So that works? My dad has a bunch of old family videos on tape. He
'interviewed' a bunch of my now gone relatives. He wants to digitize
them with the PVR-150 I set up at their place and then burn them to
DVD for the rest of family.

3GHz P4HT. Took about 10-12 minutes for the whole movie. The results
weren't too bad. It missed 4 commercial breaks. I have to go back and
see if they were flagged or not in myth. I guess if they weren't that
I could somehow add them within the E/Z editor.

Thanks for your help.

At this point I think my one mystery is what happened to this episode
of Navy NCIS such that I have no commercials flagged and do nto seem
to be able to get them flagged. Very strange.
