[mythtv-users] Transcode Problems

Having a strange problem with transcoding... it seems that my automagic
transcoding is failing more than 75% of the time for an unknown reason.  I'm
not getting any reasonable output in the logs of why this error is
occurring.  Here's what I have so far:

2007-03-31 17:55:00.894 Transcoding from /mnt/video/1070_20070327203000.mpg
to /mnt/video/1070_20070327203000.mpg.tmp

2007-03-31 17:59:16.403 transcode: Transcode Errored: South Park "Professor
Chaos": (Low Quality)

Sometimes a transcode job will get nearly done... and just fail... The error
that shows up in the Job Queue... is:

Transcode failed with status: 0

I've set my system to keep an extra 20GB of space free... and I've been
pretty much at that threshold for a while... will transcoding fail if it
reaches that threshold while transcoding?

I'm totally at a loss here.
