You got it. avidemux2 generally works perfectly!
If you are using a mpeg2 encoder board, it is EXACTLY what you want.

I'm considering attempting to hack nuvexport by adding it as an export
option--That way nuvexport can act as a file manager of sorts, and
launch avidemux with the right file as the arg.

Tip (figured this out last night) Only effects std captures/sw encoded 

When mythtranscode does its magic, it corrects (mostly) the audio offset
in the rtjpeg original. (does a nice job) 

If you are loading the original rtjpeg for better video quality, it MAY
have large audio offsets.

avidemux handles this on export, but "appears" to freeze up in some
cases when doing cuts---It's just busy.(bug report filed) 

I have one recording that took 30 min per cut. It is an exception,
recorded with 0.13 IIRC.

The latest recordings I have made with myth* builds from thacs (mdk10) 
and local builds from cvs (sync 2 days ago) do not have this issue.
