Ian, possibly related:  MythTV has 3 mechanisms for populating the
recordedseek table (used by the cutlist editor)
  - the original recording process
  - mythcommflag --rebuild
  - mythtranscode --buildindex

These generate different data in the recordedseek table.  I have found that
for my OTA ATSC recordings, "mythtranscode --buildindex" produces the most
accurate values, and I now have a user job that runs a script to do this
automatically for any recordings that I plan to edit. (This is in both 0.25
and 0.26.)  You may want to give it a try to see if it helps you get closer
"WYSIWYG" from the cutlist editor.
