David, could this issue be the one that caused broken seektable
displays on a whole bunch of my recordings after upgrading to 0.25?
They display "2:01:49 of 2:01:49" (the length of the recording) no
matter the actual position. Seeking and skips do work; the display
just doesn't get updated. mythtranscode --buildindex doesn't fix the
issue (otherwise I wouldn't be writing this), and neither does
mythcommflag --rebuild.

Some other commonalities:

* They're all MPEG-2 from FireWire.
* Audio is present and works, but the playback debug window shows
  audio "Channels: 0".
* Related to the above: When lossless transcoded, they lose their
  audio tracks. (I know this is a longstanding issue with lossless
