[mythtv-users] mythtranscode eats part of my recordings

So I've tried binaries/SO's from ATRPMs 0.20.2-169, 0.20.2-166. Both fail
in the same way. I've also tried binaries/SO's built straight from SVN both
head, revision 14618 (which I think 0.20.2-166 is built against), and the
bleeding ATRPMs - and those work... with the DB errors
So I suppose there are two possibilities:
1.) Something is different between the way the non-bleeding ATRPM's
mythtranscode works and the way the SVN mythtranscode works. If I could get
the SVN or the bleeding version to play nice with my database I would be
fine - but that doesn't resolve whatever issue is lying in the non-bleeding
2.) The fact that the bleeding ATRPMs and the SVN trunk aren't getting
information out of my database correctly is preventing it from behaving the
same way - but that seems less likely. I'm producing usable transcoded
video from the command line even with the DB errors.
Only briefly looked at modifying the libmyth source from SVN for an SVN
mythtranscode that finds the right tables/columns in my database - haven't
figured all the mappings out. Not sure I want to update to SVN or
bleeding..... I'm just not that brave.
