Description

I'm having an issue that is similar to ticket #6626. A couple of times a week (especially for certain shows), mythtranscode using a Lossless profile generates a output file with the wrong audio track.

mythtranscode -v all --profile Lossless --video -i survivor.mpg -o survivor-transcode.mpg

The input file is an MPEG2-TS (from HRHomeRun) with 2 audio tracks. In the original, audio track #1 is 6 channel AC3 while audio track #2 is 2 channel. Audio track #2 is easy to identify since it plays back with a slight A/V sync issue. Audio track #1 is in sync (and 5.1 of course):

What makes this ticket different from #6626 is the log seems to show that audio track #1 is being selected properly:

The output file contains a single audio track. However, it's the 2 channel audio with the A/V sync issues. So, it appears that audio track #2 is actually being used.

I'll be happy to attach portions of the original file or output file if it would help.

Thank you for your help!

Dupe of #8180, #6626, and probably a half dozen others.
