The 'fixed' video.ts still has errors.
mythcomflag fails to rebuild seek table
mythtranscode (as above) fails to rebuild seek table

I trancoded the ts to mp4 using shotcut
that plays ok.
mythcomflag fails to rebuild seek table
mythtranscode does rebuild the seek table
the clip is trashed
  the first hour is the first 5 minutes repeated in no particular order
  ie min 1..5 is [seg1][seg2][seg3]...

  plays (say - I've not been careful documenting this - why bother)
  [seg2][seg1][seg2][seg2][seg14][seg3]... that sort of rubbish
  using E 1min <rt>

I'm going to try fixing using handbrake
I'm certain broken video files cause the mac frontend edit crash

The video is 'normal' ota broken.

If anybody would like the 'actual' file as opposed to my example bad file
please say and I'll upload.
