Do not touch the MPEG file before you pass it to ProjectX as this is
likely to introduce further problems. You can use ProjectX to also
make cuts (I personally use a program called Cuttermaran to do
frame-accurate editing to remove commercials in Win2K after I have
used ProjectX to demux and correct errors). Cuttermaran will then
replex the files back together to give a DVD compliant MPEG file.

On another issue, how did the file get distorted in the first place?
