Let me clarify our own terse post. We are and have been using the script
from here: 

We invoked the script by going through the mythweb interface where we
clicked on the title for the recording which gives access to run the
transcode job. What we see from the above information which we found via
logging is the script is passed a start time that appears to be a local
time and the recording file seems to have a UTC time value. Do we need
to modify the script to add 80000 to the time, UTC plus 8 hours for PST,
before passing the start time to the transcode command?
