[mythtv-users] mythtranscode eats part of my recordings

I think I have a partial solution.  I built the SVN version of mythtranscode
and it appears to get through just fine (I'm not somewhere where I can watch
the output, but it finished without errors and in a reasonable amount of
time) - however the new mythtranscode doesn't play well with my current myth
install (version 0.20.2-166.fc6):

I'm not terribly surprised, but I'm not sure where to proceed.

Do I continue trying to wedge the newer mythtranscode in?  Do I update to
SVN?  atrpms has a slightly version of myth (0.20.2-169.fc6), but I'm not
sure that has any relevant changes I need for mythtranscode.

Does anyone have any advice on either front?  Thanks!
