I have a set up with two sources of input: an HDHomeRun Prime (Spectrum) 
and an external tuner that reads from a web site. The recordings from 
the HDHomeRun Prime get created correctly and everything works fine. 
When I use the external tuner, it creates the video of the correct 
length but skipping forward doesn't work. If the video is an hour say, 
when I skip forward 30 seconds it will say 6 minutes or something like 
that. If I get to the end when skipping forward it starts the video 
over. If I just let the video play, it plays for an hour.

If I play the video as an ASF stream through MythWeb (through VLC on 
Windows) the video plays fine and is of the correct length. I can jump 
around through the video this way (but no commercial skip).

The external tuner uses this ffmpeg command on reading:

command="ffmpeg -hide_banner -nostats -loglevel fatal -re -i %URL% -c:v 
copy -c:a copy -f mpegts -"
