I've seen this happen occasionally. I'm not sure what the cause is; it just
crops up from time to time. One of these days I'll investigate the matter in
more depth. I suspect, but am far from positive, that it has to do with
chapter breaks. If you've still got the original recording, I suggest trying
again using a different theme (preferably one that creates different chapter
break points) and/or transcoding the program before recording it. It's
conceivable that either approach will fix the problem.

No, I've never used mythrename.pl, and I've seen the problem. OTOH, if *ALL*
your DVDs now have this problem, it's conceivable that mythrename.pl is to
blame. I just see it every now and then (maybe every 10-50 recordings) on a
seemingly random basis.
