I've also been having problems with nuvexporting some DVB-T
recordings, and I wonder if my problem is related to this one,
although the symptoms are different.
For most of my DVB-T recordings, nuvexport works brilliantly. But for
a few recordings with bad enough interference to cause audio pops or
squawks, the exported avi loses sync pretty badly after the audio
problem, for the rest of the recording. I can play the original mpeg
recording under myth without losing sync.
I've also noticed that on a few avi files produced by nuvexport, when
I play them (using myth's internal video player), the program duration
reported by myth is much shorter than the actual program duration. I
can skip forward up until I get to the reported duration; after that
the program will still play fine, but I can't skip forward anymore.
Using mythcommflag --video on the program fixes this permanently, so
it's not a big deal. I haven't worked out what's special about some
recordings that makes this happen.
I'm running nuvexport version 0.3 0.20060315.svn, and the 0.19-fixes
branch of mythtv as of 2006-04-29 (sorry, I don't know the svn magic
to get the revision number) on an x86_64 under Debian sid.
