Worth a try, though I presume one would have to then do some more to be
able to export mythtv's cutlist.   The grail, of course, is to take
a mythtv recorded program with cutlist, and generate a cut-down mp2 or
mp4 with good audio sync which can either be played externally (mplayer/xine
or players on other OSs) or reincorporated back into myth.

(Of course, if myth's internal transcode did better on HD files, that
would be the easiest way to attain the latter goal.)

What will projectX do for me?  It doesn't appear to have editing.
Is it just to get the file into a place where avidemux2 can read it
without losing audio sync?
