some bad frames was causing the transcode utilities to bomb out or stop at the problem frame..

solution: I used the MythTV cutlist to stepover that section and mythtranscode cut bits 
out and successfully completed.
ie I cut out the prefix which had the bad frames thankfully it was the bit I didn't need.
