A little comment about replex, i have a tt dvb-c card that have some
reception problems on certain channels.
Sometimes when i record with the dvb card the resulting file somehow gets
written corrupted, which casue problems for mythtv.
I have tried to fix the files with replex but it always quits at about the
same place as mythtv have problems, replex says something about video
ringbuffer overflow and some numbers.
I don't remeber the exact error message.

Any chance replex coud be made to handle those errors or even better fix
mythtv so it can handle those problematic files?

When this happeds i can play the file with video lan client on my windows
computer and it will usualy work prety well, the picture may freeze at the
problematic position but i can always fix that by jumping forward a bit in
the file.
