For some reason, half the time I run it it fails to do so.

I wrote a patch to ivtv's mpegindex last night that will write a human-readable
list of GOP beginning offsets, and a Perl script that loads them into the DB. 
I'll post the patch and the script later today once I clean them up.  MUCH
faster and more reliable than mythcommflag.
