[mythtv-users] watching mkv movies causes pausing problems

I searched this list but did not see any solutions.  Perhaps I'm the 
only person with this problem, even though that strikes me as odd...

I've been running Mythtv quite successfully for a couple of years. I've 
ripped my DVDs to mkv format using makemkv and Myth plays them back 
wonderfully. Almost. The time remaining, e.g. when paused, is always 
wrong. It's wrong by just a little bit (a minute or two) at the start of 
the movie and gets progressively worse so that toward the end of the 
movie it's WAY off (30-45 mins usually).

I could live with this but the worst part is that when resuming from 
pause it returns to where IT thinks I paused it, not where I really 
paused it. In other words, If I pause a 2:00 hr movie at the 1:55 mark, 
it states that I've paused it at the 1:20 mark and that's where it will 
resume from. I've learned to NOT pause movies, especially toward the end.

I'm now running .24 and this behavior has pestered me since .22. I 
should've gotten around to asking about this a long time ago.

Should this be reported as a bug?  Any help or advice welcome. Thanks!
