Will Thxs,

The patch applied OK. 
So far negative results but it could be the setup. It has many variables
and I have to spent sometime looking at everything.

1. I can produce an iso using the simple autoplay as before

2. This iso still contains the cut list despite the fact I did mark it
to be removed (the scissors icon becomes red)

3. Menu do not work but this is another problem. 

Will from where do you get your recordings? Are you using the hd-pvr
connected to cable box or satellite box?
