Well I was able to use the patch posted to the list recently to apply
against mythburn-ui, and build that no troubles for one of these pre .19
versions (8662 i think i am running).
The scripts however, needed a bit of hacking at to make sure that they
weren't looking for "nuv" files anymore, but instead mpg. Also, I had
some trouble with Xvfb dropping all connections that project X made.
After all said and done, i've burned two dvds now.
I did one with commercials still in, no trouble, and then one with
commercials cutlists used. I haven't watched all the way through the
one with cutlists to make sure A/V is still synced up fine, but for at
least 40 minutes in it seems okay.
