 	Quick question Re nuvexport and mpeg2->mpeg2 direct cutting.  I'm 
planning on trying this with the newly rebuilt box so I don't have to hand-cut 
the commercials.  How well does the script deal with glitched frames in the 
audio?  I do basically the same as the script for my hand-edits (avidemux2, 
cutlist, etc), but I've noticed that ivtv produces a bad audio frame roughly 1 
in 10 hours.  It causes barfing of the muxer and drops the audio past the bad 
frame.  If I use avidemux2 to re-encode the *audio*, I can fix the recording 
(basically removing the bad audio frame).

 	Has anyone tried this and can attest to the robustness?  I'm also 
thinking of hacking the script to apply my re-encoding parameters to avidemux 
to convert from 640x480 (ivtv) to 352x480, 2-pass, denoise for dvd authoring. 
I basically do this via a script (once the cutlist is defined), so it shouldn't 
be too tough.
