I see this issue has now resurfaced as ticket 8495.  I'm a regular user 
of MythArchive and I would suggest an approach that doesn't try to do 
everything all at once - at least until you have reached some 
familiarity with how it works.  I don't know what your recording format 
is, either.  But have you tried transcoding with the cutlist outside 
mytharchive?  It doesn't sound like it - playback when a cutlist exists 
will use it.  If and when you have the recording as you want it try 
MythArchive again, and create an iso image that you can test before 
trying to burn the DVD.  Then I use k3b to burn-and-verify.  Things may 
still go wrong, but at least you may have made progress and won't be in 
the all too familiar ' MythArchive failed with error 6' situation.
