I'm trying to archive to ATSC recordings to DVD. After 7 1/2 hours of
MPEG2->MPEG2 transcoding and ffmpeg the second recording crashed on
mythreplex with the following error in progress.log:

Running the failed command manually runs for a while before I get this:

Can't find all required streams
Please check if audio and video have standard IDs (0xc0 or 0xe0)

One thing interesting to note. FFmpeg shows the audio of both
recordings as AC3 but mythreplex picks up the second recording as
EAC3. I'm not sure if this affected how mythburn.py treats the file
since grep'ing through it only shows references to AC3 not EAC3.

The EAC3 seems to be showing up in streaminfo.xml but I'm not sure
what actually creates that file.
