My capture card is a PVR-250 ( a pair actually )
00:0c.0 Multimedia video controller: Internext Compression Inc iTVC15 
MPEG-2 Encoder (rev 01)
00:0d.0 Multimedia video controller: Internext Compression Inc iTVC15 
MPEG-2 Encoder (rev 01)

The version of avidemux2 is: avidemux-2.0.28-4.rhfc1.at

I am using FC1 by following Jarod's instructions.  An apt-get 
update/dist-upgrade says everything is current.

The cpu in the backend is a 1.4 gig Athlon.  My nuvexport attempt was on 
the backend.

Here is what happens:

Finding the AV Offset to use with lvemux: -33
Finding framerate: 29.970
Last Frame 359535
Indexing the file with avidemux2
Cutting out commercials with avidemux2

Nothing happens after this.  I don't know if the last message means 
anything.  I have commercial detection turned off in the backend.

strace'ing the process yields nothing.  It doesn't appear to be making 
any system calls at this point.  I would have expected a 
read/process/write type scenario.

Any thoughts on how to proceed?
