[mythtv-users] lossless transcode and cc data

Before I open up a bug ticket that could potentially represent a lot of
work, I wanted to make sure I'm not missing something stupid. It's a
fairly simple problem to reproduce:

1) Record a show with CC data (pretty much every show) using a PVR-x50.
2) Watch and confirm that the vbi data was embedded.
3) Create a cutlist, and losslessly transcode.
4) Watch and confirm that the CC is now absent.

*Technically*, that's not lossless, although I realize CC/teletext data
isn't important to most people. Obviously, unless I'm missing something,
such a bug would be wishlist anyway, but this short-coming should be
tracked. However, if anyone still has their CC data after transcoding,
I'd like to know how you have the relevant settings set. Anyone else
noticed this?
