can you provide any examples of the complete command line output of when it ‘fails’ and when is successful?

can i ask what the source stream is? server type/audio codec?

you might try

ffmpeg -ss 0 -i infile -t 01:01:00.000 -c copy outfile

Anyway, after having it running for a few weeks now I am facing an issue I have not yet found a solution. As extended internet searches did not help me either I am now seeking help here.
