Hmm, I'm testing with mkmovie to try to get some recordings as AVI's (I want to take them on my laptop for a trip I'll be taking soon overseas). Anyway, I tried one recording and after about 3 hours it errored out. Wondering if it might be the recording (and not wanting to wait 3 hours to troubleshoot) I snagged 11 seconds of caputure from the TV today and started running some test. Same results. OK, the output I get from the mkmovie is as follows;

Pos:  11.9s    361f (100%)  21fps Trem:   0min   2mb  A-V:0.024 [1373:384]

Any thoughts? I'm pulling my hair out here trying to fathom this one. These recordings are made with a PVR-250 if this helps/hinders :)
