[mythtv-users] MPEG2 Editing

This may be slightly off-topic, but I'm curious as to what others are 
using to edit videos.  I have a PVR-250, so I have MPEG2 files to edit. 
  I want to cut commercials out of my recordings (side note:  I've not 
used the built in commercial marking/cutting/transcoding as I've been 
unable to make it work.  I'd tag a file and mark it for transcoding, and 
the log showed the transcode process aborted due to "changes in the cut 
list file", start again, fail again, start again, fail again ad 
nauseum).  At any rate, I've tried GOPchop, which works pretty well 
until I try to watch the resulting videos in MythTV.  When I fast 
forward, it's not a smooth jump as it is in unedited files.  Instead, it 
  gets really choppy with large, square pixelated chunks of the image 
(if that makes any sense ;).  Any have any clues as to what I'm doing 
wrong?  If anyone can tell me how to fix my transcoding problems or 
point me to a web page that can, I'll take that too. :)  Thanks a lot!
