I am getting the following errors while trying to run replex 0.1.3 on 
the .ts files recorded using Air2PC-ATSC:

It seems that a similar problem was discussed and fixed about a year ago 
(see the thread in 
however apparently it still exists for some files. I did verify that my 
source (from http://www.metzlerbros.org/dvb/replex-0.1.3.tar.gz) 
includes the patch that was posted in the mail thread.

I posted a sample problem file at http://home.comcast.net/~mythtv/foo.ts 
(10sec, 11Mb)
