[mythtv-users] Nuvexport not cutting out commercials

Any help anyone?

I'm using nuvexport with mencoder. It seems to work great for making xvids,
but it does not like to get rid of the commercials.
If i record a 30 Minute Simpsons show, and flag the commercials, nuvexport
will usually get rid of the commercials. If i record a 2 hour moved though,
nuvexport will give me an xvid file that is 1 hour and 50 minutes long,
usually cutting out the last commercial. It will not cut out all the
commercials of videos though. I have no idea why not.
When i play the original mpeg2 video files (before converting them) in
mythtv, it skips the commercials just fine, so i know the commercial
flagging is working great.
The command I am running is: nuvexport --mencoder --gencutlist (use
mythcutlist option is set to yes)
Also, i tried this command on one of my videos just to make sure the
commercial flagging list was copied to the cutlist: mythcommflag
--gencutlist -f 1007_20070616200000.mpg

Then i ran "nuvexport --mencoder" and transcoded that same video file to an
xvid. The commercials were in the xvid file. When i went into myth and
played back the original mpeg2 recording (I have a pvr-500), the commercials
were skipped just fine by the myth internal player.
I am out of ideas, so please help.
Thanks for any comments or suggestions.
