Mythtranscode will likely only replace the existing file if told to do 
so as part of a task through the jobqueue.  Running it independently 
through a user job will not do it.

When you create a cutlist, MythTV will automatically skip through any 
area defined with that cutlist.  It will appear as if the cuts have 
already been applied, but you are still using the old file.
