I did a test tonight and indeed it was mythtranscode --mpeg2 ("allways
use mythtranscode" setting) that was messing up the stream. Without
that, mythreplex and mythburn do a perfect job without changes. Maybe
a little more prudence or at least a warning that it could break an
otherwise perfect mpeg2 stream instead of only fixing audio sync
problems, would be in place?!

This was on a raw recording btw, so I'm very curious how this works
out on an edited recording...

Thx for listening and my apologies for crying wolf!

if but was of any use, it would be a logic operator
