Windows Media Center (Vista): add-on or software for cutting tv recordings?

I own a Windows Media Center (Vista) which I use for recording tv shows and movies. I'd like to archive some of the material I record. I need a good solution which allows me to cut the recordings in order to have smaller files.

I have used a combination of DVRMSToolbox and good old VirtuaDub to convert and edit the recordings. DVRMSToolbos has the option to auto-decode anything you record, using a drop folder. You can use VirtuaDub to edit the movie, and convert it to xvid. Both are free.

If you don't mind switching software, MythTV has all that functionality (including automatic advert detection). It's primarily a Linux solution, but there is apparently now a working Windows version.
