The avidemux method will not work on recordings with AAC audio. I have
a hacked-up version of the script which checks the source files and
transcodes AAC to stereo AC3 first, but I'm not sure it's in a usable
state right now. It's also based on the older version of Robert's
script which still relied on a patched mythcommflag.
