I assume you know that the pipe error is related to a messed up 
yuvdenoise, right?

if you have mpeg files, transcode can read those just fine, and has its 
own cutlist handling options (ffmpeg doesn't, so it requires using

Why aren't you just using myth's internal transcoder?  myth can play avi 
files as recordings, but you really shouldn't use it that way.  export, 
send them to mythvideo, and then delete the originals.

Personally, I wouldn't automate this -- about 1 in 15 files that go 
through transcode have messed-up audio because of glitches in the source 
mpeg files (which then need to be re-run with --force_mythtranscode 
since mythtranscode seems to have more robust mpeg playing code).
