Yeah, the clear cut list didn't work. To clarify the workflow here, I
was recording the Oscars on a US channel which suddenly seemed to have
some video glitches. Started a 2nd recording on the Canadian

Originally thought I might have to stictch them together with ffmpeg
to create one recording.

Before I experimented with that I made backup files of both
recordings, US and Cdn.

Since only the US recording had the beginning I edited it down from a
23 gig file to a 1 gig file in Myth. Lossless transcode.

After spending some quality time with the two files, I'm beginning to
think the few glitches in the US broadcast are bearable.

I copied the 23 gig file back over the 1 gig edited file.

Myth sees it as a 17 minute file. If I look in any other player
outside of Myth, it's a 3+ hour file.

So...should I try the rebuild?
