[mythtv-users] Lossless-cut Not Ubuntu

     Thank you for bringing this issue to my attention. Your bug report 
revealed two issues :  (1) The source tar package did not contain a 
number of new files added to the last release. (2) For completely new 
installs  the automatic creation of a lossless_cut.cfg file causes a 
script abort. Both of these issues have been fixed with release v0.1.6, 
please download source package 7 (v0.1.6) and give Lossless Cut another 
try. I also added the expansion of the tilde character if it is used 
with a "-f" file path.

I downloaded the new source package 7 (v0.1.6) and followed the Wiki 
source install instructions ending in a --test run and it all works now 
including the "~" path addition.

I can assure you that Lossless Cut works well with HDPVR recordings as 
that is the only recording device I have;) Occasionally I have seen 
HDPVR recordings that cannot be accurately cut but in each case this is 
due to some corruption (minor or major) in the original mpg video file. 
If you manually edited these same mpg files with Avidemux v2.5x you 
would experience the same issues.

Thanks again
