[mythtv-users] IPTV recorder seems broken -- large jumpy files

I have been trying to use the IPTV recorder to record from a particular
HLS stream.

The files resulting from this recording are on the order of 10GB per
hour, which is ridiculous.  They also "jump" around while trying to
play them, even with something as generic as mplayer.

I have used "ffmpeg -acodec copy -vcodec copy" to record from the exact
same m3u8 that I am giving to the IPTV recorder and I get something
more reasonably on the order of 1GB per hour and perfectly playable.

I wonder if anyone else has experienced anything similar.

I wonder if anyone has written an "external recorder" around ffmpeg as
a stream copier that they want to share as an alternative to the IPTV
