Comment (by ramitbhalla):

 Yes I thought so too and debated it, you call finally but here' my

 Initially I thought it's a XBMC bug, then I relooked at it - how is it
 that XBMC is able to play the original file and not the remuxed file.
 Yes its possible there's a bug in XMBC - but I couldn't overlook the fact
 that if the Container formats were identical there wouldn't be an issue,
 possibly something is not right in the container created by FFMPEG which
 is causing XMBC to bug out.
 Again, not saying that it's not a XBMC problem but definitely there's
 something in FFMPEG which is creating the WTV container is a slightly
 differnet format than the original WTV container. (after all we're only
 remuxing it).

 Keeping the above in mind, here's something else anohter user reported in
 their XMBC logs (which also appears to use ffmpeg). Again keep in mind,
 there goal here is to find out what's differnet about the ffmpeg created
 wtv vs the original:
