The command line implies you have a .ac3 file already in TSMUXER and want to
rename it to fixed name txmuxer.ac3. A lack of expansion implies there is no
file matching that pattern. You can prefix simple commands with echo to test
their effect. If a pattern is not expanded, use ls to check what exists in the
source directory, and where it differs from your expectation.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
