Thanks. I got that to work after I figured out that the first SQL
statement needed to be fixed with type=1 not the second. However I
only tried 1 recording and just watched that last night so I did not
comment on its success or failure yet. I will try to get back to the
other bug this weekend if possible (depending on what the wife has
planned for me).

I used to do that for a few years on all recordings but now I am back
to just cutting when archiving to dvd. I believe I did that because
the builtin mythtranscode always created an AV sync problem but the
external projectX did not.
