For a while I've not been able to create a DVD. That was recently fixed.

But now if I create a DVD using transcode only the first half of the recording 
has sound, the second not.
If I use projectX an iso is not created and the log ends with:

renameProjectXFiles start -----------------------------------------

tokens[3]), False)

This behaviour occurs with multiple recordings, all of which can be watched 
without any problems in mythtv.
Some recordings work normally.

Is this an error? Are all my recordings defective? Should this be raised as a 

If my recordings are defective should we not have myth be more robust?
