[mythtv-users] Using transcode on NUV files

Does anyone know why transcode would fail out turning Myth NUV files 
into anything else? These files were copied and saved just before my 
first myth hard drive bit the dust, so they aren't in the database 
anymore (or on the same puter for that matter), so nuvexport and 
mythtranscode might be tough. I tried transcode, but it fails just 
seconds in complaining with the following error

(demuxer.c) invalid program stream packet size (1984/2048)

I found some info on the web, but nothing that actually said there was a 
resolution. Just asking where the stream came from and mentioning that 
the vob decoder was pretty strict about the 2k packet size. I've also 
tried nuvexport, but I think it dies because I try to run it on the 
machine I want to use to edit these files which is lacking myth. I'm 
transcoding so I can cut them up some and archive 4 or 5 at a time to 
DVD using menus and whatnot. Obviously can't use mythtranscode here either.

Does anyone know a way to do this?
