName>"
        exit 5

if [ ! -f "$VIDEODIR/$FILENAME" ]; then
        echo "File does not exist: $VIDEODIR/$FILENAME"
        exit 6

# The meat of the script. Flag commercials, copy the flagged commercials to
# the cutlist, and transcode the video to remove the commercials from the
# file.
mythcommflag -f $VIDEODIR/$FILENAME
ERROR=$?

        echo "Commercial flagging failed for ${FILENAME} with error $ERROR"

Please note that this script will save the original file as ${FILENAME}.old. You should periodically remove these files to save space. If you want to remove them automatically, you could use the following command:

find /var/video -name \*.old -ctime 2 -exec rm {} \;

Place this command into a script in /etc/cron.daily or into crontab. This will remove all backup files that are older than 2 days.

Note:

I update this script as I make changes to my own system. You should watch this article so you're notified of changes as they occur. If you do not have a wiki account and do not wish to create one you should check back periodically to get changes.
