comment What causes XP to lose the clipboard?
I forgot to mention that I'm using the PC in question via Remote Desktop from my Kubuntu PC at home. I've had other clipboard issues where the XP box gets items from the Linux one. I need to monitor the situation and look for patterns.
comment How do I transcode widescreen Freeview recordings on Linux
Installed Winff from Ubuntu repos, but it crashed when adding a file. Latest version did that too until I changed the GTK+ Widget Stype to Raleigh from QTCurve as described at biggmatt.com/forums/index.php?topic=525.0 I suspect the presets may be for US video as they are for 30fps. I don't mind running scripts and I'm sure someone must be running this sort of conversion.
