[mythtv-users] Unusual Audio/Video lag on an AMD64 3000+

I'm attempting to rebuild my database due to the seektable being completely 
messed up-- I've come to the conclusion that the lag is caused by the 
seektable. On pre-recorded recordings, I have to rewind about 2 min for the 
video to be clear and without 'visual skipping'.

Here's a potential problem that I have found:

Commercial flagging is putting my sound out of sync... Assuming it's 
actually flagging commercials (I'm pretty sure they are). I haven't set 
mythTV to remove commercials... but why does it still flag them anyways? I 
would prefer if they were not flagged to see if that were indeed the 

Here's the error that i'm getting using myth.rebuilddatabase.pl:

To clarify, which script is not working, and what error are you getting?
