[mythtv-users] nuvexport and daylight savings time

I'm encountering problems exporting recordings (via nuvexport) that were
recorded before the time change related to daylight savings (Oct 29, 2006).
For example, an episode of The Office that was recorded on Sept 28th:

MySQL shows the following:

*mysql> select title,subtitle,starttime,basename from recorded where title =
'The Office';

| title      | subtitle           | starttime           |
basename                |
| The Office | The Convention     | 2006-09-28 20:30:00 |
1025_20060928203000.mpg |
Both the starttime and the file name show a start time of 20:30.

However, nuvexport lists "The Convention" episode at an hour earlier:

*  1. The Convention (Thu Sep 28 07:30 PM) 480x480 MPEG2 (4:3)
      Michael organizes a party in his hotel room when he, Dwight and Jan
      attend a convention in Philadelphia.*

and it also attempts to transcode the file using that time as well (from
nuvexport --debug):

/usr/bin/nice -n19 /usr/bin/mythtranscode --showprogress -p '0' -c '1025' -s
'2006-09-28T19:30:00' -f "/tmp/fifodir_14123/" --honorcutlist --fifosync
This, of course, then fails with the following error:

*2007-01-15 14:17:26.521 Using runtime prefix = /usr
2007-01-15 14:17:26.590 New DB connection, total: 1
2007-01-15 14:17:26.610 Enabled verbose msgs: important
Couldn't find recording for chanid 1025 @ 2006-09-28T19:30:00
This does not happen for recordings which happened after the time change.

So my question is: is this a bug in nuvexport, or a time configuration issue
on my MythTV box?

Any pointers on how to resolve this?
