I am using DVB too, HD-3000 and in the US here.

  Chris, I just tried watching a Movie I recorded last night from another
channel (Head of State) and it doesn't exhibit the issue... it works like
it's supposed to.  I watched two commercial breaks worth and it was perfect
both times, I then rewatched Starwars II for a couple of breaks and it was
about 30 seconds early both times.  The recordings that don't work are
coming from my FOX station.  They may have FPS rates on commercials while
ABC doesn't.  Unfortunately, I don't have any movies from other channels
currently.  I hope this information helps.

Peter, On a side note: If you want to get nuvexport working you can do what
I did.  Just hack up the *.pm files.  I manually hacked the ffmpeg.pm to get
rid of the -hq switch that newer version of ffmpeg doesn't handle and also
added some switches of my own.  I'm mainly transcoding stuff like "The
Simpsons" and "Southpark" (mostly cartoons) for archiving so I used switches
that change the aspect ratio and crop off the black bars and also change the
frame rate to 25fps to save space.  Works like a charm!

Good luck and thanks for the confirmation, I was really starting to think
that I was an isolated issue. :)
