I'm very interested in your script. I recording UK DVB-T and manually 
create a cutlist to cut out ads and trim the start and end. I would like 
to do a lossless transcode on this but this removes the DVB subtitles 
stream, which I sometimes use. Your script sounds like it will do the 
trick for me, will it?
