Is there still an issue with lossless transcode where it sometimes
discards the stereo audio track in favour of the mono sight-impaired
track instead? I've been editing my recordings outside mythtv since
that started happening.

I just skip 4 minutes and that usually works perfectly. I think E4 has
4.5 minutes of ads though which is most annoying :-(
