I haven't gotten nuvexport working yet, but I have noticed that when I
play back some recordings after editing commercials, the playback cuts
too early for the commercials. Surprisingly, the commercial endpoints
seem to be correct. I'm using svn 8042, and using a DVB-T card. I
also seem to get strange commercial cutpoints, though I have no idea
whether that's the same problem or if the commercial flagger just has
a hard time handling Australian commercial breaks.
I wish I could help, but I have no idea what the problem is.
