Last night's nuvexport didn't finish - that happens every now and then.
It died 97% of the way through the first pass. Usually it works on a
retry - I suspect there's some timing relation.
But the real news is that I went back and touched my recording profiles
- did nothing more than walk through the menus. Now when I dump the
database, those fields are no longer null. What's more, I can use the
first command you gave me to ID the mpeg file, and it works. I don't
need the "-demuxer lavf" flag. In addition mplayer now has sound, and
the hate-mail is gone. In essence, it's all fixed.
One side note... Last night when I started nuvexport, it was running at
about half the speed I normally get, perhaps a bit less. I suspect that
the same factors causing mplayer to emit all of the hate-mail were
giving transcode problems as well, causing the slowdown and eventual
So I strongly suspect your 20100301 snapshot is sufficient for Gentoo,
along with walking through the recording profiles.
I also realize that my fear of 0.23 is probably spawned by the
difficulty of the 0.22 migration, and probably the move to 0.23 won't be
nearly so bad. It certainly wasn't bad moving through 0.19->0.20->0.21.
