Yep, that problem happens when mythburn tries to cut commericals from
the mpeg2 files. To do so, it needs to find the number of the last
frame, which it gets from the recordedmarkup table. 

Problem is the type of marks in the recordedmarkup table; PVRx50
recordungs have type 6 marks (gop counters?) while DVB records type 9
markers (frame numbers).

Support for comericial cutting in mythburn is flakey at best [I should
know - the commerical cutting hack for mythburn was mine]; there just
isn't any tool that can do frame accurate mpeg2 cuts without reencoding.

Bye, Martin
