mencoder uses the timestamps in the file. With TS captures from TV, the
time stamps don't start at zero (obviously the tv station doesn't start
broadcasting the second you happen to start your capture and go off the air
the second you stop).
If you play the file with mplayer, and generate the EDL file with mplayer's
-edl-out feature, you will probably find that your file really starts at
second 30,000 or something like that.
BTW, you will get more precise skipping if you also use -hr-edl-seek with
