Hi!  Well, nuvexport --transcode was working just fine for me, but for
some reason I have two problems now:

1) If I say yes to "Crop broadcast overscan (2% border)?" to yes, I
get the following:

You have chosen to export 1 episode:

  1. The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson:
     (8/25, 11:37 PM) 720x480 MPEG2 (4:3)
     Our Lady Peace performs.

* Separate multiple episodes with spaces

  c. Continue
  n. Choose another show
  q. Quit

Choose a function, or episode(s) to remove:  c

First pass...
Starting transcode.
processed:  0 of 118545 frames (0.00%), 0 fps

Transcode had critical errors:

[transcode] critical: invalid top/bottom clip parameter for option -j

If I don't set it to yes, it'll run, but it won't work because the
second problem is that when it does run, it takes FOREVER and it'll
run well over 100%.  For example, I had on recording run for 12 hours
and it said "processed:  995968 of 59205 frames (1682.24%), 17.53 fps"
before I just stopped it.   That was when I selected single pass. 
However, if I leave it a multi-pass, all I see is green.

Any ideas?
