Comment (by J.Pilk@…):

 As I suggested in Comment 10, the ProjectX output is from a few GOPs at
 the start of the recording and a few at the end - presumably not what was
 intended; so the translation from Myth cutlist to ProjectX cutlist needs
 to be revised in Mythburn.py, too.  mythcutprojectx uses bytecount
 positions, mythburn.py uses frame counts. I had one pathological recording
 where the bytecount approach worked and the framecount didn't, but it may
 be that framecount is usually more precise.  It seems to me that the
 bytecount algorithm ought to cut only at keyframes, but in practice I get
 the impression that it's finer-grained than that.  Could be, of course,
 that the commercial breaks are also tied to keyframes, but the Myth editor
 doesn't suggest that.  It probably varies from one edit desk to another,
 anyway - not to mention international differences.

 This looks to be a separate issue from the elusive subtitle stream.
