this is possibly OT, since everything displays correctly in MythTV, but
I figured somebody on this list may have seen this before, any may be
able to give me a hint.
I have MythTV running on a FC 2 box (runs nicely - kudos to everybody
involved, this is a very nice piece of software), using a Hauppauge
WinTV-PVR 350 card.
I want to burn some of the shows I recorded onto DVD, and I want to cut
out the commercials before doing so. That part works nicely too (using
Now for the problem - for a show that is 00:44:02 in length (this is
what avidemux tells me after the editing, verified by simply watching it
after it's burned on DVD, and that's what I also see when using
mplayer), xine claims the mpg is 00:11:49 only long.
This makes setting up the chapters for the DVD a bit awkward (since the
tool I want to use id gdvdauthor, which uses xine, as far as I can tell).
Has anybody seen something like that, where the total length of the mpeg
is seen as roughly a quarter of the true length? Oh, by the way, the
same happens when I feed the unedited .nuv file into Xine - so it's not
something I introduced whie editing out the commercials.
Thanks for any hints.
