[mythtv-users] Mets data (still)

One of the channels in Oz transmits h264 data that chokes mythtranscode. To deal with that I wrote a script that:

extracts the cutlist
recodes using mythffmpeg
applies the cutlist

If it is of interest I put part of the script below.

I used the scrip to prepare ‘The Bourne Ultimatum’, ‘The  Bourne Legacy’ and ‘The Accountant’ one after the other.

My Videos folder shows ‘The Bourne Ultimatum’ and ‘The  Bourne Legacy’ populated with cover art and with movie description while ‘The Accountant’ has no art and no metadata.

How could I debug ?
