Comment remove commercials on other OSes from other stream (Score 1) 369

I know you can flag commercials and skip them from within MythTV, but I was wondering if there is a way to do a similar thing so I can flag a commercial from another video source, like say from a TiVo that I downloaded the show from.

Before someone tells me to just get a MythTV box, let me just say that I bought a lifetime subscription TiVo before MythTV was adequate and I don't have any spare computers lying around or enough money to build a new one for this purpose.

My end goal is to automatically download shows from my TiVo to my Mac, remove the commercials via a MythTV port, and then convert them to play on my iPod. I can get everything to work automatically except for the removing the commercials part.
