My experience of vdrsync (mainly run through the GUI) is that creating
the animated menu pages fails quite often for BBC stuff. I think it is
ffmpeg that doesn't like them for some reason. The actual conversion
works fine: it just fails when creating the small preview images for the
menus, and then the whole thing fails because the files are missing!

I can't remember the name of the option but uncheck the checkbox which
leads to creating the animated menus. Worked for me.
