I was going to suggest avidemux as the only program I could find that
made any sense to me. And I have successfully cut videos from mpeg
files that mythtv recorded into new mpeg files. I remember that I had
to pay attention to Transport Stream (TS) versus PS whatever stream
and it failed on some files because of errors in the recording. There
is some information here:
about that problem. So far nuv-files have stumped me but only because
I got scared of ProjectX.

ProjectX seems to be the solution to all and everything when it comes
to video and repairing them. I am by no means an expert in this but I
would try that next.

Good luck!
