Tried running this script.  Has transcoded a few of the shows I was
having problems with using the built in transcoders.  Only issue is
the jump 30s, back 10s feature is messed up as mythtv still thinks it
is looking at the original file I suspect.  When I go into the delete
recordings section I still see the original file size, not the reduced
one.  Any ideas on a workaround to this?
